  1. Final whistle

    That's it for this week, thanks for following the action with us. We will get videos of all of today's goals up on our website tonight - and look out for the Irish League Show on the iPlayer on Monday evening. See you next week.

  2. Who's set for the Oval office?

    Glentoran's managerial vacancy

    Glentoran chairman Stephen Henderson says the club's directors are still in the process of choosing a new manager.

    Alan Kernaghan resigned last month following an embarrassing League Cup defeat by lowly Championship side Annagh United.

    Henderson thanked the supporters for their patience and said caretaker boss Roy Coyle would remain in charge for Tuesday's County Antrim Shield match against Bangor.

  3. What they said

    Glentoran 1-3 Crusaders

    Quote Message: We created enough chances to be two or three up at half-time, but we didn't take them. I was pleased with what we were going and we just had to be patient and we got two goals in the second half. You have to be pleased when you get three points on the road. from Stephen Baxter Crusaders manager

  5. What they said

    Cliftonville 1-0 Coleraine

    Quote Message: We have had a bit of bad luck recently so I'd take a 1-0 all day. I did not think we were going to concede as we were solid at the back and had a real belief that we were going to take the three points. from Gerard Lyttle Cliftonville manager

    So champions Crusaders go five points clear at the top of the table, last season's runners-up Linfield are into second with - wait for it - Ballymena United in third place. I know a Ballymena fan who will be screen-grabbing the table tonight, won't you Rab?

    Carrick Rangers 0-2 Linfield

    Goals from Ross Gaynor and Aaron Burns send David Healy's Blues into second place.

  12. RED CARD

    Dungannon Swifts 1-1 Glenavon

    Drama at Dungannon as Glenavon player-manager Gary Hamilton is sent off just a few minutes after coming on as a substitute. He may have swung a right arm at opponent Chris Hegarty as the pair fell to the ground following a challenge. The Lurgan side are down to nine with six minutes left.

    Mind you, Hamilton is not going quietly as he lets ref Mervyn Smyth know what he thinks about the straight red verdict.
