SALLEY'S SECOND HALF DOUBLE GIVES PORTS THE EDGE

Two second half Adam Salley goals ensured Portadown got the better of Warrenpoint Town at Milltown.
 
The Ports moved in front with just over a quarter-of-an-hour on the clock through Ben Tilney who picked up the ball on the corner of the box before taking a controlling touch and rifling a left-foot finish into the top corner at the near post.
 
Warrenpoint almost levelled after half-an-hour but Ryan Swan's shot from Fra McCaffrey's flick was cleared off the line by Eamon Scannell.
 
But 'Point did equalise on 32 minutes, with Swan going one better this time with a diving header after Kealan Dillon and McCaffrey had worked to create the opening.
 
Alan O'Sullivan came close to levelling early in the second half only to be thwarted by Jacob Carney's legs while, for the Ports, Stephen Teggart's goalbound effort was headed away by Danny Wallace.
 
Portadown regained the advantage on 56 minutes when Sam Warde sent over a corner for Salley to meet at the near post and direct a header beyond Andy Coleman.
 
And Salley doubled his tally eight minutes after that from the spot after Daniel Byrne was penalised - and sent-off - for bringing down Lee Bonis inside the area.
 
The visitors had chances to extend their lead further still late in the game when Paul Finnegan was denied by a goalline clearance while Salley's attempt at bagging his hat-trick goal was thwarted by Coleman.
