Ballinamallard came back to claim a point in an entertaining Tyrone-Fermanagh derby.

Dungannon took the lead in the first half when a corner from Ryan Harpur caused a scramble in the box, with Dermot McCaffrey getting the decisive touch.

The visitors barely had a strike of note – but all that changed in the second half.

They levelled through Liam McMenamin, who glanced home a cross from Anthony Elding in the 56th minute.

Ballinamallard could have snatched all three points but substitute Johnny Lafferty and Jason McCartney both saw efforts hit the woodwork.

Dungannon were reduced to 10 men late on when David Armstrong was shown a second yellow.
