Annagh United kept in touch with the top two with a hard fought win over Queens University on Saturday.
The team confirmed as the most exciting and free scoring in the UK with 4.9 goals per game had to settle for just one this time round.
However, the one goal was enough to secure all three points.
The all important goal came on 29 minutes when Scott McCordick met a corner from Jamie Gardiner and his header flew past the home keeper.
“After hitting the headlines about our goals scored we might have known it was going to be a close one on Saturday,” said manager Dean Smith.
“At this stage of the season a win is a win and the most important thing was the fact we got the three points.
“We worked hard and maybe could have had one or two more, but we took our chance when it came. We worked on our set-pieces and it is always good when you get a goal from something the lads have taken on board. They never really put us under any real pressure with the back four solid and that ensured we kept a clean sheet.
“The front two worked very hard throughout the 90 minutes and we got the result we wanted.
“With just a few games to go it is all in our own hands and it is important we concentrate on our own game and forget about other results.”
This weekend Annagh have a tough test as they travel to Planters Park to take on Dollingstown, kick-off is 3.00pm.
Last week Annagh Reserves had a 1-0 win at Dollingstown Reserves.
