Irish Premiership: Ballinamallard defeat Portadown 1-0

Ballinamallard United has beaten Portadown 1-0 - despite being a man down on Friday.

Adam Lecky struck the 36th-minute winner for Ballinamallard just five minutes after Ross Taheny had been sent off for a foul on the edge of the box.

Ballinamallard manager Gavin Dykes spoke of his delight at the result.

"I said at half-time we needed the biggest 45 minutes of our lives to get anything out of the game and the lads showed great hunger and character," he told the BBC.
