See how leaders Crusaders snatched a late win over Ards to extend their lead at the top of he table to seven points
The best bits from today's match at Mourneview Park.
We have to take full responsibility as players, we know where we went wrong and why we did not go on and win the game. I am bitterly disappointed for the Linfield fans because we desperately wanted to do it for them today. But we have to be upbeat and positive going into the next game because we know there is along way to go. That is what we will do because we are all accountable.
We were the better side in the first 25 minutes and I was bitterly disappointed to go in 1-0 down at half-time. We got the equaliser and were unlucky not to get the win. But they put a lot of long balls into our box and our boys defended well. So, all in all, maybe a draw was a fair result.
This is a massive result for us as we reduce the gap at the top. It was a big incentive as we wanted to get in amongst Crusaders and Linfield and to do that today was fantastic. We had a game plan and had Linfield watched and knew how they set up. The boys executed the plan perfectly and to see a young lad come on and score the winner was fantastic.
Honours even at Mourneview Park. The Lurgan Blues had James Singleton sent off for a second yellow card offence in the closing stages.
Cliftonville inflict a first home league defeat on Linfield for a year and with it put a dent in the Blues' title hopes, while rekindling their own ambitions of mounting a championship challenge. Ross Lavery is the toast of the red half of north Belfast tonight.
You have to feel sorry for Ards as they fall to a late Crusaders winner for the second time this season. On 4 September it was Jordan Owens who headed in to snatch a 1-0 win at Clandeboye. Today at Seaview, it was David Cushley's 20-yard shot which gave the champions a victory they barely deserved. It was only the second shot the leaders had on target all afternoon.
