SKY BLUES KEEP CLEAN SHEET ON THE ROAD

Two second half goals saw Ballymena United sweep to victory over Dungannon Swifts on the newly laid surface at Stangmore Park.

A quiet first half produced few efforts of note, but that all changed six minutes after the interval when David McDaid won possession from Dean Curry who, in turn, laid the ball off for Joshua Kelly to run at goal and slot his finish between Declan Dunne's legs.

McDaid almost made it 2-0 soon after with a long run towards goal but substitute Cahal McGinty did enough to deal with the danger while, for the Swifts, Ben Gallagher failed to adequately test Sean O'Neill from inside the area.

Ballymena's second came with a minute of normal time remaining thanks to Stephen McCullough's free-kick from the right which found Conor Keeley at the back post which he met with a volley from close range.
