TEN-MAN TOBERMORE TOO STRONG FOR EAGLES

Ten-man Tobermore United came from behind twice to defeat Armagh City at Fortwilliam Park.

The visitors took the lead on nine minutes when Edilson Tavares headed home from Ruairi Duffy's corner but it proved to be short lived when Peter Duffin equalised just a minute later.

Tobermore were reduced to ten men early in the second half when new signing Andrew Whiteside was dismissed for collecting two bookings within a couple of minutes of each other.

City regained the lead on 55 minutes when they were awarded a penalty for a push on Shea Campbell who then scored the spot kick.

Tobermore equalised for a second time just after the hour when Aaron Mullan's free kick fell to Duffin who rifled the ball past Devine. Minutes later Duffin was denied a hat trick when he hit the woodwork.

Armagh could have gone in front again after 72 minutes but Tavares' shot was blocked by keeper Lukasz Bednarz.

Then, on 74 minutes, Tobermore took the lead for the first time through Tiarnan Flanagan. With three minutes left an excellent free kick from Jordan Thompson made it four for the home side.
