  39. Big night for Lyttle

    Reds caretaker wants trophy success

    Cliftonville are back at Dungannon Swifts tonight, having won 1-0 there in the Premiership just last Saturday.

    The north Belfast boys have won the League Cup for the last three seasons, but the man who guided them to that hat-trick, Tommy Breslin, resigned a few weeks back.

    His assistant, Gerard Lyttle, is caretaker manager and would like to get the job on a permanent basis. Another win over Swifts would help his cause.
