McKinstry hoping to make it five-alive

Gary McKinstry wants to keep shocking the Irish Premier League.

His Armagh City side have gone on an amazing four match winning run and they are the form team in the league.

They have also jumped from being at the foot of the table after five games to eighth place just seven matches later and now McKinstry wants to keep on going.

"We've instilled belief in the players and weeded out those who I thought were just along for the ride and were happy to relax and not work as hard as I want players to work.

"I can say with confidence that no team in this league works harder than Armagh City and it will take a very hard working to beat us at the minute."

Coleraine are next up for City this afternoon and having lost twice to them in the CIS Cup McKinstry knows plenty about Marty Quinn's side.

"They are in a false position," he said.

"We're not and we're not that far from safety. Once we achieve that people will be surprise at where we finish."
