Dixie and Swifts are staring at must wins; JJB SPORTS PREMIERSHIP D'gannon v Glenavon Stangmore Pk, 3pm.

NEW Dungannon Swifts boss Dixie Robinson believes the league's basement club faces "six cup finals" in its bid to ease away from relegation trouble.

The Stangmore Park club, who axed John Cunningham as manager on Monday, lie four points adrift at the foot of the JJB Premiership ahead of today's home clash with third-bottom Glenavon.

"We are facing must win games now," said Robinson, who has been appointed to the end of the campaign.

"We are four points adrift at the bottom and we have to register wins and points as soon as possible.

"It's crucial we hit the ground running against Glenavon who have shown a lot of desire and hunger under Marty Quinn.

"I have had a good chat with the players and I have belief in the quality we have at the club, but our attitude must be spot on against Glenavon."

Dungannon, who have taken just two points from their last seven games, last won in the league at Ballymena United (2-1) on January 27.
