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.
