Kris Lindsay has called for one more big effort from Dungannon as they aim to make it a magnificent seven days against Warrenpoint.

The Swifts beat Crusaders last Saturday and dumped Glenavon out of the Irish Cup on Monday.

And this evening they are seeking a hat-trick of wins as they return to league action at Stangmore Park.

Lindsay is expecting a tough game from a Warrenpoint side who recovered from a 5-0 thrashing by Glentoran last weekend to beat Larne Tech OB in the Cup.

"We know it will be extremely difficult," the Dungannon boss said. "Warrenpoint have excellent players and Stephen McDonnell has them playing well.

"They play good football. They are big and they're strong and powerful, so we will need to recover properly after Monday.

"We need another big effort. We need to take the game to them - we are at home, we want to pick up another three points."

Sign In

Tonight's game is Dungannon's fourth in 11 days - a big ask for part-time players.

Lindsay saw Christopher Hegarty (hamstring) and Michael Carvill (ankle) limp off on Monday. However, he has no complaints about the packed fixture list.

"Friday night is another big one, and that's the way you want it," he added. "You want to be playing big games, especially when we are on the run of form that we are - you want the games to keep coming."

Dungannon can go seventh with a win, and that is their main focus with relegation worries fading fast.
