CITY LEAPFROG SEASIDERS INTO TOP SPOT

Armagh City moved to the top of the table following a 3-1 victory over morning leaders Bangor at Clandeboye Park.

The home side moved in front after 11 minutes when, following a good build up, the experienced Michael Halliday fired past City keeper Conner Byrne.

Armagh got back on level terms after 27 minutes when Ruairi Duffy converted from the spot after Bangor keeper Mark Anderson had brought down Stefan Lavery and injured himself in the process. After a lengthy stoppage for treatment Anderson was replaced between the sticks by substitute keeper Darren Gibbons.

Then, on 31 minutes, the Eagles edged into the lead when Marc McConnell connected with a Duffy cross to turn the ball past Gibbons.

Bangor pushed hard to get back into the game, coming close when Byrne was forced to tip over Lewis Harrison's effort while David Hume headed narrowly wide from the resultant corner.

At the other end Gibbons was injured whilst performing a superb stop and like Anderson before him had to be substituted. Eoin O'Neill duly came on in his place with Halliday taking up goalkeeping duties for the rest of the game.

The visitors extended their lead five minutes after the break when leading scorer Conor Mullen delivered a well executed free-kick past stand-in keeper Halliday from just outside the box.

It was a first defeat of the campaign for Bangor but they trail City by just a point with two games in hand.
