Linfield played the final pre season game before the return of competitive football with Monday’s County Antrim Shield tie against PSNI, with this entertaining behind closed doors training game at New Midgley Park.

Early on Stephen Fallon’s shot came back off the crossbar and as Linfield pressed for the opener, Mark Stafford narrowly headed over a whipped in Niall Quinn free kick.

Matthew Shevlin was slipped in by Quinn but Connolly got down well to save and just before the break the visiting keeper saved again, this time from a Niall Quinn free kick.

Half time - Linfield 0 Ballinamallard 0

Early in the second half the Fermanagh men raced into a 2-0 lead.

Linfield hit back through a Brandon Doyle penalty after Lavery nicked the ball away from the keeper with his first involvement in the game, after coming on as sub.

Linfield equalised from the penalty spot, this time through Shayne Lavery.

Lavery earned the penalty after going on a great solo run and he sent the keeper the wrong way from the spot.

Linfield came close to sealing the win but Larkin could only flick a great cross by Quinn over the bar.

Full time - Linfield 2 Ballinamallard 2
