McNALLY HEADER SECURES WIN FOR TEN MAN PORTS

A Paddy McNally goal in the closing moments of the game ensured leaders Portadown left The Dub with all three points against the PSNI.

The only goal of the game came on 87 minutes when George Tipton delivered a corner from the right for McNally to rise at the far post and send a downward header into the opposite corner.

It was a hard fought victory for the Ports who had played for an hour with ten men following Christopher Crane's first half dismissal for a reckless challenge on Nathan O'Neill.
