    That's it for today folks. The Irish League table remains unchanged in terms of positions after today's wins for Glentoran, Cliftonville and Dungannon Swifts. And Crusaders have progressed to the last eight of the Scottish Challenge Cup.

    Tune in to Sportsound and follow the action on the website and social media on Tuesday night as three more League Cup ties are decided.

    And don't forget about tomorrow night's coverage of Northern Ireland's final Group C qualifier against Norway, with live commentary on BBC Radio Ulster and the BBC Sport website.

    Bye for now.

  2. What they said

    Ards 0-1 Glentoran

    Quote Message: It was an open game. We created so many chances and should have had it dead and buried. We were always waiting for that second goal but it didn't come and it made it a nervy finish towards the end. We built good attacks and got into promising positions without killing the game off. But it was a good reaction to Monday night - we've had a good chat about that defeat to Crusaders and we cleared the air, so we've moved on, got three points here and that's the main thing. I think Robbie McDaid's red card was incredibly soft, I'm not quite sure if the referee knew he had already booked him in the first-half but from our perspective it was a soft one. from Gary Haveron Glentoran manager

  3. What they said

    Cliftonville 2-0 Warrenpoint Town

    Quote Message: It's disappointing. I feel like I'm repeating myself every week to be honest - Cliftonville didn't have to do much to win the game and that's a poor reflection on us. We made a couple of mistakes and they scored from them, it's as simple as that. Not only am I disappointed in the performance, but the result too. I thought we lacked a cutting edge up front and we can do better. We didn't create chances or get balls in the box so we didn't hurt Cliftonville enough. Every game is massive,l I keep telling the lads that but we've come away with nothing again and it's disappointing. from Matthew Tipton Warrenpoint Town manager

  4. What they said

    Cliftonville 2-0 Warrenpoint Town

    Quote Message: It's a clean sheet, we had two good goals and it was a comfortable afternoon without any major pressure. It was professional without being the greatest performance. We're more positive about the fact that we didn't concede any and restricted the amount of chances they created. It's strange for me [facing Warrenpoint] but it was good to see some of the friendly faces back and I'm glad I came out on top today. We're looking forward to a big game next week away to Glens, where we haven't played well recently I'm told, so the main thing is to keep our momentum going there. from Barry Gray Cliftonville manager

  7. What they said

    Dungannon Swifts 2-1 Ballymena Utd

    Quote Message: We were poor in the first half - we lacked energy and didn't create enough chances. I was happy to get in at half-time only 1-0 down. We responded well in the second half, forced the issue and played higher up the pitch. It was important to build on our recent results and I'm delighted to get the win. There was no doubt our penalty was deserved. If you are a Ballymena fan you will maybe be a bit disappointed to have your man sent-off. from Rodney McAree Dungannon Swifts manager

    Cove Rangers 0-3 Crusaders

    Declan Caddell scores Crusaders' third goal in the closing stages as Stephen Baxter's side book a place in Tuesday's quarter-final draw of the Scottish Challenge Cup.


    Irish Premiership final scores

    Irish Prem FT

    Ards 0-1 Glentoran

    It's over at the Bangor Fuels Arena! Curtis Allen's dinked effort in the opening minute proves enough to see Gary Haveron's through a tricky assignment.

    That's exactly the response the Glens manager wanted after Monday's humbling defeat to Crusaders, but he will be unhappy with Robbie McDaid's indiscipline late on in getting sent off for a silly second booking.

    But the Glens have three more points - and that's all that matters to them.

  11. RED CARD

    Ards 0-1 Glentoran

    Jonny Frazer is sent off after hauling down Delaney and it's now ten v ten!


    Dungannon Swifts 2-1 Ballymena Utd

    Dungannon take all three points thanks to Paul McElroy's penalty and Ryan Mayse's third league goal of the season after Leroy Millar had given Ballymena the lead in the first half.

    Rodney McAree's men remain seventh but extend their lead over eighth-placed Ballymena to four points.

    Three home league wins in a row now for Dungannon, while Ballymena's shaky start to the campaign continues.


    Cliftonville 2-0 Warrenpoint

    Job done for Cliftonville as first-half goals from Jude Winchester and captain Chris Curran help them to three points over Warrenpoint. The Reds are in sixth place, two points behind Glentoran.

  14. CLOSE!

    Cliftonville 2-0 Warrenpoint

    Jay Donnelly has done everything to get on the score sheet this afternoon, but it's been in vain. His latest endeavour forward almost produces an excellent goal, cutting inside and whipping a right-footed drive just beyond the far post.

  15. RED CARD

    Ards 0-1 Glentoran

    Robbie McDaid has been sent off for Glentoran and it's a foolish dismissal, as the forward picks up his second yellow card for standing over an Ards free-kick to prevent it from being taken.


    Cliftonville 2-0 Warrenpoint

    Jay Donnelly slots past Parr but the flag is up for offside. Cliftonville are very comfortable as we approach stoppage-time.


    Dungannon Swifts 2-1 Ballymena Utd

    Paul McElroy almost scores his second of the game but Conor Brennan proves equal to the task, tipping the ball over the bar.

    Ballymena are then penalised for a back-pass by Jim Ervin but Dungannon's effort from the resulting indirect free-kick comes to nothing.

  18. Reds in control

    Cliftonville 2-0 Warrenpoint

    It's going to take a mighty effort from Warrenpoint at this point if they are to salvage a point. Matthew Tipton has signalled his intent by putting an extra man up front but that has only created more space for Cliftonville to operate in.

    Barry Gray's men reasonably comfortable at this stage as they close in on a third successive Premiership win.

  19. GOAL

    Cove Rangers 0-2 Crusaders

    Jamie Glackin finishes from close range to double Crusaders' lead in the Scottish Challenge Cup third round tie in Forfar.

    Looking good for the Irish League side at the moment.

  20. GOAL

    Dungannon Swifts 2-1 Ballymena Utd

    Ryan Mayse puts the Swifts ahead with a low driven finish on 67 minutes, just two minutes after McElroy equalised with his penalty. Former United player Ally Teggart the provider.

    This game has been turned on its head in the space of two or three minutes. Incredible turnaround in fortunes!

    Having seemingly been in control, Ballymena have it all to do now.
