All times stated are UK

  1. GOAL

    Ballymena Utd 1-3 Linfield

    Jimmy Callacher stabs in at the back-post to extend Linfield's advantage on 71 minutes.

    Mark Haughey flicks on from Niall Quinn's inswinging corner and Callacher is perfectly placed to finish inches from the line.

    A big goal in a tight second half and one that will severely hit United's hopes of a comeback.


    Warrenpoint 1-1 Institute

    Wallace thinks he has re-established Warrenpoint's lead but he had just strayed offside before the ball came to him.

  3. CLOSE!

    Ballymena Utd 1-2 Linfield

    Steven McCullough fires his 25-yard free-kick inches wide of the the Linfield goal as Ballymena continue their quest for a leveller.

    With the Glens drawing with Carrick a win here for the champions would move them six points clear at the top.

  4. GOAL

    Dungannon Swifts 0-2 Larne

    Oh dear. Byrne allows Fuad Sule's effort wriggle underneath him. Larne double their lead.

    It's been a tough night for Dungannon's teenage goalkeeper.

  5. CLOSE!

    Warrenpoint 1-1 Institute

    Somehow the ball stays out! Daniel Wallace's header is cleared off the line. It comes back out to McVeigh, whose own headed effort brushes past the wrong side of the post.

    So close for the home side.

  6. What a save!

    Glentoran 0-0 Carrick Rangers

    Harry Doherty, take a bow!

    Ruaidhri Donnally's header from Navid Nasseri's corner looks like it is heading into the top corner, but the Carrick stopper leaps across to his left and claws the ball out of the air as it looked like he was beaten.

    Outstanding save!

  7. SAVE!

    Warrenpoint 1-1 Institute

    A brilliant save - and not for the first time tonight - from Buchanan after Tweed's impressive burst through the Warrenpoint midfield.

    Institute are looking by far the more threatening side at the moment.

  8. Scrappy at the Showgrounds

    Ballymena Utd 1-2 Linfield

    Sky Blues substitute Steven McCullough sees his header loop over but neither keeper has been troubled in a disjointed and stop-start start to the second half.

  9. SAVE!

    Warrenpoint 1-1 Institute

    Institute are dominating possession and they nearly had a second goal to show for their efforts, but Buchanan was alert to palm away Evan Tweed's header from point-blank range after McLaughlin's pinpoint cross from the left.

    What a chance for the visitors!

  10. CLOSE!

    Glentoran 0-0 Carrick Rangers

    Reece Neale lets fly from the edge of the area with a superb half-volley, which is met by an acrobatic save by Elliott Morris.

    Morris has been on the bench for the majority of the season and a spectator for much of tonight's proceedings, so that one will certainly get him moving now and he'll be thankful for some action.


    Ballymena Utd 1-2 Linfield

    Sky Blues boss David Jeffrey makes a change with Steven McCullough starting the second half in place of Leroy Millar.

  12. Right place at the right time...Stewart puts Linfield ahead

    Ballymena Utd 1-2 Linfield

    The Premiership pacesetters come from behind to lead at the break thanks to goals from Mark Haughey and Jordan Stewart.

    Joe McCready opened the scoring for the hosts with a wonderful curler but United are on course for a seventh straight league defeat.


    Dungannon Swifts 0-1 Larne

    Martin Donnelly's ninth league goal of the season puts Larne in the driving seat at Stangmore Park.


    Warrenpoint 1-1 Institute

    All square at the break. Alan O'Sullivan opened the scoring for Point after 19 minutes but Stute battled back with Obhakhan netting the equaliser on 43.

    An intriguing second half awaits.

  18. GOAL

    Ballymena Utd 1-2 Linfield

    Jordan Stewart sweeps home to give Linfield the lead on the stroke of half-time.

    Joel Cooper goes on a mazy run in the box and his shot is parried by Ross Glendinning with the ball falling to a grateful Stewart, who supplies a calm finish.


    Glentoran 0-0 Carrick Rangers

    Robbie McDaid skips away from Danny Magill in the area, and just as he is about to pull the trigger, Carrick skipper Mark Surgenor dives across and puts in a brilliant tackle to divert the striker's effort onto the roof of the net.

    Great defending but will the Glens be punished for missing all these chances?

  20. CLOSE!

    Ballymena Utd 1-1 Linfield

    That's better from Ballymena and it's that man Joe McCready again as the striker sees his low 20-yard effort pushed wide by Rohan Ferguson.
