Dungannon Swifts 1 Ballinamallard United 1
Ballinamallard climbed out of the relegation zone after holding fellow strugglers Dungannon Swifts to a draw at Stangmore Park.
Both sides were on a five-game losing run and the pressure to break that sequence resulted in a poor quality spectacle.
The Fermanagh men, who had slipped into the relegation zone in midweek, took the lead after 18 minutes.
A goal kick was missed by the Swifts’ defenders with Ryan Campbell keeping his composure to lob the ball over the goalkeeper.
Dungannon pulled themselves level a minute before the break, with Gary Liggett’s cross turned home at the back post by Matt Hazley.
