McCLOSKEY BAGS GLENAVON'S LATE WINNER

A Conor McCloskey goal four minutes from time earned Glenavon all three points from title chasing Crusaders' visit to Mourneview Park.

McCloskey bagged the points for Gary Hamilton's side with a superb 20-yard effort into bottom corner to complete the turnaround after they had fallen behind towards the end of the first half.

Paul Heatley had given the Crues the half-time advantage with a simple touch from point blank range after Declan Caddell had headed down Jamie McGonigle's cross from the right.

Glenavon levelled on 67 minutes. Johnny Tuffey punted forward a free-kick from deep inside his own half which found the opposite penalty area before Daniels got the faintest of touches to direct it past Gerard Doherty at the left post.
