Glenavon 0-2 Portadown

Portadown closed the gap on Carling Premiership leaders Linfield to two points thanks to a Matthew Tipton double in the Mid Ulster derby.

Brian Gartland went close for the visitors before Tipton pounced on a defensive mix-up and blasted home from 18 yards after 33 minutes.

Tipton scored from a penalty 10 minutes later after Ross Redman was fouled.

Ports keeper David Miskelly was rarely called into action but he made a fine save to deny Brendan Shannon.
