Knockbreda started well, moving into the lead after a quarter-of-an-hour when, following a flowing move, the ball was played across the visitors box with Mark Cooling firing low into the net from 12 yards.

In the second half Institute had the majority of the game, and it was no real surprise that they equalised through Stephen O'Donnell, in the 82nd minute when he fired past Ryan McBride from just outside the box.

'Breda might have claimed all three points late in the game when Dylan Wilson found himself through on goal but Institute 'keeper Martin Gallagher did well to make a great save
