Two goals in the last five minutes saw Ballyclare Comrades snatch a dramatic victory over Loughgall at Dixon Park.

The visitors started brightly and deservedly went ahead on 21 minutes through Jordan Gibson after a well worked short corner.

It was a lead they held going into the break, but after the interval Ballyclare looked a different proposition.

They came close to levelling on 66 minutes when Thomas Robinson slid in to meet a low Gary Brown cross only for the ball to go wide.

Substitute Jamie Willighan then had an effort cleared off the line with a quarter-of-an-hour remaining before, on 85 minutes, Jason Johnston did level with a six-yard finish.

Then, with just sixty seconds of normal time remaining, Brown swept home Ballyclare's winner from close range to complete a dramatic turnaround.
