COLERAINE manager Rodney McAree is hoping for yet another top draw performance from his side as they prepare for the trip to Warrenpoint this weekend.

The Bannsiders have enjoyed a mixed bag against Warrenpoint Town so far this campaign as they registered a 3-0 win on the opening day of the season but were narrowly defeated by the same opposition a few weeks ago.

Darren McCauley scored for the Stripes in the previous meeting between the sides in November, however, McAree is hoping for a change in fortune this time around.

Speaking to Chronicle Sport, the Coleraine boss said: “We will be hoping to reverse the last fixture as we suffered a 2-1 defeat at Milltown earlier in the season.

“They are a good side and they are playing some good football under Stephen McDonald and we know that it will not be an easy place to go.

“We have had two big shifts already this week already from the boys and we will be asking for another big one on Saturday before facing Cliftonville on New Year's Day.

“If we go to Warrenpoint and pick up three points then we will not have had a bad run over the Christmas period so far.

Coleraine look to have turned a corner as McAree's men are now unbeaten in two games after a recent win over Dungannon Swifts and a heroic performance on Boxing Day. Having earned four points from a possible six in their last two games, the Stripes will be hoping to extend their unbeaten tally this weekend.
