Linfield rout Ports to go third

Linfield heaped more misery on bottom side Portadown with a 4-1 victory over the struggling mid-Ulster side at Windsor Park.

Ross Gaynor opened the scoring after 25 minutes with a fine strike after being set up by Andrew Waterworth, and Mark Stafford added a second five minutes into the second half with a header that the match officials ruled to have just crossed the line, much to the frustration of the Ports players.

Birthday boy Paul Smyth got on the score sheet midway through the second half with a cute close-range finish, before Robbie Garrett briefly stemmed the flow with a fine effort from distance for the Ports.

That goal proved to be a mere consolation though, as Aaron Burns headed home Linfield’s fourth goal four minutes from time.
