  1. Over and out

    Just the 16 goals across the four matches this evening. Hopefully there will be more of the same at the weekend when the Irish League action resumes.

    Larne will be looking to bounce back from their defeat by Coleraine when they host Glentoran in our TV game live on BBC Two on Friday night. The two sides have plenty of history.

    In-form Coleraine take on Crusaders in Saturday's fixtures while Cliftonville host Glenavon, Linfield take on Dungannon Swifts and Warrenpoint Town visit Portadown at Shamrock Park.

    Then, to round out the weekend, Carrick Rangers host Ballymena United and you can watch that one live on the BBC Sport website and on BBC iPlayer form 17:30 GMT.

    See you then!

    A missed opportunity for Crusaders? Lee Bonis rescued a point for the Ports.

    Glentoran 2-0 Carrick Rangers

    Robbie McDaid's solo effort seals the three points after Jay Donnelly scored before seeing red against Carrick Rangers.


    Larne 1-2 Coleraine

    It's all over! A massive three points for Coleraine, who move up to fourth.

    Larne are not pleased with referee Shane Andrews as they feel Johnny McMurray should have been awarded a penalty in stoppage time.

    But it's game over - and Coleraine will gladly take all three points back up to Ballycastle Road.


    Cliftonville 4-3 Linfield

    What a match at Solitude.

    Cliftonville come out on top, twice coming from behind to edge a seven-goal thriller.

    Proper Irish League stuff in north Belfast.

    Conor McMenamin the man-of-the-match as he grabbed two goals for the Reds.

  10. GOAL

    Cliftonville 4-3 Linfield

    Kirk Millar pulls one back for the Blues with a delicious free-kick.

    They couldn't, could they?


    Portadown 2-2 Crusaders

    That late goal earns a well-merited point for Matthew Tipton's side after a spirited display.

    The point looks to be enough to take Crusaders into second position but Stephen Baxter will be disappointed at seeing two precious points disappear so late on.

  12. GOAL

    Cliftonville 4-2 Linfield

    Ryan Curran looks to have sealed the Cliftonville win with their fourth goal.

  13. GOAL

    Portadown 2-2 Crusaders

    Late drama as Portadown force an equaliser.

    Ben Tilney's wicked inswinging free kick flicks off the head of Lee Bonis but the last touch may well have come from a Crusaders defender.

    Either way, it's all square at Shamrock Park.

  14. McMenamin levels for the hosts

    Cliftonville 3-2 Linfield

    He took it well, didn't he.

    Larne 1-2 Coleraine

    Oh, that would have been a stunning goal! Jeff Hughes' punt forward is glanced on by John Herron.

    Johnny McMurray uses his chest to control the ball before sending an imaginative looping volley towards goal.

    Gareth Deane is well beaten, but the ball bounces off the top of the crossbar and out for a goal-kick.

  17. Mulgrew restores Linfield's lead

    Cliftonville 3-2 Linfield

    Big slice of luck about this one, but Jamie Mulgrew will not have cared.

  18. GOAL

    Cliftonville 3-2 Linfield

    Conor McMenamin gives Cliftonville the lead for the first time tonight.

    It was a carbon copy of his first goal a few moments earlier, as he collected a long pass and cut inside Conor Pepper to fire home at the near post.

  19. GOAL

    Larne 1-2 Coleraine

    Albert Watson atones for his earlier error with a thumping header from a corner to give Larne a lifeline!

    Sixteen minutes remaining at Inver Park.

  20. GOAL

    Glentoran 2-0 Carrick Rangers

    Another close shave in defence, another goal at the other end. 10-man Glentoran double their lead through Robbie McDaid!

    This time Dayle Coleing saved Caolan Loughran's 35-yard free-kick and Luke McCullough had to be alert to clear Jordan Jenkins' rebound off the line.

    Glentoran go up the other end and McDaid rifles a finish beyond Aaron Hogg with 12 minutes remaining. Is that enough for the three points?
