BANBRIDGE EDGE CLOSER TO MAKING TOP SIX SPLIT

Banbridge Town inched a little closer to securing a top six spot with this point at home to Moyola Park.

Benjamin Agnew came closest to breaking the first half deadlock for the visitors only to fire wide when well placed, while Banbridge responded through Ryan Moffatt but his finish from a Stuart Thompson cross went over.

James Wilson then twice found himself inside the Moyola box but, on both occasions, his endeavours were thwarted.

The visitors started brightly after the break with Agnew again finding himself in good position but again put the ball the wrong side of the target.

At the other end Stephen Teggart found Neil Clydesdale but the midfielder failed to trouble Marcin Farniok from an acute angle.

But the deadlock was eventually broken on 78 minutes when Greene headed home from substitute Michael Allison's corner to edge Banbridge in front going into the closing stages.

However, with just three minutes remaining, Stuart Forrest levelled for Moyola with a drilled finish following a defensive mistake.
