Tim McCann insists he won’t walk away from the relegation scrap Lisburn Distillery are currently embroiled in.
McCann has endured a baptism of fire since taking over the reins of the Whites last summer.
Two wins from 22 fixtures has left the New Grosvenor club rooted to the bottom of the Irish Premiership table.
The past seven days alone have tested the very sanity of embattled boss McCann.
On Boxing Day they conceded an injury time equaliser against Donegal Celtic, while on Saturday they squandered a 3-0 lead against Ballymena United to only emerge with a point.
McCann is hoping 2013 brings a drastic reversal in fortunes, starting with Tuesday’s clash with Ballinamallard United at New Grosvenor.
“I want to be a success at Distillery. This is the job I want to do and I am enjoying it. Distillery is a good club with good people, and the Board are behind me. We just need to get this season under our belts and try and survive in the Premiership.
“I have seen enough in the players to encourage me, and we just need a little rub of the green to get us kick-started. If I didn’t see any response or improvement from the players then I would probably have to concede defeat.
“There will be some fans who will be calling for my head, but this is a massive challenge that any manager would find testing.
“We have shipped seven goals in two games against Ballinamallard this season - including five in the last game at our ground in the second game of the season,” McCann said. So we certainly owe them one and hopefully we can beat them on Tuesday.”
