Glenn Ferguson hoping for rousing finish to season

Ballymena United boss Glenn Ferguson has demanded a rousing finish from his players as they look to secure seventh spot in the table.

A late burst of form has seen the Sky Blues leapfrog derby rivals Coleraine in the Danske Bank Premiership.

It leaves them at the head of Section B in the table with just two games remaining.

And Ferguson – whose side has won its last four games – has called for more of the same in the games against Ballinamallard United (on Saturday) and Dungannon Swifts (April 25).

“It would have been easy for our season to peter out after we crashed out of the Irish Cup,” Ferguson said.

“But I wanted a response after that disappointment, and I wanted the players to finish the season strongly.

“They have responded and we have been in great form recently, but we want to continue that in our remaining two games.

“You want to finish as high as you can and seventh is our target. We are there now but we need to push on.”
