KNOCKBREDA FACE PLAY-OFF TEST
Knockbreda lost away to Institute at the Brandywell but live to fight another day after securing a play-off spot against the PIL runners-up.
'Breda knew a point would secure their immediate safety and condemn Queen's University to the drop but fell behind after just 13 minutes when Gareth Brown headed home Cormac Burke's corner.
That was the only goal of the game until the 90th minute when, as news filtered through that Queen's were losing at home to Ards, Stephen Garrett levelled direct from a corner.
The visitors thought they had secured the point they required but were stung late into stoppage time through Caolan McLaughlin's close range header that handed 'Stute victory.
'Breda now face one of four PIL teams in a promotion/relegation play-off, with Bangor currently in the runners-up position going into the final two games of the season.
