Stephen Moan grabbed the only goal of the game as Newry City defeated Queen's University at The Showgrounds.

The 29-year-old struck on 14 minutes to help Darren Mullen's side take advantage of Ards' unexpected home defeat to bottom of the table Knockbreda to move back into fifth spot.

Newry had to play the second half with ten men following Mark Hughes' dismissal just before the break after collecting two yellow cards for unsporting behaviour.
