INSTITUTE missed the chance to join Niall Currie's Portadown at the top of the PlayR-Fit Championship when they could only draw 2-2 with Dergview under the Friday night lights at Darragh Park.

Stute though will regard it as a point gained after coming back from two goals - and a man - down.

Dergview led at the break through Niall McGinley found the net on 43 minutes and not long after the interval Stute lost Evan Tweed for two cautions in quick succession.

Shane McMonagle made it 2-0 before Sean McCarron pulled one back.

Deep into stoppage time, McCarron's cross was turned into his own net by Dergview's Blaine Burns.
