The hosts suffered a major loss through injury in defence when Greg Hawkins hobbled off with just over ten minutes remaining. Five minutes later the Gate men won a short corner; defender Mick Jordan received his marching orders to half-way for crossing the goal-line prematurely and this eased the pressure on visiting receiver Paul Kennedy. Timing his shot to perfection he was able to beat runner PJ Pierce and fire past 'keeper Luke Doyle and Kieran Costello. Despite this poor result one bright point was the return of youngster Liam Jowett after some time away, and the hope is that his form will push him back into contention for a slot with the first team.
