Adam Rodgers struck in the closing moments to earn Lurgan Celtic a share of the spoils from HW Welders' visit to Knockramer Park.

Rodgers poked home the equaliser from close range on 90 minutes after Philip Donnelly had created the opening.

And Donnelly was instrumental in Celtic going ahead after a quarter-of-an-hour when he knocked on a Marc Brolly cross for Warner Mullen to head past Welders 'keeper Robert Robinson.

The Welders levelled five minutes from the break through David Rainey after a throw-in wasn't properly dealt with by the Celtic defence.

Rainey then struck again six minutes into the second half when, after the visitors had broken out of defence, he applied the finish touch to beat Shane McPartland for a second time.
