Glenavon 2-2 Cliftonville

Here is the best of the action at Mourneview Park, Join us again tomorrow for four more matches from the Irish Premiership.

Cliftonville hit back to draw 2-2 away to Glenavon

FULL-TIME

Ballinamallard United 1-0 Portadown

The 10 men of Ballinamallard beat bottom club Portadown 1-0 thanks to a goal by Adam Lecky shortly after Ross Taheny had been sent off for a foul on Aaron Haire.

It's a massive result for the Mallards, pulling them away from the danger zone. But a disastrous result for Niall Currie's Portadown - and not great news for one from bottom Carrick Rangers either.

Ports pushing

Ballinamallard United 1-0 Portadown

The Ports are pressing for an equaliser with the extra man at Ballinamallard - but having no joy against a well organised home team. Running out of time....

FULL-TIME

Glenavon 2-2 Cliftonville

Glenavon will be disappointed to draw after surging in that 2-0 lead. But the point takes them back into the top half of the table, as they nudge ahead of Dungannon who play at Glentoran tomorrow.

HALF-TIME

Ballinamallard United 1-0 Portadown

Interval at Ferney Park with 10-man Mallards leading through Adam Lecky's strike. The bottom-placed Ports will be gutted if they come away from this crucial encounter with nothing.

RED CARD

Ballinamallard United 0-0 Portadown

Ballinamallard's Ross Taheny is sent-off for as foul on Portadown's Aaron Haire - but that's only half the story. The tackle was right on the line and Portadown were pleading with a penalty. Referee Lee Tavinder awards a free on the edge of the box and shows a red card to Ryan McConnell. Wrong man!

The ref quickly corrects the case of mistaken identity and Taheny is given his marching orders instead.
