Michael Carvill and Niall Quinn were the men to thank for Linfield as they eventually got their first three points of the league season with a 2-0 victory at Stangmore Park
The win over a Warrenpoint Town team was hardfought as the home side put it up to their more illustrious opponents at times.
Second half strikes from the duo were enough to claim the win for David Jeffrey’s men as they bid to get their season kickstarted.
