Darren Murphy calls for ‘more of the same’ from Dungannon Swifts

Darren Murphy hopes Dungannon Swifts can continue heading in the right direction following a profitable couple of weeks on the pitch.

The basement battlers have pocketed seven points from their last four Premiership outings.

Victories against Coleraine and Glenavon, and last week’s late 3-3 draw with Warrenpoint Town, have boosted the Stangmore Park club’s survival hopes.

Next up is the visit of Glentoran on Saturday, and Murphy has demanded more of the same from his players.

“We have shown a lot of quality and character in the last few games, and the lads have earned their reward,” he said.

“It has given everyone a lift, and I always knew it would come. I have always believed in the players and they are delivering the goods.

“Hopefully we can continue picking up points and climbing away from the bottom of the table.

“Glentoran is going to be another massive test for us. They had a good win against Ballinamallard last week, and I watched them lose out to Portadown – on another day they could have won that game.

“So we know it will be a tough test against a team in the top half of the table. But at the same time it is a game we are looking forward to and confident of getting something out of.”
