A goal by striker Ryan Campbell after 20 minutes saw Ballinamallard United through to the next round of the Irish Cup.

Intermediate League side, Strabane, though, really played their part in an exciting tie at Ferney Park.

The home side should have gone in two ahead with good chances for Campbell and Leckey.

In the second half David Kee struck the crossbar with a brilliant curling free kick.
