Kris Lindsay's early introduction to Irish League management has been mapped out by ever-improving form.
Having started with back-to-back Danske Bank Premiership defeats, Lindsay's Swifts now stand with cup wins either side of a first league point.
Lindsay highlighted the progress made following last weekend's 1-1 draw away to Ballymena United.
The Swifts followed that up on Tuesday with Mid-Ulster Senior Cup quarter-final success.
Now Lindsay and his team can focus on facing Linfield at Stangmore Park on Saturday in the Danske Bank Premiership.
