NEW Donegal Celtic manager Declan McGreevy insists he is treating Saturday afternoon’s basement battle with Lisburn Distillery as ‘just another game’.
Many fans are labelling the showdown with the Whites as the proverbial six-pointer.
Celtic hold a slender one-point advantage over Tim McCann’s side and both are in danger of becoming detached from the rest of the Premiership.
But McGreevy – who was confirmed as Stephan Small’s successor on Thursday – is refusing to press any panic alarms just yet.
“As I have said to the lads, nobody is relegated in the middle of October,” he said.
“There is still a long way to go and Saturday is just another game with three points on offer.
“We want to go out and put in a good performance and try and get the win. The lads have responded amazingly well in recent weeks.
“We beat Distillery in the County Antrim Shield and that result put some smiles back on the fans’ faces.
“That’s important as we want to get the local community back to Celtic Park and supporting their team again.
“Other teams have loyal fan bases, and that’s what we want here.
“But results and a little bit of success will help achieve that, and we have to perform on the pitch if we want the fans to start coming through the turnstiles again.”
Celtic will give Kevin Keegan and Shane Dolan late fitness checks before Saturday’s game.
Liam Bradley should be available.
