  1. That's all folks!

    Well, that's it from another day of dramatic pulsating action in the Irish Premiership as Coleraine consolidate their six-point lead at the top, with Crusaders keeping up the chase with a hard-fought triumph over Glenavon in a thriller at Mourneview Park.

    Linfield lost ground on the leaders as they could only draw with Warrenpoint thanks to the visitors' last-gasp equaliser, while Cliftonville move third thanks to their win over Glentoran, their 11th league win in 12 matches.

    Ballymena's comeback success over Carrick sees them move into the top six, while Dungannon and Ards played out only the third goal-less draw of the Premiership season to date.

    Look out for all the goals, action and reaction appearing on the BBC Sport NI website very soon and we'll be back in action ourselves next weekend for another series of fixtures in the run-up to Christmas.

    Ballymena Utd 3-1 Carrick Rangers

    Quote Message: Once Ballymena equalised and it went 1-1, the momentum was with them and we couldn't weather that out. We quickly conceded a couple more which was disappointing because we looked so in control of the game. from David McAlinden Carrick Rangers manager

  5. What they said

    Linfield 3-3 Warrenpoint Town

    Quote Message: We have been performing well in recent weeks but haven't had anything to show for it so I'm delighted for the players. They showed heart and character today at a tough venue to come to. I have a smile on my face this week as we have some reward for our good football. from Matthew Tipton Warrenpoint manager

  6. What they said

    Ballinamallard United 0-2 Coleraine

    Quote Message: We've got to build a club from back to front and that means it's clean sheets first and foremost. For me the big release is the first goal, at 0-0 at half time it's a slightly different game so once we've got that goal my mentality is that we have to be prepared to see this out at 1-0, and make no shame in seeing it out at 1-0 if we need to. from Oran Kearney Coleraine manager

  7. What they said

    Cliftonville 1-0 Glentoran

    Quote Message: There was nothing in the game. The two teams were cancelling each other out but an individual mistake from us has cost us a point. It was a very even game, with neither goalkeeper called into action much but we are going away with nothing. from Gary Haveron Glentoran manager

  8. What they said

    Glenavon 3-4 Crusaders

    Quote Message: It was a great game for the neutral, although I don't want to see three goals go in every week! Paul [Heatley] and Gavin [Whyte] were fantastic, they've got that in their game where they'll go and get you goals. Mourneview is a tough place to go, make no mistake about that, teams will come here and drop points so three points here is magnificent. from Sean O'Neill Crusaders goalkeeper

  9. What they said

    Cliftonville 1-0 Glentoran

    Quote Message: We're delighted. It was a very tightly contested game and we're delighted to get three points. It wasn't our best performance but on a day like today we're very happy to tick it off and move on. We have raised our game substantially from earlier on in the season, we've still got huge amounts of work to do. They know that and I know that. from Barry Gray Cliftonville Manager

    Quote Message: It was frantic out there - mayhem - and it was great to be a part of it. We're not getting carried away though, it's only three points and every game is important. Having said that it's a massive, massive win to come here and win against one of our rivals near the top. In the end, I thought we thoroughly deserved the win. We made a lacklustre start but then we put in a great performance right to the end. from Paul Heatley Crusaders goalscorer

    Linfield 3-3 Warrenpoint Town

    And breathe. What a brilliant game that was.

    Warrenpoint hit the front before a quickfire double from Linfield gave them the lead. Darren Murray equalised on the stroke of half time.

    It looked as if substitute Stephen Fallon had given the Blues the points but Warrenpoint refused to go away, and Martin Murray earned them a point from the penalty spot.
