POINTS SHARED AFTER LATE SHOWGROUNDS GOAL FLURRY

Newry City fought back from two goals down to earn a share of the spoils from a bottom of the table clash with Knockbreda at The Showgrounds.

All four goals came during a blistering 15 minute spell in the final quarter of the game.

David Fearon opened the scoring for 'Breda on 69 minutes from the spot after Alex Pomeroy had been brought down in the box.

Then, three minutes after that, Pomeroy himself got on the scoresheet when he held off the attentions of a defender to get on the end of Conall Delaney's ball into the box.

Newry's 16-year-old striker, John McGovern, pulled one back three minutes later following a goalmouth scramble after a dangerous ball into the box before, with six minutes to go, substitute Neil Mullen levelled in a similar fashion.
