ANNAGH had the ball in the City net on seven minutes but the goal was ruled out for offside.
Within 30 seconds former City captain Alan Murphy put through his own net when under pressure from Gavin Cusack to give City the lead.
The lead only lasted three minutes as Kenny Camlin brought the visitors back on level terms when he fired home a free kick from just outside the box.
The home side took the lead for the second time on 29 minutes when an excellent header from Andy Moore found its way into the far corner following a right wing corner from Dale Montgomery.
The Annagh equaliser on 41 minutes was virtually a carbon copy of the home side's second goal with DarraghPeden heading home following a right wing corner.
The pressure told thirteen minutes in when another former City favourite Dean Smith gave the visitors the lead for the first time in the match.
Annagh's Kenny Camlin was shown a straight red card for appearing to headbutt City captain Liam Cullen.
The home side with numerical advantage now began to get the upper hand and in the 71st minute Dale Mongomery brought City back on level terms when he fired home following an excellent run on the right by Ritchie Nesbitt.
