Linfield Ladies returned to the Women's Premiership summit after two late strikes secured a 3-2 comeback win over Crusaders at Midgley Park.

Jessica Hill netted a Crues opener and Kirsty McGuinness levelled before Amy McGivern restored the visitor's lead.

Casey Lowe made it 2-2 before Caitlin McGuinness won it for the Blues, who go three points clear of Glentoran.

Cliftonville beat Derry City 2-0 away in Wednesday night's other game with Marissa Callaghan bagging both goals.

The Reds have strengthened their grip on a top-four spot while City, who were without a raft of first-team players for the Brandywell game, have just one point and one goal from their opening nine league games.

Linfield have now played the same number of games as a Glens team which had no game as they prepare for the League Cup final against Sion Swifts on Friday night.
