  12. O'Connor denied

    Linfield 0-0 Glenavon

    Linfield sub Michael O'Connor is played in well but his shot is saved by Tuffey.

    Kirk Millar is on his heels at the back post and James Singleton is able to clear.

  13. What could have been

    Coleraine 2-1 Dungannon Swifts

    Daniel Hughes may come to rue that miss! The Swifts striker, who pulled one back for his team, is picked out by a cross and is free in front of goal, but a poor first touch allows a defender to get back to clear.

    It came after the hosts managed to survive a goalmouth scramble. Dungannon are pushing for a leveller now.


    Ballymena Utd 2-0 Ards

    Jude Winchester sees his well struck penalty superbly saved low down to his left by Ards goalkeeper Sam Johnston.

    Knowles looked like he fancied the opportunity to redeem himself for his earlier spot-kick miss but in the end it was his midfield partner who stepped up to score.

  15. A tale of two penalties...

    Institute 6-4 Cliftonville

    A missed penalty for Cliftonville and within 60 seconds there's a penalty - and a red card - at the other end!

  16. Great block from Mulgrew

    Linfield 0-0 Glenavon

    Rhys Marshall strides out from the back superbly and pings an outstanding cross-field pass to Stephen Murray.

    He slips it inside to Andy Hall who pulls the trigger but Blues skipper Jamie Mulgrew makes a great sliding block.

  17. GOAL

    Institute 6-4 Cliftonville

    Yet another goal at the Brandywell as Rory Donnelly curls home a shot in the 77th minute.

    That's a hat-trick for Donnelly but more importantly, a lifeline for the Reds.

  18. Carroll saves from Murray

    Linfield 0-0 Glenavon

    Stephen Murray got in for a good chance for Glenavon, but his effort was well saved at the near post by Roy Carroll.

    The keeper looks like he injured his neck in the process.

  19. Are you sitting comfortably?

    Institute 6-3 Cliftonville

    Let's try to make some sense of a manic few minutes at the Brandywell.

    First Cliftonville missed the chance to complete a remarkable turnaround when Rory Donnelly's penalty was saved by the outstretched foot of Institute keeper Marty Gallagher after the same two players had collided.

    The ball was cleared upfield to the Cliftonville penalty area where referee Lee Tavinder adjugded that keeper Brian Neeson's robust challenge on Ronan Doherty merited a red card.

    With no keeper on the bench, defender Jamie Harney took over between the posts but could not keep out McCrudden's spot kick and since then, McCready and McCrudden (again) have added further goals.
