BIG BASEMENT BATTLE WIN FOR THE PORTS

Portadown collected a huge three points with a narrow victory over Warrenpoint Town in the battle of the bottom two at Shamrock Park.

The visitors enjoyed the best of what early chances were created when skipper Fra McCaffrey had a shot from the edge of the box while, not long after that, Luke Wade Slater headed just over from a corner.

Portadown's best effort perhaps came through Billy Stedman midway through the first half when he got in behind the defence to send the ball just over as it looked destined for the top corner.

'Point came closest to breaking the deadlock when McCaffrey sent an effort against the crossbar on 33 minutes while, for the Ports, Oisin Conaty saw a deflected effort test keeper Stephen McMullan.

However, the Ports found a way through just before the hour through Harry Anderson who ran onto a Stedman pass to send a composed finish beyond McMullan.

'Point might have levelled with around a quarter-of-an-hour remaining when Ray O'Sullivan picked out Alan O'Sullivan but the substitute could only flash a header wide of the target.

Warrenpoint were reduced to ten men with six minutes remaining after Steven Ball collected his second caution of the afternoon but Barry Gray's almost responded with the equaliser not long after that when Jonathan Leddy saw his near post effort well blocked by keeper Jethren Barr.
