Portadown took another step forward with a point and encouraging performance away to Ballymena United on Saturday.

Sean Mackle broke the deadlock for the Ports by stooping low to head home a Gary Twigg cross, following sharp play by the forward to move past Ballymena goalkeeper Dwayne Nelson and pick out the run of his team-mate into the penalty area.

Allan Jenkins rewarded Ballymena for increased pressure with an equaliser - but the point on the road handed Portadown another positive following the previous weekend’s 3-2 victory against Carrick Rangers that stopped the rot after six successive defeats.
