Ballymena United have replaced Linfield at the top of the Danske Bank Premiership after a 2-1 victory away to 10-man Newry City on Friday night.
Adam Lecky and Andy McGrory scored to make it 2-0 for the Sky Blues at half-time.
Newry keeper Andy Coleman was sent off with an hour played for a clash with a Ballymena player but the home side pulled one back through Dale Montgomery.
Newry also had a goal disallowed.
Gutted for the players this evening who put in a massive shift and deserved more from the game. Few dubious decisions to say the least but we will take the positives out of it and move onto Friday night’s game #NCAFC 🔵⚪️
