Lisburn Distillery remain undefeated at home following this defeat of Lurgan Celtic thanks to two Matthew Ferguson goals.

The Whites moved in front on 22 minutes with Ferguson's first of the afternoon, a calm finish into the bottom left corner after Francis Dugan had flicked the ball on.

Celtic levelled seven minutes from the break through Aaron Rogers' header after Shane McCabe's cross hadn't been adequately dealt with by the home defence.

Alan McMurtry might have restored Distillery's lead on the hour only for Hoops keeper Ciaran Fox to tip the ball onto the crossbar.

But, with ten minutes to go, Dugan did make it 2-1 with a composed effort past Fox after he got on the end of a long punt forward.

Then, moments later, Ferguson made sure of the points after finding himself unmarked at the back post.
