  1. Final whistle

    That's all from us at the end of another enthralling day of action in the Irish Premiership.

    Coleraine and Crusaders certainly lived up to their 'match of the day' billing as they thrashed out a thrilling 3-3 draw, while there were important wins for Cliftonville, Glenavon, Ards and Warrenpoint Town

    We'll be back again next Saturday for the next chapter in a dramatic race for the title - please join us then.

  2. Winter break?

    Cliftonville 3-0 Dungannon Swifts

    Quote Message: I wouldn't be a fan of restructuring for a winter break. It's an easy answer to say "let's move matches to the summer." It might solve some problems but create others. There is lots to consider - thankfully it's not my decision. from Barry Gray Cliftonville manager

  3. What they said

    Linfield 2-3 Glenavon

    Quote Message: That's not the team performance, the effort or the attitude that I need or that I want. It's not very often that I am critical of the players publicly, but we were so poor today sometimes there's just no hiding it. It's another game that we've been leading and we've been turned over. If you make the mistakes we did you're not going to win football matches at any level. There's a disappointed dressing room that's for sure. from David Healy Linfield manager

  4. What they said

    Cliftonville 3-0 Dungannon Swifts

    Quote Message: Today was about getting back to winning ways. We're now looking forward to Friday to making it two wins in a row. We have a tough three or four weeks coming up, and it's time for us to deliver. from Barry Gray Cliftonville Manager

  5. What they said

    Warrenpoint Town 1-0 Ballinamallard Utd

    Quote Message: It's a massive three points for us but Ballinamallard made it hard for us. We clung on, to be honest, in the second half. In the first half we cut them open at will but in the second half, nerves kicked in. We didn't really take the sting out of the game by dominating possession but whether we were the better team or not, we got the three points. from Matthew Tipton Ballinamallard United manager

  6. What they said

    Warrenpoint Town 1-0 Ballinamallard Utd

    Quote Message: We were the better side in the second half, even when we went down to 10 men, but it just wouldn't fall for us. First half we weren't good enough and I had a few words but the sending off didn't affect the game - we still went very positive with two up front. On another day we would have got something but you need the wee breaks when you're at the bottom of the table. from Gavin Dykes Ballinamallard United manager

  7. Glenavon's never say die attitude evident today - Mitchell

    Linfield 2-3 Glenavon

    Quote Message: It's a huge result. To come here, to Linfield, and get three points is massive. We know what we have in our dressing room, it's a never say die attitude. That was typified today when we went behind early doors but we came back and thoroughly deserved our three points today. from Andrew Mitchell Glenavon striker

  8. What they said

    Ards 1-0 Ballymena Utd

    Quote Message: It's been a long time since we've felt like this on a Saturday afternoon. It's one of those days where we're bitterly disappointed with the result but delighted with the performance. I can't fault my players. We probably should have had at least one penalty, maybe two, but when Matthew Shevlin rattles the bar and post (in injury time) you know it's not going to be your day. I have said to the players that they will not play anywhere near as well on another day and win. from David Jeffrey Ballymena United manager

  10. What they said

    Coleraine 3-3 Crusaders

    Quote Message: What a game - it had everything. Two very good teams on a heavy pitch and we went for it from the word go. For a three-four minute spell we hit self-destruct but at half-time we still thought we were in the game as we've a lot of firepower. People have asked if we had the mettle and attitude for a title race and we put in a terrific performance in the second half. In games with little in it then when it's 11 v 10 you have to make it county and thankfully we did. from Oran Kearney Coleraine manager

  11. What they said

    Ards 1-0 Ballymena Utd

    Quote Message: The boys worked very hard today. Each to a man were excellent, totally committed. We've been on the wrong end of a few results against Ballymena this season so it was important for us to get a win. The commitment, attitude and professionalism of the players is excellent at the minute and we just want to keep it going. from Colin Nixon Ards manager

    Irish Premiership FT

    Linfield 2-3 Glenavon

    Andrew Waterworth's late goal is no more than a consolation as Glenavon take the points.

    Linfield took the lead after three minutes when Kurtis Byrne fired home a lovely volley. That was as good as it got for the Blues though, as Glenavon were level five minutes later through Simon Kelly.

    Andrew Mitchell's goal at the start of the second half put the visitors in front and Marc Griffin sealed the deal with a close range finish. Waterworth pulled one back in the last minute of stoppage time but there was no time for David Healy's men to salvage a point.

    Glenavon are now six points ahead of Linfield and gain ground on the two teams above them.

  14. GOAL

    Linfield 2-3 Glenavon

    Waterworth strikes in injury time. He is put through on goal and finishes well, his low strike goes in off the post.


    Cliftonville 3-0 Dungannon Swifts

    Back to winning ways for Cliftonville, who dominated the second half at Solitude and put Dungannon away with goals from Lavery and Donnelly, with a Hegarty own goal in the final minute.

  16. Great save by Tuffey

    Linfield 1-3 Glenavon

    Jonathan Tuffey hasn't had much to do in this half but he has denied Achille Campion from close range, coming off his line quickly and smothering the shot.

  17. GOAL

    Cliftonville 3-0 Dungannon Swifts

    Chris Hegarty will get credited with an own goal as the ball squirms between his legs after Garrett's effort and ends up in the goal.


    Coleraine 3-3 Crusaders

    A wonderful, pulsating clash between the top two comes to an end. The dismissal of Crues captain Colin Coates, when the visitors led 3-1, proved crucial as Coleraine fought back to secure a deserved draw. So it's as you were at the Premiership summit with Crusaders remaining a point clear with 13 games left.


    Ards 1-0 Ballymena Utd

    Reece Glendinning's first half goal gives Ards victory in a low-key encounter.

    Matthew Shevlin came close to an injury time equaliser when his effort came off the upright but it was a disappointing day for Ballymena ahead of their County Antrim Shield final clash with Crusaders on Tuesday night.
