Match-winner, Paul Maguire gave the Times his reaction to Larne’s dramatic 3-2 victory over Lurgan Celtic.

“It was a big win for us and we really needed it after two defeats. But going in at 2-1 we knew we could go on and win the game. The second half was as well as we have played in the last three weeks,” he said.

“I was struggling to hold the ball up as my touch was awful. It helped having Keke back - even though he is short of match fitness. I had a chance before the winner but it was blocked and luckily enough when the second chance came I was able to put it away.

“We are still very much in the mix, so hopefully we can put a good run together as it is wide open at the top of the table.”
