A last-minute goal by Dundalk’s James McGrath was all that separated the sides in a match that both managers described as a good workout for their respective teams. A strong wind, which Glenavon had at their backs for the first half, made playing conditions tricky for both sides.
Glenavon had strong claims for a second-half penalty turned down when Renato De Vecchi was bundled over in the box and a couple of dubious offside decisions went against the home side.
