  1. Final whistle

    That's all for now folks so thanks for joining us on a day when Coleraine continued their blistering start to the campaign to maintain a three-point gap on champions Linfield. Crusaders slipped five points off the pace while Ballinamallard are looking up at the rest, still without a win from their opening seven games.

    We're back for more of the same next Saturday.

  2. Hat-trick hero snaffles match ball

    Linfield 4-0 Ballinamallard United

    Quote Message: It's brilliant to score in any game but to get a hat-trick is a good feeling. It was relief more than anything - things haven't been going my way in front of goal. The first two were good team goals and I got a bit of luck with the third, I got the break of the ball and put it away. I've got the match ball tucked away, don't worry about that! from Jordan Stewart Linfield

    Quote Message: We went in 1-1 at half time when we felt we could have been three or four up, but we have good spirit and kept doing the right things in the second half. We are good on the eye, good going forward and controlled the game. It's great [to move into top six] but we have to keep it one game at a time. from Rodney McAree Dungannon Swifts manager

  5. There's goals in the Hall

    Glenavon 3-1 Cliftonville

    Quote Message: As a winger it's my job to set up goals and score a few and I probably don't score enough. I was delighted to get one today and set up a couple. The second goal probably killed it as a tie. We're happy with the start we've made. We'll just keeping chipping away every week and see where it takes us in the table. from Andy Hall Glenavon

  6. McCauley provides secrets to scoring

    Coleraine 3-0 Carrick Rangers

    Quote Message: It was a bit scrappy in the first half but we looked dangerous when we got in behind them. Every time I go on the pitch now I think I'm going to score (six in his last three games). I put it down to things I'm doing outside training, such as diet and gym work. I'm not getting any younger and it's time I delivered. We have strength in depth now, which we didn't have before, and we'll take it one game at a time. from Darren McCauley Coleraine double scorer

    Quote Message: I'm really pleased to get the draw and I feel we deserved it. Against the top teams you have to work hard and stifle them. Our keeper Aaron Hogg was superb and the back four immense, while Johnny Frazer could have nicked a win for us. from Colin Nixon Ards manager

  8. It's a good league, isn't it?

    Walker impressed

    Quote Message: Things are looking up for everyone. It's a very different Glentoran team from last year, Glenavon look to have improved and week on week, and there are interesting fixtures to look forward to. It's a good league this year. from Roy Walker Former Crusaders and Ballymena manager

  10. Victory shows character - McGuigan

    Ballymena Utd 1-3 Glentoran

    Quote Message: We were worthy winners - we were not great but that shows the character we have to get the win. We have to kick on now although there's tough games ahead. I've set myself a target a 10 goals this season and I'm now on free. I thought my free-kick was going over but it just dipped at the end. I have a good delivery. from John McGuigan Glentoran goalscorer

  11. Brilliant Bannsiders!

    Coleraine 3-0 Carrick Rangers

    Quote Message: Coleraine's 100% start to the season continues after a near perfect performance. Only some wasteful finishing meant they didn't crush Carrick. Darren McCauley is in devastating form with the winger scoring six goals in his last three games. from Eric White Saturday Sportsound reporter

  13. Reds off colour

    Glenavon 3-1 Cliftonville

    Quote Message: What's disappointing for Cliftonville is that they showed nothing in the second half. After that poor first half you expect a response after half time but it didn't happen. Glenavon played on the front foot and were by far the better side. from Darren Murphy Ex-Irish League player and manager

  15. FULL-TIME

    Glenavon 3-1 Cliftonville

    Andy Hall set up the first for Mitchell, scored the second and set up the third for Griffin in an impressive Glenavon display over 10-man Cliftonville.

    Joe Gormley pulled one back for the disjointed Reds but it was too little too late, Breen's late dismissal summing up a frustrating afternoon.

  16. FULL-TIME

    Linfield 4-0 Ballinamallard

    Blues are back to winning ways after the midweek defeat by Crusaders, and move above their Belfast rivals into second place.

    Another miserable day for Ballinamallard's basement strugglers.

  17. Bannsiders maintain unbeaten start to season

    Coleraine 3-0 Carrick Rangers

    Coleraine continue with their great start to the season

    Dungannon 2-1 Warrenpoint Town

    Another good result for the Swifts. Their third league win in the last four matches.

  20. FULL-TIME

    Crusaders 0-0 Ards

    Ards hold on for point as the visitors frustrate Crues.
