A late winner from Daniel Hughes secured a priceless win for struggling Warrenpoint Town at Stangmore Park.

Hughes struck his second of the afternoon with six minutes remaining to secure only a fourth win of the season for the Co Down side.

It had all started so well for Dungannon with Matt Hazley giving them the lead with just 92 seconds gone.

Hughes levelled with a stylish equaliser in the 35th minute, lifting the ball over the goalkeeper from a tight angle.

He then snatched victory in the 84th minute, with manager Barry Gray watching from the sidelines after he had been sent from the touchline.
