Dundela fought back from two goals down to defeat near neighbours HW Welders in the derby at Wilgar Park.

The Welders raced into an early lead with the opening goal after just five minutes when Dylan Davidson delivered a superbly struck curling free-kick from around 30 yards into the top right corner beyond Ryan McBride.

Then, just six minutes after that, Matthew Ferguson made it 2-0 after running onto a ball through the home defence to slot past McBride as he came off his line.

Dundela were presented with a great opportunity to pull one back just after the half-hour mark but Tiarnan McNicholl was unable to convert from the spot.

However David McMaster did reduce the deficit three minutes from the break with a right-footed free-kick on the edge of the area which crept past Ryan Miskelly at the near post.

And it was all square just moments later when a ball into the area was poked home by Christopher Watts as Adam Wilson and Adam Wright attempted to clear.

The Duns sealed the win with around a quarter-of-an-hour to go when McNicholl redeemed for his penalty miss with a powerful near post strike past Miskelly ... but they finished the game with ten men when Davidson was dismissed towards the end for violent conduct.
