Blues through in Co Antrim Shield despite Ards late show

Two injury-time goals come too late for Ards as Linfield earn a 3-2 win in the County Antrim Shield quarter-final at Windsor Park.

Brian McCaul and Kyle McVey scored with first-half headers for the Blues with striker Matthew Tipton adding a third before Andy Mitchell and Craig McMillen replied late on for Ards.

Linfield manager David Jeffrey said his team had been impressive until "some late sloppiness".
