The visitors stormed into the lead after a quarter-of-an-hour when Michael O'Hehir got on the end of a Jack Clarke cross to smash a half volley past Dean Smyth.

It was 2-0 on 23 minutes when Ultan Lennon converted from the spot after Chris McFall handled an O'Hehir goalbound effort on the line - and was subsequently dismissed by referee Ben McMaster.

Then, four minutes after that, Stefan McKenna latched onto a through ball to take the ball around 'keeper Smyth to extend City's advantage.

The scoring was completed early in the second half when Nedas Macuilaitis pounced on a defensive mistake to slot the ball into the empty net.
