Glenavon swept to a comprehensive four-goal victory over Warrenpoint Town at Mourneview Park to take a step closer to securing seventh spot and a possible European play-off place.
Gary Hamilton's side are now six points ahead of fellow hopefuls Ballymena United although David Jeffrey's side will be striving to reduce that gap tomorrow afternoon when they visit bottom of the table Dungannon Swifts.
Andy Hall opened the scoring for the Lurgan Blues just before the half-hour mark with a close range header after he rose unchallenged to connect with Robert Garrett's delivery from the right flank.
It was 2-0 just six minutes later, albeit in somewhat fortuitous circumstances. Danny Purkis sent over a cross from the right but, as he attempted to clear the danger, 'Point defender Danny Wallace could only send the ball looping over his own keeper and into the net.
The game was put beyond doubt on 70 minutes with Hall's second of the evening, a superb executed right-foot free-kick from outside the area that flew past Andy Coleman into the top corner.
Then, deep into stoppage time, Matthew Snoddy did well to get a cross in which Coleman failed to hold allowing Purkis to slot home number four from close range.
