WHITEY Anderson has described Friday’s Danske Bank Premiership showdown with Lisburn Distillery as a “massive six-pointer”.
The Mallards can boast a hefty 16-point advantage over the Whites following an impressive start to the season.
Anderson’s players have defied the critics to sit third in the table as we kick-off November.
But for the man in charge, survival remains the club’s top priority this season.
“People thought we would be down near the bottom fighting for our lives, but we have managed to pick up some vital points so far,” Anderson said.
“But I still view Friday’s game with Distillery as a six-pointer. We are desperate to win as it will distance ourselves even further from the bottom teams in the table.
“Distillery find themselves bottom, but they are a better team than the table suggests.
“They have players who can hurt you, like Michael Halliday and Gary Liggett, so we are under no illusions doing into this fixture.”
