Levi Ives says Cliftonville are determined to put their early-season inconsistencies behind them, starting with three points against Warrenpoint Town tomorrow.
Just five weeks have passed since the Reds contrived to turn victory into defeat during an injury-time horror-show against the same opponents and, though the County Down side have not tasted any Danske Bank Premiership defeats since then, Ives believes the Reds are primed to start giving a better account of themselves.
“Warrenpoint have already taken three points off us this season – we have to make sure it doesn’t happen again and start to find a run of form,” says the 21-year-old.
“We need to to kick on because in the first 10 games we haven’t done much, but I think it will click soon and we will push on from there.”
