  1. That's a wrap!

    See you next week

    And the curtain comes down on another thrilling Saturday afternoon in the Irish Premiership.

    Linfield are today's big winners, their 4-2 defeat of Belfast rivals Cliftonville enough to reclaim top spot from Ballymena United, who are one point above third-placed Glenavon following the Lurgan Blues' 3-1 victory over Ards.

    A last-gasp Rory Patterson penalty saw Crusaders edge Institute 3-2 at Seaview while Warrenpoint Town beat Coleraine 2-1 to remain two points clear of Dungannon Swifts, who also clinched three much-needed points after beating Glentoran 1-0.

    You can watch Coleraine v Newry City on BBC Two NI from 19:30 GMT on Friday evening and we'll be back with live text commentary on next week's five-game Saturday programme as Linfield and Ballymena meet at the Ballymena Showgrounds in a mouthwatering top-two showdown.

  2. McFall labels Glens 'shocking'

    Dungannon Swifts 1-0 Glentoran

    Quote Message: I'm disappointed with the result but more disappointed with the performance. I thought we were absolutely shocking. There was no urgency, no life about us. They were hungrier than us and wanted it more than us. We never competed from start to finish and it's not good enough. The [transfer] window is open in January so I have to look seriously at what we can get in because that performance is not acceptable and it can't continue. from Ronnie McFall Glentoran manager

  4. Late goal 'a sickener' - McLaughlin

    Crusaders 3-2 Institute

    Quote Message: I thought we deserved at least a point. Our boys were superb throughout the game - we dominated possession and played some brilliant football. To be done by a last-minute penalty is a sickener but we'll take the positives from the game and move on. We're disappointed with the result but delighted with the performance and the work ethic. from Paddy McLaughlin Institute manager

  6. Lindsay delight at Swifts momentum

    Dungannon Swifts 1-0 Glentoran

    Quote Message: It was a pretty tight affair. We probably looked the more threatening going forward without testing Elliott [Morris] but we restricted Glentoran to set pieces and dealt with them well, and then managed to get one ourselves so delighted with the three points. Since I've come in the performances are getting better week in week out, and we're putting points on the board so we have to be pleased with the way things are progressing. from Kris Lindsay Dungannon Swifts manager

  8. Gray frustrated with 'reactive' Reds

    Linfield 4-2 Cliftonville

    Quote Message: It's been a tough week for us. Today, in patches we can take some positives but we're looking at conceding four goals. We're hugely disappointed. We were thinking there was something there for us but they scored the third and then the fourth. Our work mentality was off it and that seems to be a general theme at the moment. It doesn't seem to be working for us. We can talk about selections and tactics but it's about that basic 'do you want it or do you not want it?' We don't have it now. You can't expect to come to Windsor, concede four goals and come away with anything. We don't hold the ball long enough and don't pass it crisply enough. We're reactive as opposed to proactive and it's a challenge now. It's clear we need to add fresh blood in January but we need a spark of enthusiasm from the players right now. from Barry Gray Cliftonville manager

  11. 'Stute deserved a point' - Baxter

    Crusaders 3-2 Institute

    Quote Message: It was a thrilling game of football. When you score a goal five minutes from time you think you are home and dry but Institute played excellent football and passed the ball with pure quality. They played the best football I've seen from any team here in five years. They deserved something out of the game but Rory Patterson's first goal was real quality and his penalty with the last kick of the game was a pressure goal. from Stephen Baxter Crusaders manager

  13. Hamilton happy with Lurgan Blues display

    Glenavon 3-1 Ards

    Quote Message: I'm pleased with the performance, both individually and as a team. We controlled the ball, created chances and showed high energy levels. Only for their keeper we could have scored more. Sammy Clingan was superb - he adds experience and his goal was exceptional. from Gary Hamilton Glenavon manager

  14. 'Scoreline doesn't flatter us' - David Healy

    Linfield 4-2 Cliftonville

    Quote Message: Pleased with the performance, pleased with how we went about today. We worked hard during the week, focused on how we thought Cliftonville would set up. We got it right today and I think 4-2 doesn't flatter us considering the chances we had. Cliftonville have plenty of threat so I'm pleased we finished it off and we were deserved winners today. They kept coming back into it but we were very dominant in the first-half and scored four goals against a good side. Andy [Waterworth] has had to adjust because he's not as quick as he once was but he keeps getting in the right spots - I'm pleased that he managed to add another three to his tally. from David Healy Linfield manager

  17. Scoreline flattered Glenavon - Nixon

    Glenavon 3-1 Ards

    Quote Message: The scoreline flattered Glenavon but I'm saying the same thing every week. Luck is not with us at the the minute and missing chances is really frustrating. It's the story of our season and unless we change it quickly we'll stay where we are. from Colin Nixon Ards manager

    Crusaders 3-2 Institute

    Crusaders move to within six points of leaders Linfield thanks to their dramatic last-gasp win over Institute.

    The outcome is harsh on the visitors who played some good football and gave it everything but this is a big result for Stephen Baxter's side who make it four straight league wins.

    Institute, in contrast, have lost four on the spin.
