7: The first chance falls to Glenavon when Eoin Bradley turned on a James Singleton cross. His shot came off Andy Coleman but the ball had already gone out for a goal kick.

10: David Armstrong does not connect cleanly with a Paul McElroy corner kick, failing to trouble Jonathan Tuffey.

11: At the other end Greg Moorhouse leaps to head an Andy Hall cross, but Coleman plucks it out of the air.

15: A Hall effort is deflected for a corner, which comes to nothing.

45: Mark Sykes turns a Hall free kick goalward with a header, but again it barely warms the hands of Coleman.

27: The best chance of the game falls to Dungannon as Jonathan Tuffey comes to the rescue, pulling off a great double save firstly from Jamie Glackin and then Andrew Mitchell.

34: Mitchell cuts in from the right, skips past a defender, but his shot is well off target. 

48: Lindsay booked after pulling Mitchell back. Dougie Wilson blasts the resulting free kick well over the bar from 35 yards.

51: Moorhouse has a big chance for Glenavon, getting in front of Coleman to head a Cooper cross, but his effort goes over.

55: Glackin pushes Sykes over and concedes a free kick 25 yards from goal – he also earns a booking for his troubles. Eoin Bradley takes aim with the free kick and Coleman has to be at full stretch to push it around the post.

63: Mitchell holds off Marron before getting a shot away inside the six yard box. Tuffey does well to tip the shot away, with Cooper getting the danger away.

69: Sykes in midfield finds Hall out on the right wing. He delivers a great cross for Moorhouse, who dives in at the back post, but pokes it wide. 

72: Controversy as Bradley puts the ball in the net but is ruled out for offside by the linesman, who left it late to make the call. The striker is booked following his protestations for dissent.

83: A half chance for Sykes is well wide of the mark.

89: Dungannon take a late lead through Andrew Mitchell. He taps in at the back post from a cross from the right after Clucas had found Cormac Burke.
