Seasiders look to maintain top spot


Donegall Celtic v Bangor, Suffolk Road, Saturday 3pm

BANGOR will be looking to maintain their top spot in Championship 1 as they make a promotion bid to the Premiership next season.

Following on from last week’s late, late show when they ultimately beat Loughgall 2-1, this Saturday Garth Scates’ charges will face another tough task when they travel to Donegal Celtic on Saturday.

Last season Bangor did the double over the west Belfast side, winning away on August 17, 2013, by four goals to one. Scorers were Andy Morrow (9 mins), Dean Youle (17), Jordan Forsythe (38) and Ethan Boylan (90+3).

In the return on January 4 Bangor edged out the visitors by the only goal of the match.

This season Donegal Celtic are in 10th place in the table with a record of two wins and one draw in seven matches.

Last Saturday Celtic went 3-1 down away to Dundela. Leading scorer in the league for manager Nicky Maye’s charges is ex-Cliftonville striker Darren Stuart with three goals.

Clandeboye Supporters Club bus to Donegal Celtic leaves at 2pm from Bangor FC Social Club. All supporters welcome.
