Portadown swept to a three-goal victory over Dungannon Swifts at Stangmore Park to climb out of the bottom two.
Despite the final outcome, it was the Swifts that started brighter with efforts from Rhyss Campbell, Daniel Hughes and Kris Lowe all testing the visitors defence.
However, as the first half progressed, Portadown came into the game more. Adam Salley saw a shot blocked, and Stephen Teggart fired over from just outside the box.
The Ports moved in front in first half stoppage time when Teggart went one better with an inswinging corner that bypassed everyone to end up in the back of the net.
It was 2-0 just four minutes into the second half after Adam McCallum stabbed the ball past Sam Johnston following a bit of a scramble for the loose ball from Luke Wilson's headed effort against the crossbar.
Dungannon had a chance to pull a goal back around the hour mark after Campbell had been brought down inside the box but, from the resultant spot-kick, Ports keeper Ben Pierce did well to save from Michael Carvill.
And Kris Lindsay's side came close again a few minutes after that when Daniel Hughes tested Pierce with a free-kick from the left but the ball was touched onto the bar.
But Portadown made sure of the points five minutes from time when Barney McKeown knocked home number three with a low left-foot drive after Salley, Teggart and Lee Bonis had combined to create the opening.
