The Blues were two nil down until the 84th minute when Andrew Waterworth and Mark McAllister equalised for the visitors before Mark Haughey sealed the victory in added time.

Earlier Town's Stephen Hughes put the home side ahead on the 25th minute before Liam Bagnall added a second on the half time mark in the day's early kick off.

Elsewhere Glentoran equalised two minutes into injury time to share the spoils at The Oval against Portadown.

Jordan Stewart and Jay Magee scored for the Glens while Darren Murray and Chris Casement got on the scoresheet for the visitors.
