WILSON GLANCES SWIFTS TO STANGMORE POINTS

A Douglas Wilson goal midway through the first half was enough for Dungannon Swifts to beat Ballymena United at Stangmore Park.

The win sees Kris Lindsay's side leapfrog the out of sorts Sky Blues into ninth spot in the table and puts them 12 points ahead of the two sides at the foot of the standings.

Wilson bagged what proved to be the only goal of the game after 23 minutes when, from a Mark Patton free-kick, he glanced the ball past keeper Ross Glendinning.

United attempted to level almost immediately through Adam Lecky but his low shot went just wide.

The Swifts looked to double their advantage in the latter stages of the first half when Daniel Hughes saw an effort blocked while Shane McGinty was denied by a last minute tackle.

The visitors came storming out of the blocks after the break with Kenneth Kane being thwarted by a great save from Sam Johnston before Scot Whiteside headed the resulted corner wide.

At the other end Glendinning produced a great diving save to push away a Patton effort, followed moments later by another stop to hold onto a Ryan Waide header from a McGinty cross.

Ballymena perhaps came closest to salvaging something from the game later in the second half when James Knowles' inswinging corner was headed off the line by Dylan King.
