Glenavon struck twice in the closing stages to snatch a 2-1 victory over Glentoran in Monday night's Danske Bank Premiership match at the Oval.

Darren Murray put the Glens in front with a penalty in the first half. 

But visiting manager Gary Hamilton brought himself off the bench to equalise and Conor McCloskey grabbed a dramatic last-gasp winner.

Here's Glenavon striker Andrew Mitchell...

The result moves the Lurgan Blues to within six points of third-placed Crusaders with a game in hand - and the teams meet at Seaview on Friday night.

It's a setback for Glentoran's hopes of a European play-off place but manager Gary Smyth says with better defending it could have been a completely different story ...

The Glens' next game is against Coleraine at Ballycastle Road on Saturday.
