Former Portadown winger Peter McCann helped Lisburn Rangers cut short Tandragee Rovers’ Irish Cup hopes at the third-round stage on Saturday.

Rangers also included David Graham, a player with Scottish League experience, in the weekend defeat.

Rovers proved on the backfoot early on, with Rangers taking the lead thanks to good work between McCann and Graham.

Richard McGivern produced a fine save before Rangers increased the advantage.

AJ Gallagher had a teasing shot blocked and Jonny Black cleared the crossbar.

Slack finishing left Rovers unable to benefit from a positive period in the 3-0 reverse.

TANDRAGEE ROVERS: Richard McGivern, Ricky Dobbs, Chris Mackle, Iain Latimer, Gary Whiteside, Colin Bingham, Shea Skelton, Mark Bicker, Jonny Black, Cecil Corbett, AJ Gallagher. Subs: Scott Walker, Josh McIlwrath, Jamie Uprichard.
