UUJ are now unbeaten in their last four league outings, climbing up to eighth place in the Amateur League’s Division 1A after Saturday’s 2-1 home victory over high-flying Dundonald.

It was the visitors who broke the deadlock, having been held at bay by a couple of fine saves from Eamon Browne.

UUJ, however, responded on the half-hour when Ciaran Murray’s free-kick from the edge of the box was fumbled into Padraig Scollay’s line of fire.

On 37 minutes the Jordanstown side forged ahead and again it was Scollay who stole in at the back post to nod in Michael Donnelly’s right-wing cross.

UUJ looked comfortable in the second session, even after the visitors moved to a more adventurous 4-4-2.

The home side could have wrapped it all up just before the close, but the Dundonald keeper reacted superbly to keep out Ryan Kelly’s attempted chip.

UUJ: Browne – F Brannigan, McBriarty, Irwin (R Kelly) – Donnelly, Crossan (Moeler), Lyons, Liggett, M Brannigan – Murray, Scollay (McKeown).
