The home side dominated possession in the first half but despite the possession they caused no real threat to the Welder’s goal.

Their first shot on target didn’t arrive until the half hour mark when Sam Johnston parried away a long range Sean Mallon effort.

The visitors failed to have a single shot on goal in the half, however in added time at the end of the half Craig Harris got clear of the home defence but delayed his shot and the chance was lost.   

The second half was only seconds old when Harris fired an unstoppable effort past home keeper John Connolly to give the visitors the lead.

Before the home side had time to regain a foothold in the game David Rainey doubled the visitors lead when he tapped in at the back post.

Rainey scored his second and his side’s third before the hour mark to seal the points for the Welders.
