WATCH: Fans react as Waterford net injury time winner against Cork City

There were wild celebrations at Turners Cross on Monday evening as Waterford FC pulled off an extraordinary comeback against close rivals Cork City.

Alan Reynolds' men went in search of the win on the bus to Cork in order to leapfrog Neale Fenn's side in the table but they were up against it when Daire O'Connor netted in the 26th minute for the home side.

Fenn looked set for his first win as Cork City manager until Maxim Kouogun fired the equaliser in the 82nd minute and the Blues' push for a winner paid off in the first minute of injury time when Walter Figueira slotted Georgie Poynton's cross to the net. 

Queue wild celebrations in the away end. A thing of absolute beauty!
