  1. Glens back on top

    East Belfast men take advantage of slips by rivals

    Another day, another change of leadership in the Irish Premiership.

    It's Glentoran back in top spot after they saw off Institute, while rivals Linfield and Cliftonville dropped unexpected points against Dungannon Swifts and Carrick Rangers respectively.

    Crusaders took advantage to jump into second place after a facile win over Larne, while Coleraine were handsome winners at Warrenpoint Town.

    Elsewhere, Glenavon put an unsettling week behind them by winning at Ballymena.

    We'll be back next Saturday with the latest installment in a fascinating Premiership title race.

    Before then, don't forget to join us on Tuesday night for our coverage of the County Antrim Shield final between Cliftonville and Ballymena United.

    Until then, bye for now.

  2. We were poor in the first half - Healy

    Linfield 0-0 Dungannon Swifts

    Quote Message: We were poor in the first half and got slightly better in the second half. We created decent chances but just couldn't break them down. We feel short of the standards we need but I thought we shaded the match and deserved to win. It's disappointing because it was an opportunity to back up the win over Cliftonville and we didn't do that. from David Healy Linfield manager

  3. Larne 'not at the races' - Lynch

    Crusaders 3-0 Larne

    Quote Message: We weren't good enough today - simple as. I'm not going to stand and make excuses about it - we got what we deserved. We weren't at the races and we made Crusaders' job too easy for them. The result was a true reflection of the game. All the things we're good at and that we work on every single day was missing today. We didn't carry out our game plan and we got punished for it but we have to take that on the chin. from Tiarnan Lynch Larne manager

  4. Gray 'massively disappointed'

    Warrenpoint Town 0-4 Coleraine

    Quote Message: That was a heavy defeat. We are massively disappointed with our second half performance - we were way off it. This is maybe a reality check and makes us realise the reinforcements we need to bring in. from Barry Gray Warrenpoint Town manager

  5. Fabulous finishes from Glackin

    Warrenpoint Town 0-4 Coleraine

    Quote Message: They were three great finishes from Jamie. We believe he has so much potential and it is just a matter of eking it out of him. I'm delighted for him as senior hat-tricks are hard to come by. It's a great moment for him. from Oran Kearney Coleraine manager

  6. Connor upbeat despite defeat

    Institute 0-2 Glentoran

    Quote Message: I'm disappointed to lose the game but I'm a bit buoyed by the performance. I thought their first goal had a bit of fortune, I was more disappointed about the second goal because it was a cheap free-kick to give away and we didn't react to the second ball. They managed the game well but I don't think it ever really opened up. When you're down near the bottom you can cave in but we didn't do that - we kept fighting to the very end. from Sean Connor Institute manager

  7. 'We were well below par' - Donaghey

    Carrick Rangers 1-0 Cliftonville

    Quote Message: We were expecting a bit of a bounce after Monday night. This is a difficult place to come and full credit to Carrick - we thought one goal was going to win the game. They got it and defended well so we were well below par today. They soaked up pressure and hit us on the break so they just looked hungrier, which is poor from us. We need to get back to where we were three or four weeks ago. from Brian Donaghey Cliftonville assistant coach

  8. 'We got every drop out of the players' - Currie

    Carrick Rangers 1-0 Cliftonville

    Quote Message: The boys were magnificent today. We're just trying to accumulate enough points so this was a massive plus today, I don't think anyone expected us to take three points. We fully deserved it though. We want to make sure we're clear of the dreaded drop zone but these players are a special bunch and we got every drop out of them again today. from Niall Currie Carrick Rangers boss

  9. Lindsay 'can't ask any more' of players

    Linfield 0-0 Dungannon Swifts

    Quote Message: We rode our luck at times but we'll take a point away to Linfield all day long. We're down to the bare bones in terms of injuries and suspensions, as well as a few loan players who couldn't play against the Blues, and I really couldn't have asked any more of my players. We worked so hard for that result and I'm extremely happy with the result. from Kris Lindsay Dungannon Swifts manager

  10. 'We have the belief' - McDermott

    Institute 0-2 Glentoran

    Quote Message: Delighted to leave with three points. Overall performance could probably have been better but still delighted. I think we're good enough to compete for the title - there are still five or six who can win it and we just want to be in the mix with the rest of them. We have the belief - those players in there believe they can accomplish something. That's all I ask of them every week. from Mick McDermott Glentoran manager

  11. First half show pleases Baxter

    Crusaders 3-0 Larne

    Quote Message: It was important today that we set ourselves a task to try to outplay them a little bit, to try and get in their faces and not let them settle on the ball. I thought our first half performance was really, really good. We got the ball into the box time upon number and that unsettled their back four. We created several chances and put three of them away so from that point of view, it was very good. Once we got in at half-time at 3-0 you have to make sure your shape is very solid and don't be letting silly goals in and we coped admirably. Overall, I think we got the whole thing right today. from Stephen Baxter Crusaders manager

  12. Hamilton happy

    Ballymena Utd 0-3 Glenavon

    Quote Message: It was a good all-round performance from my boys, everyone did their jobs and we showed desire. I thought we deserved to win. Our energy levels were high and our attacking play was good. Jonny Tuffey made some great saves too and we got a bit of the rub of the green. From now until the end of the season the players are playing to prove they want to be part of it next season. from Gary Hamilton Glenavon manager

  13. Greg's goal

    Ballymena Utd 0-3 Glenavon

    Greg Moorhouse's half-volley gives Glenavon a 3-0 win at the Showgrounds.

    Warrenpoint Town 0-4 Coleraine

    It was Nice 'n' Deasy in the end for Coleraine at Milltown as they blasted past Warrenpoint 4-0, Jamie Glackin starring with a hat-trick and Matthew Fitzpatrick scoring the other.

    Colm Deasy saw red for Warrenpoint.

    Coleraine move up to fourth, ahead of Cliftonville on goal difference.


    Ballymena Utd 0-3 Glenavon

    Seventh-placed Glenavon pull six points clear of Ballymena with this victory over the Sky Blues who will hope for better in Tuesday night's County Antrim Shield final.


    Institute 0-2 Glentoran

    They were only top of the table for 48 hours last week, but Glentoran are now outright leaders after seeing off the challenge of Institute at the Brandywell.

    The damage was done in the first half, with Navid Nasseri and Keith Cowan netting for the Glens in the first half.


    Linfield 0-0 Dungannon Swifts

    The home fans are not happy as Linfield are held to a scoreless draw at Windsor Park.

    The Blues were much better in the second half after a dreadful first-half performance, but were unable to find a goal.

    Sixteen-year-old keeper Conor Byrne produced a number of fine saves as a youthful Swifts side earned an away point.

  18. GOAL

    Ballymena Utd 0-3 Glenavon

    Glenavon score a third - a strike which sparks a mass exodus among the Ballymena supporters. Their side's defending has been abysmal this afternoon it has to be said.

    Greg Moorhouse is the man who scores his second of the match in added time with the help of an assist by Josh Daniels.


    Carrick Rangers 1-0 Cliftonville

    It's all over. Lloyd Anderson sinks Cliftonville as Carrick beat a top-five side for the first time this season!

    Another disappointing result for Paddy McLaughlin's side.
