BBC Sport - Irish Premiership: Ports cruise to win over Carrick

Ports cruise to win over Carrick

Portadown end a run of three straight Premiership defeats by easing to a 4-0 victory over fellow strugglers Carrick Rangers.

Alan Byrne netted on his Ports debut while Stephen Hughes, Aaron Haire and Robert Garrett were also on target at Shamrock Park.

Haire was injured in scoring his goal and was stretchered off, with the club later confirming he suffered a cut to the head and will make a full recovery.

Ports boss Pat McGibbon said it was deserved victory while Carrick manager Kieran Harding reflected on his side's disappointing display.
