Leaders Linfield beat Glenavon to stay four points clear

Linfield maintained their four-point lead at the top of Irish Premiership by beating Glenavon 4-3 at Windsor Park.

Glenavon had taken the lead on 34 minutes when Kyle Neill's corner went straight in at the far post.

Kirk Millar and Andrew Waterworth scored two to put Linfield 3-1 up with Kris Lindsay pulling one back.

Glenavon pulled level when Andy Kilmartin's shot was deflected by team-mate Eoin Bradley but Mark Haughey got the winner with a deflected header.

What they said

Linfield's Kirk Millar: "We made it hard for ourselves in the end but Mark Haughey dug us out with a header for the winner.

"We should have had the game won before that and we made it harder than it should have been.

"It was about time I hit the net. I had to make the run because you know a player of Niall Quinn's quality will deliver the ball.

"Andrew Waterworth is just a natural goalscorer and he gave us the edge in the first half."
