GAWNE DOUBLE LEAVES 'POINT HANGING

Warrenpoint Town's top flight survival hangs by a thread following defeat by Carrick Rangers at Milltown.

Barry Gray's are now nine points adrift of even a play-off spot with only three games remaining while, for Rangers, it was important win as they look likely to keep their Premiership place for another season.

The game was scoreless aside from a flurry of goals either side of the break.

'Point broke the deadlock on 41 minutes through Luke Wade Slater who converted from close range after getting ahead of Reece Glendinning to meet Steven Ball's delivery from wide on the left.

However, Carrick levelled moments from the break after Alex Gawne managed to get behind the home defence onto a Glendinning ball over the top and confidently slot past Conor Mitchell.

Then, nine minutes into the second half, Gawne doubled his tally for the afternoon - and clinched the win for the visitors - when he touched the ball home at the right post after Emmett McGuckin had done well to knock the ball across the area.
