Oran Kearney: We can’t dwell on results

Oran Kearney insists there is no time for wallowing in self pity as Coleraine look to inject some impetus into their season.

The Bannsiders currently sit second bottom in the Danske Bank Premiership following a disappointing start to the new campaign.

An opening day draw with Ballinamallard United has been followed by successive defeats to Institute and Linfield respectively.

It may be early days as far as the new season is concerned, but Kearney craves that first win which he hopes will kick-start the club’s assault up the table.

“We have Warrenpoint Town next, and we have to pick ourselves up,” Kearney said.

“It has been a difficult start to the season, with losing the likes of Davy McDaid not helping matters. But we move on.

“You always hope that first win will provide the launch pad for better things. Saturday offers us another chance to get up and running.”

Meanwhile, Warrenpoint boss Barry Gray is under no illusions as to the importance of Saturday’s basement battle.

“I wouldn’t say it is a must-win game, but we know it is very important,” Gray said.

“We want to try and get above Coleraine in the table and get some points on the board. Hopefully we can rediscover some form on Saturday. I finally have two strikers available so that is a big bonus.”
