Reds face tough test against Ports

Irish Premiership leaders Cliftonville face a tough test against Portadown as they aim to defend their seven-point lead at the top of the table.

Reds midfielder Barry Johnston says he believes his club has a panel capable of competing with the likes of Linfield, while Liam Boyce says the north Belfast team know they are capable of scoring goals.

Portadown defender Ross Redman admits his side have under-performed so far this season.
