  1. That's all folks!

    Over and out

    Well, it's time to catch our breath after a day of huge drama in the Irish League title race as Coleraine's stunning second-half comeback saw them draw level on points with Crusaders, who are still top of the pile on goal difference at the summit.

    The Crues will be disappointed to drop points on their home patch but still have two more home games to come - against champions Linfield and derby rivals Cliftonville, before going to Ballymena on the final day of the campaign.

    Coleraine have a derby of their own to contemplate next Saturday - against Ballymena at Ballycastle Road - before away days at Linfield and Glenavon.

    It's all to play for and a mouthwatering prospect.

    Meanwhile at the bottom things have got a lot more interesting as Ballinamallard's win over Warrenpoint sees them close to within two points of Carrick Rangers in the bid to avoid the drop.

    Keep an eye out for all the goals from today's games appearing on the BBC Sport NI website and whatever else you do, make sure you join us again next Saturday for hopefully more of the same.

    Bye til then.

  3. Baxter unaware of reason for Murray absence

    Crusaders 1-1 Glenavon

    Quote Message: I don't know (why Darren Murray was absent). I'm not commenting on it because it's not right to say because I don't know the circumstances. When you are preparing for big games and a man is on the teamsheet, it's frustrating but I'll find out and speak about it from there. from Stephen Baxter Crusaders manager

  5. What they said

    Crusaders 1-1 Glenavon

    Quote Message: If we had got the decisions today we could have had an extra two points and we would be sitting in a different position in the table - this could have a massive, massive impact on European football for us. from Gary Hamilton Glenavon manager

  6. What they said

    Crusaders 1-1 Glenavon

    Quote Message: We're slightly disappointed with our performance today. We dominated the game for the full 90 minutes but one lapse cost us. We had seven, eight, maybe nine chances and could have won easily but sometimes you don't get the rub of the green and credit to Glenavon for sticking at it. But the important thing is that we remain top with only three games to go. from Paul Heatley Crusaders goalscorer

  7. Kearney's delight

    Coleraine 2-1 Cliftonville

    Quote Message: We struggled to get going in the first half and I think we were maybe a bit lethargic after our efforts against Crusaders on Tuesday night. In the second half we worked tremendously hard and put together one of the best 45 minutes that we have played all season. I told the players at half-time that if it wasn't going to happen for us then at least make sure we go out on our knees. They gave it everything and credit to Jamie McGonigle for having the confidence to take the winning penalty. There is serious belief in that changing room but we won't be getting ahead of ourselves. from Oran Kearney Coleraine manager

    It's all over!

    Coleraine have come from a goal down at half time to keep their championship ambitions on target.

    Ecstatic scenes among the home players and supporters who know how important this result could prove.

    It's all square on points at the top of the table with three games each. What a title race we have on our hands!

  13. FULL-TIME

    Ballinamallard Utd 2-0 Warrenpoint Town

    A crucial victory for the Mallards - only their third of the league campaign - sees them close to within two points of Carrick Rangers in the battle to beat the drop.

  14. FULL-TIME

    Crusaders 1-1 Glenavon

    It's all over at Seaview and league leaders Crusaders have dropped two points at home for the second time in five days.

    Glenavon hit back with Andrew Mitchell's equaliser and then could have won it themselves.

    The home fans are urging on their side who have put together wave after wave of attack in this second half.
