Glenn Ferguson hopes Ballymena United can continue building momentum following an impressive couple of weeks for the Showgrounds club.

A spirited 1-1 draw with Carrick Rangers was followed by a League Cup win over Moyola Park.

But it is the two Premiership victories over Glentoran (3-1) and Cliftonville (6-1) that have revived optimism on Warden Street.

And ahead of Saturday’s visit of Ballinamallard United to the Showgrounds, Ferguson has demanded ‘more of the same’ as the Sky Blues attempt to climb the table.

“Those two league wins were very important,” he said.

“There are so many positives to take out of those two games, and we have to try and carry on that form into the fixtures ahead.

“We won’t be getting too carried away because we know things can change so quickly in this league.

“You can win two on the bounce but you can also lose a couple, so we are under no illusions.

“The pleasing thing about the Glentoran and Cliftonville wins is that we have helped our goal difference.

“But at the same time, you only get three points whether you win 1-0 or 6-1.”

Ballinamallard sit second bottom in the Premiership, three points behind Ballymena who are ninth.

“Ballinamallard will be another difficult test for us, but we want to try and make home advantage count and get the win,” Ferguson added.
