Two injury time goals at Knockramer Park saw Lurgan Celtic turn defeat into victory against high flying Institute.

New signing Jordan Bell fired Celtic into the lead after 21 minutes when he turned home a Dale Malone free-kick.

But 'Stute levelled just before the half-hour mark when Niall Grace pounced on the loose ball after 'keeper Conor McCorry dropped a cross from the left.

Then, six minutes from the break, Aaron Harkin edged the visitors in front when he stepped up to curl a sublime free-kick into the top corner.

Celtic got back into the game on 68 minutes courtesy of a successfully converted Malone spot-kick only to fall behind again within five minutes after 'Stute skipper Stephen O'Donnell rose to head a free-kick past McCorry.

However, the real drama was left until stoppage time.

First, on 91 minutes, Adam Rodgers made it 3-3 after he was unmarked inside the area to hook the ball over 'keeper Martin Gallagher before, a couple of minutes after that, Conor Hagan grabbed Celtic's winner with a back post header from a Malone cross.
