Trying to assign formula with dynamic range to a cell

Trying to use the following assignment. Can not use relative referencing, that I know of, because the last column can change.

Dim LastCol as long

'Comment: LastCol = 90

This syntax:
Range("E2").Formula = "= "Average(" & Range (Cells(2,7), Cells(2, LastCol - 2 )) & ")" "
won't compile, says "Syntax error"

This syntax:
Range("E2").Formula = "= ""Average("" & Range (Cells(2,7), Cells(2, LastCol - 2 )) & "")"" "
just copies the text into the cell. The formula does not work.
