“Two defeats on the trot is not good enough by our standards or the standards we want to aspire to.

“And we certainly don’t want it to slip to three because if you lose another one you’re suddenly looking down the barrel of a gun and you’re at the wrong end of the table,” said Graham.

“We have no-one else to blame we are certainly good enough to be beating these teams.

“We’re disappointed because we should have won the last two games but the fact is we haven’t and we are where we are because we haven’t and we now have to go out and start performing to our potential.

“When we get our finger out and play we look very good and capable of scoring tries and capable of doing a lot of damage.

“The fact is it’s taking us a while to get going and we are letting in soft scores.

“Those are two good sides we have played that are in the top three so you can’t be giving them easy opportunities.

“We missed a penalty in front of the post to win the game against Old Wesley.

“We know we need to get a win and some points on the board. The lads have been working hard and they know we must do better and I believe we will.”

Andy Warwick and Alan O'Connor are available.

Ballynahinch moved up to fifth after last week’s win in Galway and host UCC.
