So 2017 will end with Coleraine's lead down to two points as the Crues continue to close in on Oran Kearney's Bannsiders.
Who knows whether we will look back on the final round of fixtures in 2017 as being a crucial day at the end of the campaign?
One thing we can say is that Linfield are surely now out of contention to retain their title after suffering a seventh defeat of the campaign. The Blues are 16 points behind Coleraine and also 14 adrift of the Crues.
We hope one and all of you enjoy the New Year festivities before joining us again on Monday afternoon at 14:00 GMT as Coleraine host Linfield with Crusaders travelling to Ballinamallard United and Carrick Rangers welcoming Dungannon Swifts.
