Newry will hope to bounce back from Friday night’s 2-0 defeat to Institute this evening when they take on Warrenpoint Town in the quarter final of the Mid Ulster Cup at the Showgrounds, kicking off at 7:45pm.
City defender Darren King spoke of the importance of picking up a positive result in the local derby.
“We need to get the Institute game out of our system as we let ourselves and the supporters down on Friday night with an uncharacteristic home performance. Secondly, to ensure we progress in the cup and try to build up some momentum again. And finally to get a result in order to give the squad, coaching staff and supporters a lift as you always want to be on top in a local derby,” said King.
