|BALLYMENA United won their second pre-season friendly in a row, coming back from a goal down to win with goals from Leroy Millar and Ryan Mayse.|
|It was a much feistier affair than the game against Cardiff Met last Friday evening, and it was the visitors who took the lead through a Jon Hood goal which was smashed low and hard past Glendinning in the 17th minute.|
|The score was level after 28 minutes when Leroy Millar rose highest to rattle a header in from a Steven McCullough corner.|
|Half-time seen the first of what turned out to be many substitutions from both sides, and it was a master stroke by United manager David Jeffrey, bringing on Shane McGinty and almost immediately he cut the ball back to Ryan Mayse who found the bottom corner of the net.|
|Both sides had a few key chances during the remainder of the game, but some resolute defending ensured the Sky Blues ran out 2-1 winners.|
Ballymena United host Faroese side NSI Runavik in the 1st leg of the UEFA Europa League Preliminary Round on Thursday evening at the Showgrounds, kicking off at 7:45pm.
