Newry slipped deeper into relegation trouble after this Premiership defeat at Stangmore Park.

The only goal came after 10 minutes with Peter McCann turning Darren Murphy's fierce cross into his own net.

Tommy McCallion went close for Newry while Dungannon forward Conor Forker wasted five chances in the second half.

McCallion was dismissed for two yellow cards in the final minute and Newry are now six points adrift of Donegal Celtic at the bottom.
