Tipton is calling on Town to start climbing the table

By Graham Luney

It may be only five games into the Danske Bank Premiership season but Warrenpoint Town boss Matthew Tipton has urged his players to raise their game so they are not sucked into a basement battle.

The men from Milltown are second from bottom along with Ards, two points ahead of Ballinamallard United.

Town lost 2-0 at Glentoran last weekend and their misery was complete when striker Darren Murray saw red.

Tipton hopes the Premiership new boys can enjoy more luck at home to Ballymena United on Saturday.

"I would be more angry if we had went to The Oval and not created anything," said Tipton.

"That would have filled me with worry. But we created a bag of chances, so we now have to make sure we start putting them away. I know it's still early in the season but we don't want to be dragged down and struggle at the bottom of the table.

"When you are on top, you have to win games of football. But that match is now gone. We've now got to focus on our next game against Ballymena, it's one we have got to win."
