Linfield beat Cliftonville to maintain title chase

Linfield beat Cliftonville 2-0 to keep up their pursuit of Irish Premiership leaders Crusaders.

A Stephen Lowry penalty and Andrew Waterworth's close-range finish in the first half clinched the win to put the second-placed Blues seven points behind the champions.

Jay Donnelly missed a penalty which means Cliftonville have failed to convert seven of their last eight spot-kicks.
