NEWRY TAKE ANOTHER STEP TOWARDS TITLE

Newry City remain four points clear in the Lough 41 Championship after coming from behind to claim a point in this top of the table clash away to Annagh United.

Darren Mullen's side might have moved in front as early as the fourth minute when Stephen Moan blasted over from six yards out while, not long after that, Daniel Hughes had a go with a lob from around 30 yards.

City threatened again later in the first half through Lorcan Forde but his shot was well saved by Eoin Hughes' dive to the right.

Annagh's best chance of the scoreless opening period came courtesy of Ross Hunter's blocked effort from the edge of the box.

However, Ciaran McGurgan's men did go in front early in the second half when Craig Taylor's shot from outside the box took a ricochet off a defender past Steven Maguire, who had earlier blocked a Peter Duffin effort with his right foot.

Buoyed by this, Annagh pushed for a second goal with Stephen Murray being denied by a post before Hunter fired just over from a Taylor throw followed by a Duffin attempt from a Murray cross which was just a little too high.

But it was to ultimately end honours end when, with around a quarter-of-an-hour to go, Odhran Casey levelled after firing through a sea of bodies from the edge of the box.
