Cliftonville ease past Carrick Rangers

Third-placed Cliftonville keep up the pressure on Crusaders and Linfield as they see off League Cup finalists Carrick Rangers 3-0 at Solitude.

David McDaid opened the scoring early on after he beat the offside trap, before setting Garrett up for a tap-in to make it 2-0 before the break.

Cliftonville’s third goal came from the penalty spot, however in controversial circumstances as Daniel Hughes was sent off for reacting to a challenge from Carrick goalkeeper Brian Neeson.
