DERGVIEW CLAIM VITAL VICTORY TO LEAPFROG PSNI

Dergview pocketed all three points from this bottom of the table clash at Darragh Park to leapfrog PSNI out of the danger zone.

Although being on the back foot for much of the opening period Dergview moved in front on 26 minutes when player/manager Ivan Sproule provided the perfect long pass to Philip Wallace who raced past the PSNI defence from the half way line and powered the ball home.

The PSNI levelled four minutes before half-time. Dylan Wilson crossed the ball to Tony Tumelty who, in turn, fired an effort from the edge of the six-yard box through the static home defence into the bottom corner.

However, Dergview regained the advantage almost immediately in similar circumstances when Andrew Sproule found the net.

Dergview who came out after the break and firmly stamped their authority on the game with only some poor finishing preventing them from extending their lead.
