Knockbreda picked up an important point in their battle to avoid finishing in the bottom two with this scoreless draw at home to Loughgall.

There are very few scoreless draws at Breda Park but this encounter was totally dictated by the weather with a gale blowing straight down the pitch.

Playing with that in the first half the visitors dominated with 'Breda defending well.

And, in a game of two halves, 'Breda then tried to make the most of the wind after the break, coming closest when David Fearon had the ball in the net only for the goal to be ruled out offside.
