Europa League play-off: Cliftonville beat Glentoran in dramatic final

Cliftonville seal a place in next season's Europa League with a dramatic 3-2 win over Glentoran at Solitude.

Jay Donnelly nodded the hosts ahead but Glentoran replied with a Jay Magee header and Curtis Allen free-kick.

Cliftonville keeper Conor Devlin and Glentoran's Chris Lavery were sent-off for fighting and the Glens were down to nine when Barry Holland was red-carded.

The Reds equalised with a James Knowles penalty and then got an 80th-minute David McDaid winner which will be worth at least £160,000 in Uefa qualification payments.
