Cliftonville scored two late goals to come home handsomely against Dungannon Swifts 3-0.

Joe Gormley came close for the Reds, as he picked up the ball on the edge of the box, but he drilled his 13th minute effort just wide.

Ryan Harpur had the best chance for the Swifts in the first 45 minutes, but he hit the ball straight at goalkeeper Brian Neeson when one-on-one.

Gormley thought he'd broken the deadlock early in the second period but the goal was ruled out for offside.

The home side broke through to take the lead, Ross Lavery scoring. The Reds doubled that advantage when Barry Gray's side scored a wonderful curing effort from Jay Donnelly from the edge of the box into the net.

And Cliftonville added another in the 94th minute - Stephen Garrett scoring. Further salt was rubbed into the wound by Heggarty's own goal.

The home side missed a number of good early chances with Daniel Hughes and Rory Donnelly both guilty of being wasteful in front of goal.

Aaron Traynor was sent off with fifteen minutes to play, leaving Oran Kearney's table-toppers with a difficult finale.

But they held on for what could be a crucial point, Rory Donnelly missing a late glorious chance for the Reds. Cliftonville jump above Linfield into fourth.

Cliftonville secure narrow win

  • Ards 0-1 Cliftonville

Cliftonville secured a narrow win at Ards in the Danske Bank Premiership.

Jay Donnelly fired Cliftonville ahead when a ball into the box was not properly cleared by the Ards defence and Donnelly took full advantage to finish.

Ards came close to finding an equalizer in the second half as Cherry's close-range effort was denied by a late McGovern block.

Cliftonville looked dangerous at times on the flanks in the early stages of the second half, but too often there was no one there to take advantage of the final ball.

Elebert came close to scoring for the north Down side from a corner, but saw his header rebound off the crossbar.

Kyle Cherry then got beyond the Cliftonville defence, but couldn't keep his effort down as it sailed well over the bar.
