MALLARDS KEEP UP TITLE CHALLENGE
Ballinamallard United travelled to Belfast to beat Queen's University at The Dub to maintain their title push.
Ryan Campbell and Ryan O'Reilly created chances early on before, midway through the first half, Campbell opened the scoring when he ran onto a perfect through ball from Jason McCartney to slot home first time.
Despite Queen's enjoying a brief purple patch towards the end of the first half there were no further goals until the 79th minute when Matthew Smyth settled the game in favour of the Mallards with a header from Christopher Kelly's cross.
