JEFFREY DEMANDS PERFECT TEN
BALLYMENA United boss David Jeffrey has warned his players they’ll have to be at their best to make it 10 wins on the bounce.
The Braidmen made history last week when they became the first Ballymena side ever to win nine straight games in all competitions in the 90-year history of the club.
That 2-1 win over Linfield eased United – who are now unbeaten in 14 games dating back to September – above David Healy’s Blues at the top of the league table.
But while the Sky Blues are on a roll, Jeffrey suspects the tests are only going to get tougher, starting with today’s tricky trip to Warrenpoint Town who are unbeaten in their last five.
“The players have written themselves into the history books with nine wins in a row, but it’s only December and we haven’t won anything,” he said.
“We have to take it one game at a time and our full focus now is on Warrenpoint who have been producing some very impressive performances.
“They fear no-one and play really good stuff, so we know we’re going to have to be at our best to get anything from the game.”
Ballymena are still without first choice goalkeeper Ross Glendinning, wing-back Andy Mcgrory, defender Scot Whiteside and midfield pair Willie Faulkner and Shane Mcginty.
