Glenavon got three points on the board last night as they saw off Ballinamallard United 3-0 at Mourneview Park.

The home took the lead in the 13th minute when the Mallards defence failed to deal with a ball into their box and Andy Hall smashed it past Richard Brush.

Mark Sykes doubled the lead five minutes from time after Ciaran Martyn squared the ball to leave him with a tap in after Brush could only parry a fierce shot by Greg Moorhouse.

Moorhouse then scored a cracker in stoppage time to make it 3-0. He raced clear down the right - outpacing Jay McCartney - before shotting home.
