Chris McElroy grabbed a late, late winner for Annagh United as Paul Matchett's side carried on where they'd left off following their midweek League Cup exploits.

Padraig Judge fired United into the lead after just six minutes from close range after the 'Breda defence failed to clear their lines.

To their credit, the east Belfast side responded well with David McMaster proving a particular threat but they found Eoin Hughes in the Annagh goal difficult to beat.

The equaliser arrived three minutes after the break courtesy of Stephen Cockcroft after he collected the ball inside the box to fire a low, left-foot effort into the net.

'Breda were reduced to ten men with a couple of minutes remaining after David Johnston had collected his second booking of the game.

And Annagh punished Raymond Bell's side further in stoppage time when McElroy knocked home the winner.
