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.
