United slip to ninth place

Thursday, 28 December 2017

LIMAVADY United will be hoping that the New Year will bring with it a change of luck as they slumped to yet another defeat at New Forge on Saturday, their fourth in a row, and an unwelcome record under Paul Owens' tenure.
A dismal December has seen the Roesiders slip from fourth to ninth, but yet again, the visitors can justifiably claim to have been the better team for long periods, although they were seriously weakened once more by the absence of talisman Robbie Hume.
By contrast, the hosts PSNI probably only created four clear cut chances and took each of them.
Ray Kelly took over goalkeeping duties from the injured Wells but his first task was to pick the ball out of the net in the tenth minute after yet another soft goal. A cross was turned back across goal by the unmarked McDowell and with United's defence flat footed, Moody was allowed the freedom of Belfast to stroke the ball home.
United had a great chance to draw level six minutes later as Carlin's flick fell for Gillan inside the box but his effort was weak.
