Ballymena beat Cliftonville to close in on leaders

Ballymena United's impressive run of form continues as goals from Cathair Friel and Steven McCullough help David Jeffrey's men past Cliftonville at the Showgrounds.

Friel broke the deadlock in the second half, with McCullough's inch perfect free-kick doubling United's advantage.

Conor McDonald pulled a goal back for Cliftonville but it didn't stop the Sky Blues moving four points off the top.
