Portadown boss Ronnie McFall has urged his players to continue building momentum following their recent upturn in fortunes.

The Ports made it three games unbeaten in the Premiership with last week’s 2-0 win over Linfield.

It saw McFall’s side pick up seven points from a possible nine, and hinted that the Shamrock Park club has rediscovered some form following a disappointing start to the season.

Prior to their recent mini-revival the Ports had lost their previous four league outings – a miserable run that threatened to detach them from the top six.

But after finally showing glimpses of form, McFall is confident his side can start climbing the table.

“We just want to continue building momentum and push on from the last three league games,” McFall said.

“I thought in previous matches we played that we were on the wrong end of the fine margins.

“We played well for parts of games and didn’t take our chances.

“We have been more like ourselves. We have shown character, especially last week against Linfield.”

Next up is Saturday’s clash with basement club Warrenpoint Town – a side the Ports have beaten just once in four previous league meetings.

“They are scrapping for their lives at the bottom and we have never had it easy against them,” McFall added.

“People talk about you having certain bogey teams, but I don’t believe in that. If you are good enough you will win.”
