NEWRY PICK UP FIRST HOME WIN
Newry City claimed their first home win of the campaign with a single goal defeat of Dungannon Swifts.
Both sides had their chances in a scoreless first half with Joe McCready firing straight at keeper Steven Maguire early on while Newry could point to a couple of Daniel Hughes efforts.
The Swifts also came close when Ben Cushnie saw a header cleared off the line, with Maguire also denying McCready later in the half.
It was a similar pattern after the break with Hughes testing Declan Dunne twice and Maguire dealing with another McCready effort.
The deadlock was broken just after the hour when James Teelan cut the ball back from the right for Lorcan Forde to direct his finish beyond Dunne from the edge of the six-yard box.
Dungannon chased the equaliser as time ticked down, but James Convie saw his effort palmed away while Michael O'Connor fired the wrong side of an upright.
