LARNE MOVE INTO TOP SIX

Larne moved into the top six following this defeat of Newry City at Inver Park.

Ralph Kottoy opened the scoring as early as the fifth minute from the spot after Newry 'keeper Stephen Maguire had upended David Scullion.

The visitors levelled on 13 minutes, however, when Mark McCabe sent a low shot past Conor Devlin from inside the area.

And Newry edged into the lead just before the hour when, following a handball, Jimmy Walker converted the second penalty of the game.

However, Larne levelled with just over a quarter-of-an-hour remaining thanks to Gerard Thompson's close range header before, with four minutes left, Matthew Henry grabbed the winner by nodding Kottoy's inswinging corner into the bottom right.

Larne: Devlin, Henry, Thompson, Bradley, Holland, Fornah, Georgaklis, Kottoy, Scullion, Stuart, Downey subs Reynolds, McConnell, Tolan, Chisanga, Anav (replaced Georgaklis 62)
