Glenavon’s reward for winning Tuesday night’s Mid-Ulster Cup draw will be a home quarter-final against Loughgall.

The Lurgan Blues survived falling behind to an own goal after just five minutes to see off Rathfriland Rangers in their first round tie.

A Josh Doyle header from a Conor Scannell cross put Glenavon back on level terms on 36 minutes, before Scannell got on the score sheet himself, turning in a Conor Kerr cross which had been pushed away by Rathfriland goalkeeper McMullan.

Loughgall progressed after seeing off Lurgan intermediate side Oxford Sunnyside 1-0 at Lakeview Park.
