 Pattern question: first child of first descendant

I am looking for a pattern that does "match the first title or para
child of the first entry descendant of a table element". I'm using XSLT2.

The pattern I have come up with so far is

match="*[self::para or self::title][parent::entry = (ancestor::table[1]//

It seems to work, but looks a little cumbersome to me. Is there a better
way to express that match?
