Confident: Warrenpoint skipper John Boyle faces Linfield

Warrenpoint Town skipper John Boyle is confident his side can burst Linfield's bubble tomorrow.

The Co Down side are in sparkling form going into their titanic clash with the Premiership leaders at Milltown.

Linfield have shot to the top of the league but top flight new boys Town have eased their relegation fears by recording three wins on the spin.

Victories over Dungannon Swifts, Ards and Ballinamallard United have put a spring in the step of Barry Gray's side and Linfield can expect a rough ride when they arrive for the earlier kick-off time of 1.30pm due to floodlight concerns.

Town were stung by their 5-1 defeat at Windsor Park in November and are hungry to put on a more competent show on their own patch.

"We have won four of our last five matches so we want to keep that form going," said Boyle.

"The Linfield game is a great occasion for the club and we want to perform well against a side with such a big fanbase and proud history of winning trophies.

"We can't match Linfield in terms of history but I believe we have nothing to fear on the pitch.

"We let ourselves down a bit in the last game at Windsor and it would be nice to put that right.

"In fact since that heavy defeat at Windsor things have really picked up for us so maybe it was a catalyst for us to get our act together and start playing the way we have to. We are aware of Linfield's strengths but in front of a home crowd we can cause them problems."

Boyle puts Town's revival down to increased confidence in the camp. We have got the rub of the green you sometimes need and when you win matches it gives you great confidence," he added.

* Dungannon Swifts have handed Jamie Tomelty an 18- month contract.

The former Coleraine winger returns to the Swifts after a spell at Coagh United.

Ballymena United striker Gary Liggett has also moved to the Swifts in a two-and-a-half year deal.
