  5. What they said

    Quote Message: I'm proud as punch of my players - they gave me everything today. To go down to 10 men after 15 minutes and see out the remaining 75 to get a draw against a super side like Coleraine was a great achievement. In the end, I thought we shaded it a bit but we just couldn't get a winner. Having said that, if you had offered me a draw after 15 minutes I would certainly have taken it. from Gary Hamilton Glenavon manager

  6. What they said

    Glenavon 2-2 Coleraine

    Quote Message: Glenavon are flying high and scoring goals for fun so we knew it would be tough, especially away from home. I don't think the red card had that much impact on the game as Andy Mitchell is a very accomplished forward and nearly did the work of two men up front. I'm just disappointed that we were 2-1 up with 10 minutes to go and couldn't hold on." from Oran Kearney Coleraine manager

  7. Baxter pleased with dominant Crues

  8. What they said

    Ballinamallard Utd 0-6 Linfield

    Quote Message: I thought we were good today. The players' workrate, intensity and tempo were bang on from the start, as was out attitude. We usually find it more difficult here but the players have got us back on track and it's all about how we progress from here. from David Healy Linfield manager

  9. What they said

    Ballinamallard Utd 0-6 Linfield

    Quote Message: We were well beaten, totally over-run. We looked leggy and tired and never got started. We had too many players who couldn't compete and that isn't good enough. We put in a massive effort against Coleraine on Tuesday and we had to put people out today who probably weren't fit. It's been a punishing seven days for the players, We just don't have the squad for three games in such a short space of time. from Gavin Dykes Ballinamallard United manager

  10. What they said

    Warrenpoint Town 1-2 Dungannon Swifts

    Quote Message: We started brilliantly but didn't show the necessary application thereafter and couldn't cut out the mistakes. I thought we had turned the corner last week but this is a results business. I'm tired with people saying how hard we have tried. We need to buck up our ideas and buck them up quickly. from Matthew Tipton Warrenpoint Town boss

  11. What they said

    Ards 2-4 Crusaders

    Quote Message: It was an interesting finish to the game with three goals coming in the last five minutes, but I thought we were comfortable and dominated from start to finish. The two goals they got at the end were the only times they were in our box I think. They dug in but we had too much quality and got the goals at the right time. Paul Heatley's goal was great, he ghosts into so many great positions and that's why he's such a great player. Our goals have certainly been flowing but we need to work on things defensively. I think we need to rotate a bit for the Irn-Bru cup tie against Dundee United next week. We have one or two players carrying knocks so we have to be sensible about that, especially with a clash against Linfield on the horizon. from Stephen Baxter Crusaders manager

  12. What they said

    Warrenpoint Town 1-2 Dungannon Swifts

    Quote Message: It was a very hard-fought win as this isn't an easy place to come. There was a bit of a breeze and it's not the best of pitches so we had to mix our game up a bit and I thought we had Johnny Lafferty capable of doing that. I was happy with us at half-time but we just needed to do that little bit more in the second half and put them under a little bit more pressure. In the end we got our just rewards. from Rodney McAree Dungannon Swifts manager

  13. What they said

    Ards 2-4 Crusaders

    Quote Message: I can't fault my team's work rate or enthusiasm but individual errors cost us and you cant' expect to do that against a top side like Crusaders and get away with it. There were a couple of mistakes that put us on the back foot but we kept at it. It's about consistency moving forward now, we have had a tough run of games but we've done reasonably well getting through it. Now we have to start picking up points in the league that I think our performances have been warranting. from Colin Nixon Ards boss

    Glenavon 2-2 Coleraine

    A point apiece for the top two sides in the top flight.

    Coleraine remain unbeaten in the league after 14 fixtures and they remain eight points ahead of the chasing Lurgan Blues.

    McGonigle and Carson for Coleraine, Sykes and Clingan with a penalty for Gary Hamilton's men, who had James Singleton sent-off in the opening period.

  15. What they said

    Cliftonville 3-0 Carrick Rangers

    Quote Message: I would say it's always difficult coming here. We were missing six or seven key players but I felt our attitude and effort was great, I can't fault them for that. We knew it was going to be tough and it's not helped when you're coming here under-strength and we found ourselves in a difficult situation. Results like today won't define our season. The first goal was a bit of a killer, we could have cleared the ball which was disappointing and there was a bit of sloppiness involved in their second goal. from David McAlinden Carrick Rangers boss

  17. What they said

    Cliftonville 3-0 Carrick

    Quote Message: It's another clean sheet and we scored three good goals. It was a professional performance and I'm pleased with how we played. There was quality work rate across the park and we were comfortable after going two goals up. We managed and played the game particularly well today, we got the first goal early and that gave us something to build on. The players have conducted themselves exceptionally - lots of positives to take from the display. We didn't dwell on the defeat during the week but we didn't make things difficult for ourselves today. They've taken our instructions on board and I'm definitely seeing an improvement. We still have a lot of work to do but I'm happy where we are right now. from Barry Gray Cliftonville manager

    Warrenpoint Town 1-2 Dungannon Swifts

    Dungannon end a run of three straight league defeats by coming from a goal down to beat Warrenpoint.


    Ballinamallard Utd 0-6 Linfield

    Linfield trounce the Mallards, who remain rooted to the bottom of the table.


    Ards 2-4 Crusaders

    After a crazy end to the game, Crusaders emerge as 4-2 winners and take all three points back to North Belfast. Two goals from Gavin Whyte, a beautiful Paul Heatley strike and a late David Cushley effort is enough for Stephen Baxter's men, despite late strikes by Guillame Keke and Kyle Cherry.
