Ballymena United will travel to Carrick Rangers in the Danske Bank Premiership on Friday night looking to get back on track after Saturday’s 4-3 defeat to Ards.

Carrick will be a tough test for David Jeffrey’s men but he is sure his players will deliver.

“Everything is set up here for the club to move forward. The club have backed me 100 percent and have given me what I have wanted from the small things to the big things.

“The players are well looked after but the reality is they have got to do it on the pitch.

“They have got to do it week in, week out on the pitch. That is the challenge and that is learning for me as I have to insure there is a level of consistency that brings us results every week.

“Not sometimes this week and then sometimes another week. It will be a journey and we are only four games into it.

“The errors against Ards were so simple. Stop a cross and if the cross comes in - mark your man.

“And that is not berating the players, or having a go at them, or criticising them in public. I am learning about them and they are learning about me. And I am learning all the time what we have to do to make them better. It is about us going forward together and learning together,” he added.
