Irish Premiership: Warrenpoint Town 1-0 Ballymena Utd

Daniel Hughes

A second half strike from Daniel Hughes gave Warrenpoint Town a 1-0 victory over Ballymena United at Milltown.

The striker hit the woodwork before Town keeper Jonathan Parr kept out Alan Teggart's shot.

Daniel Hughes rifled in the only goal on 62 minutes while Allan Jenkins headed over for United late on.

Warrenpoint's top-flight status was secured on Tuesday when Championship results ensured they would not face a possible relegation play-off.

It was a frustrating first half for Daniel Hughes, his shot striking a post after seven minutes before he squandered good chances.

Ballymena also created opportunities in an entertaining affair and Jenkins went close with a first-half header while Darren Boyce header over.

Daniel Hughes netted for the 13th time this season with a fine 20-yard finish after good work from Stephen Hughes.
