  • Dungannon Swifts 0-4 Linfield

Linfield remain four points behind league leaders Crusaders after a comprehensive 4-0 victory away to Dungannon Swifts on Saturday.

Jimmy Callagher claimed the opening goal as he netted from Ross Gaynor’s free kick, although there was a suggestion that Swifts defender Chris Hegarty may have gotten the final touch.

Jamie Mulgrew added a second with a deflected effort a minute later, before Niall Quinn fired a low angled drive past Andy Coleman three minutes before the break to help his side to a 3-0 half time lead.

Gaynor got on the scoresheet himself in the 54th minute to wrap up a comfortable win for David Healy’s side.
