They also beat Cliftonville 3-2 at home in the 1st round of the Toals Co Antrim Shield on Tuesday evening.
Ballymena United:
Facing in incredibly tough start to the league campaign, the Sky Blues have lost to Coleraine, Crusaders, Larne, Linfield, Glentoran and Glenavon. Unsurprisingly this leaves United rooted firmly to the bottom of the Sports Direct Premiership with no points, 2 behind 11th placed Dungannon Swifts.

They were unceremoniously dumped out of the Toals Co Antrim Shield in the 1st round on Tuesday night, losing 4-3 to Knockbreda after coming back twice only to concede in the 84th minute.
