Darren Gallagher (50)
Kevin Lynch (65)



Sport & Leisure Swifts kept their hopes of avoiding the drop alive with a two-goal defeat of Portstewart at Mullaghacall.

Both goals came after the break, with Darren Gallagher opening the scoring on 50 minutes before Kevin Lynch doubled up just after the hour.

Pat McAllister's side are still three points adrift at the foot of the table and know they must beat Lisburn Distillery on Saturday whilst hoping Armagh City or Dollingstown lose to Annagh United and Newington respectively.

Portstewart: Findlay, Forgrave, Vauls, Peden, Watt, Law, Elder, Doherty, Hamilton, Lindsay, Barr subs Taylor (not used), Henry (replaced Lindsay 77), Gillan (not used), Gawne (replaced Forgrave 79), Quigg (replaced Hamilton 61)

Sport & Leisure Swifts: Magill, T. Larkin, P. Lynch, P. McKissock, Carland, Shannon, McAlorum, Heatley, C. McKissock, Gallagher, K. Lynch subs McGrogan (not used), S. McCann (replaced Carland 30), Johnston (not used), McManus (replaced Heatley 74)

Referee: Shane McGonigle
