Warrenpoint won't be taking foot off pedal after win, insists Murray

Warrenpoint Town 3 Dungannon Swifts 0

By Gareth McCullough

TJ Murray says he and his Warrenpoint Town team-mates won't be easing off between now and the end of the season as they look to guarantee their Premiership status following Saturday's home win over Dungannon Swifts.

Goals from Lorcan Forde, Jordan Dane and a brilliant third from Murray himself moved the 'Point - under interim boss Stephen McDonnell - 10 clear of second bottom Carrick Rangers with five games left to play.

A victory away to Ards tomorrow would ensure McDonnell has guided his troops to safety having already made it two wins from his first three games.

"Every game from now is important. Every game from now until the end of the season means everything to us. We've set up today not wanting to get beaten and we played some nice football against Dungannon, one of the best footballing sides in the league. I think we stood up to them and we passed then about the pitch as well," says Murray.

"For Tuesday, we're going into the game with confidence. We tried our best against the Crues to keep looking after the ball and today we got our rewards. So we're looking to build on this performance and bring it into Tuesday night against Ards."
