AWAY DAY JOY FOR CELTIC IN 9 GOAL THRILLER.

Byline: ALEX MILLS

Crusaders 4 D Celtic 5

DONEGAL Celtic boss Paddy Kelly hailed his battlers following this dramatic Carling Premiership thriller at Seaview. Celtic grabbed two goals in injury time to pull the rug from under Crusaders' title challenge.

Old boy Mark Dickson shot home an equaliser on 91 minutes before Paul McVeigh rammed in the winner from penalty spot with only seconds on the clock.

Goals from Ryan Henderson (2) and McVeigh had Celtic in front at the interval - cancelling out Martin Donnelly's brilliant double blast.

Midfielder Stuart Dallas then took centre stage by bagging a quick-fire double in the second half, which looked like sealing the points - until Dickson struck, that is.

"I can't praise the boys enough," beamed Kelly.

"From a spectators' point, it must have been brilliant. It wasn't so good for me as a manager.

"I knew we had substitutes who could make an impact. Dickson has the knack of scoring goals - he's a natural. It was his first for our club - and what a time to get it.

"Even when we trailed 4-3 in the dying minutes, I still though there would be another twist.

"Very few teams come here and leave with any satisfaction - I thought we deserved the points."

Dickson bounced on from the bench with six minutes remaining.

He stormed through the middle in injury time before beating Keenan from the edge of the box.

Keenan then sent another substitute, Tomas McCann, tumbling to concede a penalty and McVeigh did the needful from the spot.
