Glenavon came away from Windsor Park with a 3-2 victory over Linfield in a entertaining game.

The Blues took the lead after just two minutes, Kurtis Byrne with an accurate volley into the bottom corner.

But on seven minutes it was 1-1, Simon Kelly heading home past Roy Carroll from a Bobby Burns corner.

That was Kelly's first league goal for Glenavon for over a year.

On 48 minutes there was confusion in David Healy's side's penalty area.

The Blues couldn't avert the danger, and Andy Mitchell forced the ball home to make it 2-1.

The Lurgan Blues netted a late third when Marc Griffin scored, profiting from great work on the flank from Murray.

Andy Waterworth pulled back a consolation for the Blues.
