LISBURN Distillery came from two goals down to snatch a crucial victory from this bottom of the table visit to Mourneview Park.

Niall Henderson opened the scoring for Glenavon on seven minutes. He got the final touch to a move which began when player-manager Gary Hamilton laid the ball off for Tony Grant who, in turn, touched in on into the danger zone.

Kyle Neill almost made it 2-0 on 30 minutes only for his inswinging corner to be well kept out by Billy Brennan under pressure from Grant.

But Glenavon's second did arrive three minutes into first half stoppage time thanks to new loan signing Brian McCaul with a first time effort from a Grant cross.

The Whites came roaring back after the break, however, with two goals in quick succession just after the hour mark.

On 63 minutes Gary Liggett touched home a Gary Thompson flick from a Jordan Forsythe free-kick.

Then, four minutes later, Thompson was instrumental again when Liggett got on the end of his through ball to calmly take the ball past Davy O'Hare.

It got worse for Glenavon on 78 minutes when Ciaran Doherty was dismissed by referee Arnold Hunter for a second bookable offence.

And a minute later the Whites grabbed what proved to be the winner thanks to an Aaron Traynor header from an Andy Hall right-wing cross.

Hamilton almost equalised for Glenavon a couple of minutes after that only to turn a shot onto an upright from a Mark Miskimmin flick.
