Warrenpoint Town boss Stephen McDonnell hailed his players after their game plan worked perfectly at Ballymena United on Saturday.

The Milltown side fought back from a goal down to run out 3-1 winners and pick up vital points in the race for survival at the foot of the table.

“I am delighted,” said McDonnell. “We had a game plan and we are trying to bring in our own system and players.

“We changed things and the lads have taken a lot of information on board over the last two weeks so I am delighted to get the win.

“It is also good to see the work we have put in during training working in a match situation.

“We have worked hard on things and the lads did well today.

“Sean Mackle did very well and I think that is the best I have seen him play for the club, he has led us very well and he took the responsibilty on as a senior player to take the penalty and he got the job done.

“We will take each game as it come and we have Crusaders next - but we will be ready for that.”
