A moment of quality saw 'Breda take the lead on 39 minutes when full back Karl Hamill collected the ball on the edge of the away box, ghosted past two defenders and, from a very tight angle, fired a low shot into the net off the far post.

Knockbreda looked set to take that lead into the second half but conceded an easy equaliser on the stroke of half-time when, looking to mount a dangerous counter attack, they gave the ball away in their own half leading to a corner. From this Welders centre back Dan McMurray rose highest at the far post to head the ball down and into the net.

The second continued in the same vein with a draw looking likely but, out of context with the overall game, the visitors took all three points when forward Lukasz Gwiazda won a chase for the ball down the left, cut inside and from the 18 yard line fired a curling high shot into the top corner.
