Reds clinch win over struggling Mallards

Cliftonville recover from successive defeats by Glenavon and Dungannon Swifts by beating Ballinamallard United 2-1 at Ferney Park.

Darren Murray put the Reds ahead on 32 minutes shortly after Ballinamallard's Liam Flatley had received a straight red card for a challenge on Jason McGuinness.

The home side levelled in first-half injury-time as Adam Lecky poked home after Reds keeper Jason Mooney had dropped a cross.

A Ryan McConnell own goal restored Cliftonville's advantage before Jason McCartney missed a 78th-minute Ballinamallard penalty.
