Paul Heatley put the hosts ahead in the third minute, firing a low shot to the bottom corner after he got goal side of Rhys Marshall and picked up a diagonal ball just outside the Glenavon box.

In the end that early goal proved enough for the Champions but another man of the match performance by Glenavon goal keeper Jonny Tuffey ensured that Heatley and fellow striker Jordan Owens were unable to add to the score line.

Glenavon’s best chances came via the boot and head of Eoin Bradley, a well struck shot in the first half being parried by Sean O’Neill but the striker perhaps should have equalised in the 54th minute but he failed to get enough contact with a close range header from Andy Hall’s corner. Fifteen minutes later he ran clear onto a flick on from Kyle Neill’s throw in but fired narrowly wide.
