McMurray condemns Linfield to ANOTHER defeat as Ballymena stage second-half come-back

Ballymena United 2-1 Linfield

By Gareth Hanna

Johnny McMurray struck the telling blow to condemn Linfield to their fourth defeat in six Premiership matches on Friday evening.

The forward netted a sepctacular long range lob on the hour-mark to complete an early second-half come-back and 2-1 win for the out-of-form Ballymena United.

The goal secured only United's second win in their last seven league outings to send them into seventh in the table. Linfield, however, are 11 points off leaders Coleraine having played the same number of matches. The Blues are in fourth behind Glenavon and Crusaders.

It had looked like it might be another long night for the Sky Blues at the Showgrounds when Robbie Garrett gave Linfield a fourth minute lead, sending a low shot into the bottom corner.

However, two fine long-range hits turned the match on its head within 15 minutes of half-time.

First Conor McCloskey sent a 30 yard free-kick into the top corner, then McMurray sent home his first league goal of the season, having only recently returned from injury.

Linfield's night went from bad to worse when Garrett was sent off for a second yellow on 87 minutes.

On Saturday, Carrick Rangers host Warrenpoint Town and Ballinamallard United visit Cliftonville.
