Neil Lamont (88)


Neil Lamont grabbed Tobermore's winner with a couple of minutes remaining (Picture:


In a quiet first half, both sides were restricted to little more than a succession of limited efforts.

Neil Lamont had Tobermore's best chance when he found himself unmarked in front of goal but failed to make the chance count while, for the Swifts, Darren Gallagher turned an effort onto the outside of an upright.

It was a pattern that followed into the second half although United might have moved in front with a quarter-of-an-hour remaining when Peter Duffin was brought down inside the box. However Gary Keane could only look on as his spot-kick was well saved by 'keeper Michael Magill.

However, Tobermore did find the net with a couple of minutes remaining when Neil Lamont squeezed a low effort beyond Magill following a period of pressure.

And Eoin Gillan might have added a second in the closing moments only to direct a header just the wrong side of the left post.
