Kris Lowe insists there is no sense of panic at Dungannon Swifts despite their poor form.

The club is bottom of the Danske Bank Premiership with a quarter of the season gone, with a 2-0 home defeat to fellow strugglers Warrenpoint in their last league game only heightening the sense of concern.

They also face a tough task at Ballymena United this weekend, and Lowe admits that performances and results need to improve, but is confident there is plenty of time to put things right.

"By no means is it panic stations yet, but we do have to perform a lot better," he said. "We know the quality that is within the group, but a few things haven't gone our way.

"We've missed a couple of penalties at crucial times, but that can happen in games and it's up to us to put that right in other games. It's certainly not all doom and gloom and, come the next game, we'll go again."

Dungannon have just one win from their opening 10 league matches.

"We haven't had the rub of the green, but we can't use that as an excuse," added Lowe. "We have to focus on the games coming up, try to get better results and look to move up the table as soon as possible."
