  1. That's all, folks!

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    Right, who's ready to do it all again tomorrow?

    With Linfield dropping points, Saturday's action provides Cliftonville, Coleraine and Crusaders the perfect opportunity to stretch their legs at the top.

    Larne host table-topping Cliftonville, while Coleraine face Carrick Rangers and Crusaders travel to the revitalised Warrenpoint Town.

    Elsewhere, Glentoran take on Dungannon Swifts and Stute face Ballymena United.

    It should be good, see you then!

  2. It was disappointing - Healy

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    Quote Message: It was poor. We had numerous opportunities and Jonny Tuffey, as expected, made numerous saves. But I don't think we punish teams when we get in behind them. We didn't pick the right pass and we didn't have the right finish tonight, which is the frustrating thing. from David Healy Linfield manager

  3. You don't lose the brain, just the legs - Hamilton

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    Quote Message: I'm just delighted for the boys. They've worked so hard over the last few weeks and we're starting to look like ourselves on the pitch. It's not too often that we keep clean sheets but I'm delighted. I keep telling these young lads that they need to be bang on it all the time. In my opinion, Linfield will go on to win the league. They've got Shayne Lavery up front and Andrew Waterworth is on the bench, who any other team in the league would take. I feel like I'm 71, never mind playing 71 minutes. If you have players like that around you, along as the quality is there to your feet, then you have a chance as a player. You don't lose the brain but you do lose the legs. Thankfully there weren't too many ball that I had to run for. from Gary Hamilton Glenavon player-manager

  4. We can beat anyone - Daniels

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    Quote Message: We know we have it in us. If we stay solid then we can beat any team in the league. We had our backs against the wall at times in the second half but we held in there for each other. I feel good and we've lacked a bit of creativity at times, so I want to help out and express myself. Every time Gary (Hamilton) has played he has done a job for us. When you are a player of his calibre then you don't lose it. Maybe he doesn't have it in his legs anymore but his hold-up play was fantastic. I'm delighted that we got the three points and we have to try and climb the table now. from Josh Daniels Man of the Match, Glenavon

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    If Glenavon keep playing like that then they should be storming up the league table. What a win for Gary Hamilton's side.

    A missed opportunity for Linfield? With their games in hand, David Healy said tonight was the perfect chance to put pressure on the front-runners, but the Lurgan Blues were well worth their three points in the end.

    Robert Garrett will want to claim the winner against his former side, but it was probably drifting wide before it bounced off Jimmy Callacher's leg and nestled into the net.

    However they all count and tonight belongs to Glenavon!

  6. Post update

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    From one winger to another, Tim McCann names Josh Daniels as his Man of the Match.

    To be honest, Gary Hamilton, Andrew Doyle, Jonny Tuffey or Daniels would all have been worthy of it tonight. Glenavon have been superb.

    There's going to be three additional minutes.

  7. Post update

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    Shayne Lavery is the last player back for Linfield. Jimmy Callacher is the furthest forward.

    Good old formations are out the window at this point.

    We love to see it!

  8. Chances at both ends!

  9. Post update

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    10 minutes to go. Will we see any more goals?

    Conor McCloskey and Stephen Murray are on for the hosts in place of Kyle Beggs and Andrew Mitchell.

  10. Post update

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    Josh Daniels is the next to test Rohan Ferguson but the keeper again comes out on top. The winger didn't really catch that one as he would have liked, but Ferguson still had to do his job.

    Both stoppers have been in top form tonight.

  11. Post update

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    Gary Hamilton has lasted 71 minutes. The player-manager, who has been brilliant, takes himself off and Eoin Wearen comes on in his place.

    Talk about rolling back the years!

  12. Post update

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield!

    Bastien Hery throws himself to the ground in the area but Andrew Davey isn't interested.

    The lack of appeals from the Linfield players probably tell you all you need to know about that one.


    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    Bastien Hery strides forward and lets fly from 25 yards. It bobbles just in front of Tuffey, who manages to push the ball away when it looked like it was about to find the bottom corner.

    Another superb stop from the keeper.

  14. CLOSE!

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    Glenavon are nearly the masters of their own downfall. Caolan Marron nearly heads the ball into his own net but Rhys Marshall is there to save the day and clear it off the line.

    That would have been a very cruel goal to concede, but the Lurgan Blues survive.

  15. Post update

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    Both keepers are having a stormer here. Ferguson pulls off an excellent stop to keep out Mitchell.

    Glenavon are having more joy down the flanks since Linfield's formation change at the interval.

  16. What a save!

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    A match-winning save?

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    Kyle Beggs, who has been pretty impressive, plays in a delicious cross for Josh Daniels, who cushions a header for Andrew Mitchell.

    The big striker swivels and hits it towards goal but a combination of Callacher and Ferguson manage to keep it out.

    We have a feeling that there are more goals to come here.


    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    What. A.Save.

    Jimmy Callacher's header looks destined for the bottom corner but Jonny Tuffey leaps to his right and pulls off a superb stop to keep it out.

    How big a boost is Tuffey's return for Glenavon?

  19. More of the same?

    Glenavon 1-0 Linfield

    We're back underway.

    Andrew Waterworth is on for Mark Stafford. No messing about from David Healy.
