  • Ards 1-2 Coleraine

Coleraine climbed to fifth in the Irish Premiership table after a 2-1 win over ten-man Ards at Clandeboye Park on Saturday.

After a goalless first half Darren McCauley volleyed in from Ian Parkhill's cross in the 64th minute.

Ards were back on terms within minutes when Joe McKinney's header just crept over the line, but Niall Currie's side were reduced to ten men with 12 minutes left when Emmett Friars was sent off for a second booking.

The Bannisters mustered a winner in injury time when Jamie McGonigle fired home to secure all three points for Orange Kearney's side.

  • Cliftonville 1-0 Carrick Rangers

Cliftonville edged a tight game against Carrick Rangers on Saturday, with substitute David McDaid netting the decisive goal.

McDaid pounced on a low cross from Stephen Garrett to net from close range in the 78th minute.

The goal was harsh on visiting goalkeeper Brian Neeson who had been in impressive form throughout.

The result sees Cliftonville move up to fourth in the table, whole Ards drop to eighth.

  • Glentoran 1-1 Ballinamallard United

Glentoran came from behind to salvage a 1-1 draw with Ballinamallard Utd at the Oval on Saturday.

Adam Lecky scored the opening goal three minutes before half-time when he latched onto a through ball before firing home through the legs of Elliott Morris.

However the game was all-square in the 56th minute when Ciaran Caldwell found the net with a low drive.

The stalemate has done little to change either team's fortunes, with Glentoran staying tenth while Ballinamallard remain ninth.
