There was little to choose between the teams in the first half with keepers John Connolly and Paddy Flood only called into action on one occasion each.

The game was turned on its head in a five minute spell just after the hour mark when Johnny McSorley scored two in as many minutes for the home side and this was followed minutes later when recent signing Thai Blevins open his account for the club to add a third.

The shocked visitors did however manage to pull one back just before the end when Adam Gray found the net in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
