BBC Sport - Ballymena boss David Jeffrey hails hero Kevin Braniff after play-off triumph

Jeffrey hails Braniff 'fairytale story'

Ballymena United boss David Jeffrey says Kevin Braniff's late winner in the club's Europa League play-off win over Glenavon is a "fairy book story".

Braniff came off the bench to score Ballymena's late decisive goal as they edged out Glenavon 2-1 to earn an estimated £200,000 European windfall.

"I said to Brian McLaughlin with 20 minutes to go: 'Let's put on Kevin'. It's a fairy book story that he came on and scored that goal in the way he did."
