Glenavon dropped to sixth in the Irish Premiership table after they fell to a home defeat to Ballinamallard on Saturday.
In what was a largely drab and uneventful game at Mourneview Park, the Lurgan Blues squandered their best chance when Paddy McCourt saw his penalty saved by the visitors’ goalkeeper Jack McGrath midway through the second half.
Just as the game looked to be heading towards a stalemate, Adam Lecky was brought down in the area deep into injury time, with the referee awarding a penalty for the offence.
Lecky stepped up to convert his spot kick and hand his side their first win of the campaign.
