Visitors Carrick beat Ards

  • Ards 0-4 Carrick

Carrick Rangers came away from Ards with a comprehensive Danske Bank Premiership win.

Jonathan Smith fired Carrick ahead after just eight minutes, finishing after a neat turn in the penalty area.

Ards needed a strong start to the second half, but they made, from their own point of view, the worst one possible.

Just three minutes after the re-start, Paddy McNally volleyed in a second for Carrick, after the north Down side failed to deal with a corner.

On 54 minutes, Carrick took a vice-like grip on the game when Lee Chapman netted to make it 3-0.

Ards' afternoon just got worse as Rangers netted a fourth, Eamonn Scannell on-hand to score.

Coleraine saw another chance to keep the pace in the Irish Premiership title race slip by with a 1-1 draw against Glenavon.

Gareth McConaghie had an inviting chance for the Bannsiders just shy of the half-hour mark.

He met Darren McCauley's corner, but McConaghie headed just wide.

Coleraine were then awarded a penalty on the stroke of half-time. But Johnny Tuffey saved Harkin's effort.

The Lurgan Blues took the lead in the second half, when Andy Hall rose highest at the back-post to plant a header into the net.

Coleraine levelled on the hour however, Eoin Bradley with the free-kick.

Boss Gary Hamilton was then sent to the stands for Glenavon.

Mark Sykes was dismissed for Glenavon as they ended the match with 10-men.
