Tomas Cosgrove feels Larne are building momentum at a key time

Tomas Cosgrove feels Larne are hitting form at the right time as the season heads towards the business end of things.

The Inver Park outfit are unbeaten in their last three games after an indifferent run out form since the turn of the year when they only won four games over January, February and March.

They entertain Warrenpoint Town tonight with Europe very much on their minds.

They are currently six points off an automatic European place and Cosgrove said the goal is to secure one of the spots on offer.

“The belief has always been there, and we haven’t been playing bad, it’s just the odd mistake,” the full back told the club website.

“That happens in football, you just have to ride out the storm.

“We’ve done that and hopefully we can come away with European football come the end of the season.

“I’d say we’ll win more than we’ll lose now in these final games because we are coming into a bit of momentum.

“The way we play it suits us when a team comes out against us and tries to take us on.”

Andy Waterworth’s late leveller meant Larne had to settle for a share of the spoils last Saturday.

Whilst Cosgrove was happy with the performance, he was disappointed to not come away with all three points especially after dominating large chunks of the game against the league leaders.

“Yeah we were happy with the performance against Linfield, I think it has been good over the last couple of weeks,” he said.

“It’s disappointing though we didn’t pick up all three points though as I think we restricted them to very little.

“Unfortunately that’s what is happening at the minute, we conceded a goal which we shouldn’t have conceded.

“We didn’t take our chances at the other end either so we had to settle for a draw.

“I felt we dominated the whole game and didn’t really feel under pressure, but if you don’t take your chances and concede at the back you’re not going to pick up three points.

“We’ll take it on the chin and push on now until the end of the season.

“We’re starting to get a bit of momentum again and hopefully we can continue with it.”
