Paul Heatley volleyed Carrick ahead on 35 but Ryan Henderson had Celtic on terms by the 39th minute.

Johnny Harkness, who had helped set up DC's opening two goals, hit the winner from a 50th-minute penalty.

Harkness was involved in Carrick's opener as his cross was diverted into his own net by Lagan.

Carrick levelled as Dolan hammered in from 10 yards after a quickly-taken throw-in.
