  1. Over and out

    Big wins for top two

    That's all from us on a day when the Premiership's top two teams, Coleraine and Cliftonville matched each other's result with 4-0 wins over Glenavon and Warrenpoint Town.

    Ballymena United's recent run of poor form continued with a 2-1 home defeat by Carrick, while Glentoran became the latest side to find Institute a different proposition under Sean Connor as the sides battled out a 1-1 draw at the Brandywell.

    We'll have updates and a match report from Monday night's clash between Larne and Crusaders, along with all the action from next Saturday's Premiership programme.

    Until then, it's bye for now.

  3. Point in 'dire need' of January reinforcements - Gray

    Cliftonville 4-0 Warrenpoint Town

    Quote Message: Cliftonville are a team I'm familiar with so we knew what we were going to be up against. We just don't have strength in depth at the moment to compete with teams like Cliftonville. There are pieces from the game that we'll take heart from but it's safe to say we're in dire need of reinforcements come January. We're not there yet. We've got the top five clubs in the next five weeks so the likelihood of any shock results out of those games is slim. There's a massive lack of experience in the squad and it's hard on them and it's hard to enjoy. from Barry Gray Warrenpoint Town boss

  4. Glens 'bitterly disappointed' with two dropped points - Millar

    Institute 1-1 Glentoran

    Quote Message: We're bitterly disappointed. I thought we started off really fresh, we scored and then took the foot off the pedal. I thought we dominated the second half, but that's football, that's the way it goes. If you want to win in this league, you need to play for 90 minutes. It's two points dropped after a good run. It's a hard way to learn a lesson but we can't fault the lads. from Paul Millar Glentoran assistant manager

  5. Currie hails 'unexpected' win

    Ballymena United 1-2 Carrick Rangers

    Quote Message: The boys have been fantastic. Coming here and getting three points, although you're hopeful, you're not expecting it so I'm over the moon. I thought our first half performance was fantastic and we should have been going in comfortable but we continue to miss good chances. The boys threw their bodies on the line in the last 15 minutes and they were absolutely magnificent. Thankfully nobody seems to be picking up injuries so we're in a really good place at the minute. from Niall Currie Carrick Rangers manager

  7. It's a results business - Kearney

    Coleraine 4-0 Glenavon

    Quote Message: We have to give credit to Glenavon who played very well and caused us problems in the first half. But football is a results business and we have to be happy with our win. We are not looking too far ahead and have a number of difficult games coming up, but we are on a good run of form. from Oran Kearney Coleraine manager

  8. Players have belief - Connor

    Institute 1-1 Glentoran

    Quote Message: It'll become a good point when we play the teams around us and we start to pick up three, but right now it's a really satisfying point. I thought we were the better side in the first half and apart from their goal I thought we defended really well. They came out with a real tempo and urgency in the second half, I think we dragged that out of them and we showed some real resilience. I think the players are playing with a belief in what we are doing. from Sean Connor Institute manager

  9. 'I just had to go for it' - McDermott on wonder goal

    Cliftonville 4-0 Warrenpoint Town

    Quote Message: The ball sat down nicely after I took a touch. I saw the keeper off his line and just had to go for it. You don't get many of them opportunities. I've caught it really cleanly and had a feeling it was going to go in because the keeper reacted late. I don't know how to celebrate because I don't score many goals and I'll probably not score another goal like it. It's a great feeling and it's funny because Patrick McClean is one of my good mates and it happened to him a few weeks ago against Larne. I probably feel the way he felt then. I'll let him decide which one was better. from Conor McDermott Cliftonville defender

    Ballymena Utd 1-2 Carrick Rangers

    After six agonising minutes of injury time, Raymond Crangle's final whistle brings delight for Carrick as they claim a priceless three points.


    Coleraine 4-0 Glenavon

    Comfortable in the end for Coleraine as a James McLaughlin double helped them to a 4-0 home win.

    Glenavon were well in the game in the first half but struggled after Daniel Larmour was shown a straight red card in the 40th minute, with the score at 1-0, for a dangerous tackle on McLaughlin.

    Caolan Marron put through his net for the opener and Ben Doherty rounded off the scoring with a penalty.

    The Bannsiders maintain their one-point lead at the top of table.


    Institute 1-1 Glentoran

    Ballymena United, Larne, Crusaders and now Glentoran.

    That's another massive point for Institute, who were battered by the Glens in the second half but stood firm.

    With Glenavon on the end of another heavy defeat, Sean Connor's side are now only three points off the Lurgan Blues.

    Glentoran will probably feel like they two dropped points at a soaking Brandywell, but they're creating plenty of chances and won't be the last side to struggle to beak down Stute's sturdy defence.


    Cliftonville 4-0 Warrenpoint Town

    Goals by Mark McKee, Conor McDermott, Joe Gormley and Ryan Curran give Cliftonville an easy win over Warrenpoint at Solitude.

    Not much to shout about for Barry Gray on his return to north Belfast.

    Paddy McLaughlin will be much happier, however, after watching his side cruise to sixth league win on the trot to remain second and just a point adrift of Coleraine.

  14. Addis off-target

    Ballymena Utd 1-2 Carrick Rangers

    Jonny Addis heads over from a Steven McCullough corner.

    Ballymena have created several presentable opportunities but their finishing has been wasteful.

  15. 'Pen' Doherty strikes again

    Coleraine 4-0 Glenavon

    Nedas Maciulaitis brings Eoin Wearen down in the box.

    Then Ben Doherty does what Ben Doherty does from the penalty spot.

    That's his seventh successful spot-kick of the season.

  16. What's in a name?

    Ballymena Utd 1-2 Carrick Rangers

    It's a Premiership debut for Carrick for substitute Theodore Develan Wilson III - an American striker who signed from Slovenian club NK Krka in the summer.

    Thankfully, he goes under the much easier to manage name of Sachem!

  17. Should have done better!

    Cliftonville 4-0 Warrenpoint Town

    Maguire spurns a golden chance to complete the rout as he produces a feeble shot after being put through one-on-one with Turker, who was happy to smother the ball having picked it out of his net four times already this afternoon.

    Maguire should have buried that.

  18. 'Point down to 10 men

    Cliftonville 4-0 Warrenpoint Town

    It goes from bad to worse for the visitors as they are reduced to 10 men, but not because of a red card.

    Having already used all three substitutions, Gavin Smith limps off and 'Point must see out the game with a numerical disadvantage.

  19. Lovely pass, lovely finish

    Coleraine 4-0 Glenavon

    Jamie Glackin with the clever assist and James McLaughlin does it justice.

    Quality all round.

    Institute 1-1 Glentoran

    How are Glentoran not ahead?

    Cameron Stewart's header is cleared off the line at the back post and Elvio van Overbeek then hits the woodwork from the resulting corner.

    Glentoran are huffing and puffing but Institute's house stands firm.
