Guillaume Keke struck in the closing moments to earn Ards victory from Warrenpoint Town's Friday night visit to the Bangor Fuels Arena.

Darren Murray opened the scoring for 'Point as early as the third minute  after a Josh Lynch corner reached him on the edge of the box to fire low into the net via a deflection.

Ards might have levelled just after the half-hour mark only for Ben Arthurs' header to be cleared off the line.

But Colin Nixon's side did grab their equaliser on 62 minutes through Jonah Mitchell when he guided the ball home into the bottom corner after the visitors failed to clear.

Kyle Cherry almost made it 2-1 on 80 minutes but his header from a left-wing cross struck the outside of the post.

However, Ards weren't to be denied the points when, on 90 minutes, Keke latched onto a wind assisted clearance to keep his composure and knock the winner past 'keeper Berraat Türker.
