Back on Saturday

Thanks for following the action with us tonight. We're back on Saturday with another full programme of six Irish Premiership matches.

Match reaction

Linfield 1-1 Coleraine

Even though it was a horrendous decision, I still think we should have dealt with the corner the way we had been doing all night. However, I cannot accept that decision tonight, and that it why I was so animated. The referee was not watching and the linesman was obviously not watching.

Match reaction

Ballymena United 3-3 Glenavon

There was tremendous character shown by the boys, at 3-0 down a lot of teams would be dead and buried. But the coaching staff instill it into us that we are never beaten.

Match reaction

Dungannon Swifts 1-2 Ards

There were a lot of brave boys out there tonight. Until they scored, we were not under real pressure but when Burns scored that changed everything. Then when Joe got sent off it was the Alamo for 15 minutes. It was a real test of character.

Match reaction

Portadown 2-1 Ballinamallard United

I am absolutely delighted for the supporters and everyone connected with the club. It has been a hard summer and we have had a lot of negative publicity over the last couple of weeks. When we conceded the equaliser we were up against it for a while, but Mark McAllister popped up with our second goal.
