Ballymena booked their place in the semi-finals of the League Cup with a 2-0 win over Warrenpoint Town at Milltown on Wednesday night.

United were on song from the start with Darren Henderson forcing the home keeper into an early save.

Town's hopes took a blow on 36 minutes when they were reduced to ten men with Liam Bagnal seeing red for a rash challenge on Jim Ervin.

Ballymena remained on top but lacked a cutting edge from the chances created as the first half ended scoreless.

Warrenpoint had a chance to edge ahead early after the restart with Conor McMenamin just failing to hit the target.

After Leroy Millar missed at the other end the breakthrough finally came when Willie Faulkner slotted the ball between the keeper's legs to put United ahead on 70 minutes.

With 15 minutes to go United sealed the win after Cathair Friel grabbed his 15th goal of the season.
