  1. That's all for this week

    We will have all the goals from a dramatic day of Irish Premiership action on the BBC Sport website later tonight - and look out for the Irish League Show on the iPlayer on Monday evening.

    Thanks for following the action with us - see you next week.

  2. What they said

    Crusaders 4-3 Cliftonville

    Quote Message: I think our keeper was fouled for their third goal, I have had a look at it and it was a blatant foul. We didn't get the rub of the green today and for me the referee wasn't great. But, regardless of decisions, we should be able to see a 3-0 lead out - we cannot hide from that. from Gerard Lyttle Cliftonville manager

  3. What they said

    Crusaders 4-3 Cliftonville

    Quote Message: We rolled the dice and it worked for us. We were rubbish for the first hour of this match and Cliftonville were fabulous. What a comeback from our team - they never know when they are beaten. We just went for it, took the full-back off and had a lash. You have to be very pleased. Cliftonville were excellent for an hour but they took their foot off a bit. from Stephen Baxter Crusaders manager

  4. What they said

    Ards 3-1 Carrick Rangers

    Quote Message: Our target is to do well in matches against teams around us in the table and we have done that today. We have been better prepared for life in the Premiership this time around, and recruited experienced Irish League players. from David Bryson Assistant manager, Ards

  5. What they said

    Ballinamallard Utd 2-0 Dungannon Swifts

    Quote Message: We owed our home supporters a performance like that and we are pleased with our day's work. We struggled away to Crusaders last week but most teams will struggle there, and if you take that result out we have had three wins. from James McKenna Ballinamallard goal scorer

  6. What they said

    Coleraine 2-2 Ballymena United

    Quote Message: We were not at the races for big parts of it today and we gave away sloppy goals. The lads are frustrated. We cannot go on giving teams two-goal starts. Ballymena wanted it more than us and it hurts me to say that. We showed a bit of character to come back but the truth is we were second best and that is not acceptable. from Oran Kearney Coleraine manager

  7. How they stand

    Irish Premiership

    For a while it looked like Ballymena United would be only team in the top three to win today - turns out they were the only ones not to win.

    The 4-3 win for Crusaders was a remarkable comeback while Linfield snatched victory over Glentoran. Ballymena will be hurting after only taking one point after leading 2-0 at Coleraine.
