Portadown 2-1 Carrick Rangers

Portadown kept alive their slim hopes of avoiding relegation following a late 2-1 victory over Ards at Shamrock Park.

Niall Currie’s side fell behind in the 55th minute after Martin Murray scored from the penalty spot following a foul on Tommy Elver.

But with nine minutes of normal time remaining Niall Henderson’s penalty drew Portadown level.

The Ports took the lead just a minute later through Luke Wilson to ensure Premiership survival for at least another week.
