Ballianamallard players have given me an answer, says Gavin Dykes

Ballinamallard United 1-1 Warrenpoint Town

By Gareth Cauldwell

Ballinamallard United manager Gavin Dykes was pleased with the response from his players as they ended a run of five successive defeats with a draw at home to Warrenpoint Town.

It had looked as if the Mallards were set to take all three points after Shane McGinty had fired the bottom-placed club in front early in the second half.

However, the dismissal of Richard Clarke in the 71st minute for a second booking saw the home side come under pressure and Darren Murray ensured that Warrenpoint would return home with a share of the spoils with a well-finished equaliser.

"I questioned people's attitudes last week and in fairness, they showed me a bit of bottle tonight," said Dykes.

"I thought we started the second half very well for a change and we got a goal and could have had another one but Clarkey has made a mistake, he has apologised to us in there, and I've no complaints about it. That though swings momentum their way.

"We then got done from a set play but tonight we showed a wee bit of bottle and we dug in the last 10 minutes and that might be a big point come the end of the season."

Warrenpoint manager Matthew Tipton saw his side maintain their seven-point gap over Ballinamallard but he felt that they could have won the game.

"I thought we deserved to win. I felt we had the majority of the play but we just didn't capitalise on the chances we had in the first half," he said.

BALLINAMALLARD: Brush, McConnell, McLaughlin, Smyth, McCann, Leddy (Burns, 15 mins), Clarke, McGinty, Owens (McCartney, 84 mins), McIlwaine (Taheny, 71 mins), Hutchinson 7.

WARRENPOINT: Turker, Foster, Moan, Dane (Roohi, 67 mins), Mackle (Forde, 72 mins), M Murray, D Murray, Davidson, TJ Murray, Wallace, McGrandles.

Referee: Jamie Robinson

Man of the match: Shane McGinty

Match rating: 6/10
