Dungannon Swifts Michael Carvill was delighted to fire home a stoppage time winner over Institute.

The striker, who scored a late goal to earn the Swifts a Premiership point against Stute a few weeks ago, made no mistake with virtually the last kick of the game to seal Irish Cup progress.

"To be honest I was relieved I scored," said Carvill. "I was thinking 'oh no, we're going into extra-time' and would have to put in another shift, so I was delighted to score."

Rhyss Campbell put the visitors in front after just five minutes before ex-Swifts favourite Cormac Burke levelled.

Ben Campbell restored Dungannon's lead only for Burke to strike again ahead of Carvill's decisive impact.

Stute boss Sean Connor was left fuming with midfielder Niall Grace, whom he substituted in the first-half to avoid a red card, after the midfielder had received an early booking for clashing with Swifts captain Seanan Clucas.

"Niall Grace has played his last game for Institute, that's 100 per cent," insisted Connor. "He'll be going on the transfer list."
