Swans out to fly higher

NEWINGTON will look to extend their lead at the top of the PlayR-Fit Championship when they make the short trip to face Bangor at Clandeboye Park.

The north Belfast side are three points clear of nearest rivals Dundela, who host Ards.

The Swans have been a revelation this season, winning six matches out of seven and scoring 17 goals in the process. Zach Barr was also named Championship Player of the Month. The striker bagged five goals in August including a hat-trick against Institute.

Big guns Portadown, relegated from the top flight last season, are six points off the pace in fourth.

FIXTURES (Saturday 3pm): Annagh v Institute, Bangor v Newington, Dergview v Knockbreda, Dundela v Ards, H&W Welders v Ballyclare, Portadown v Ballinamallard
