The Opponents

Dundela made it two wins from two at the weekend with a three-goal defeat of Warrenpoint Town at Milltown. The visitors moved in front just before the half-hour mark when, following a good move down the left, William Faulkner sent a confident finish past keeper Conor Mitchell. It was a lead the Duns sat on until the 83rd minute when substitute Rhys Annett doubled up … and then added a third for Niall Currie’s side just two minutes after that!

The Comrades

At the weekend, the Comrades swept to victory over Dergview at Darragh Park thanks to three second half goals. Scoreless at the break, the home side were reduced to ten men on the stroke of half-time when Bobby Deane was dismissed for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity. The visitors made their numerical advantage count just after the hour when Ian Fletcher opened the scoring before, on 77 minutes, Liam Hassin made it 2-0 on the counterattack. Northern Ireland U21 international Calvin McCurry then completed the scoring in stoppage time.

Last Time Out

The last time these two sides met in the last game of the 21/22 campaign, Ballyclare Comrades ended their season on a high note with victory over Dundela at Dixon Park. Kyle Beggs opened the scoring for Ballyclare with a great finish midway through the first half albeit somewhat against the run of play. And they doubled their advantage on 65 minutes when Caiolan Brennan forced the ball over the line after Adam Gray’s initial effort fell into his path. Dundela pulled one back soon after that, however, when the unfortunate Adam McCart headed into his own net whilst attempting to clear a cross from the left.
