    Thanks for joining us

    That's your lot for tonight.

    Coleraine move to within four points of leaders Linfield with a 2-1 win over Glenavon, while Crusaders and Cliftonville miss the chance to close the gap on third-placed Glentoran after a disappointing 0-0 draw at Seaview.

    Dungannon Swifts leapfrog Ballymena United into ninth place after Dougie Wilson's first-half header gave Kris Lindsay's men all three points against the Sky Blues at Stangmore Park.

    We'll be back on Saturday with a full six-match programme from the Irish Premiership.

    Hopefully you'll join us!


    Dungannon Swifts 1-0 Ballymena United

    Dungannon Swifts move above Ballymena United into ninth spot in the table as Douglas Wilson's first-half goal is enough to earn the home side victory at Stangmore Park.

    Ballymena produced some second-half pressure but the Swifts probably just about deserved their victory.


    Coleraine 2-1 Glenavon

    Coleraine move four points behind leaders Linfield as they hold on to beat the Lurgan Blues.


    Crusaders 0-0 Cliftonville

    A forgettable match ends with a stalemate at Seaview.

    Crusaders remain ahead of Cliftonville on goal difference.

  5. WIDE!

    Crusaders 0-0 Cliftonville

    Huge chance for Crusaders to find a late winner as Hegarty heads wide from Heatley's free-kick.

  6. CLOSE!

    Dungannon Swifts 1-0 Ballymena United

    James Knowles sends in a dangerous inswinging corner but Dylan King soars to produce a brilliant clearing header off the line.

  7. Post update

    Crusaders 0-0 Cliftonville

    Not much goalmouth action to speak of. Crusaders enjoyed a decent spell before a Cliftonville counter-attack ended with the Crues defence cutting out Ronan Doherty's cross.

  8. GOAL

    Coleraine 2-1 Glenavon

    Glenavon are back in it with Conor McCloskey firing his 20-yard free-kick past keeper Chris Johns.

    The visitors have improved since the break and we now have the prospect of a tense finale at the Showgrounds.


    Dungannon Swifts 1-0 Ballymena United

    Ross Glendinning makes his second great save in as many minutes as he grasps a Ryan Waide header after a deep cross by Shane McGinty. Dungannon have reasserted themselves after Ballymena dominated the initial action after the resumption.

  10. Patton almost doubles Dungannon lead

    Dungannon Swifts 1-0 Ballymena United

    After soaking up the Ballymena pressure, Dungannon go close to doubling their lead as Ross Glendinning makes a great full-length save to push a Mark Patton shot away for a corner.

  11. WIDE!

    Crusaders 0-0 Cliftonville

    Joe Gormley spurns a golden chance to put the visitors ahead. The striker gets on the end of a stunning long-ranged pass from Jamie Harney, takes a touch but slices his left-footed effort wide of Sean O'Neill's right-hand post.

    The Reds' leading scorer shakes his head - he knows he should have buried that one.


    Dungannon Swifts 1-0 Ballymena United

    Ballymena are certainly raising a gallop in the second half as they attempt to get on terms. Dungannon keeper Sam Johnston makes a great save to deny Kenneth Kane - although the Ballymena man should have buried the chance. From the resultant corner, Scot Whiteside heads inches wide.

  13. Wasteful hosts

    Coleraine 2-0 Glenavon

    A big let-off for Glenavon - Araron Jarvis heads into the path of Stewart Nixon from two yards out he somehow fails to get enough on the ball to find the net.


    Crusaders 0-0 Cliftonville

    Owens hits the outside of Brush's left-hand post with a powerful header after Michael Ruddy's excellent cross.

  15. Coates goes close

    Coleraine 2-0 Glenavon

    Glenavon make a good start to the second half with former Crusaders captain Colin Coates fizzing just wide at the backpost,


    Dungannon Swifts 1-0 Ballymena United

    Douglas Wilson's 23rd-minute goal is still separating the sides at Stangmore Park. Dungannon are good value for their lead.

  17. McLaughlin makes it two!

    Coleraine 2-0 Glenavon

    Video caption: Mclaughlin doubles Bannsiders' lead

    Crusaders 0-0 Cliftonville

    No goals yet, with Crues defender Chris Hegarty seeing his volley saved by Richard Brush in the game's best chance.

    Joe Gormley also had a goal chalked off for offside.


    Coleraine 2-0 Glenavon

    Goals from Stewart Nixon and James McLaughlin give the Bannsiders a deserved lead at the break.

    Glenavon have been poor defensively with their high line breached time and time again.

  20. SAVE!

    Crusaders 0-0 Cliftonville

    Having been found by Hale, Paul McElroy shows some excellent footwork to dance around Chris Curran before producing a fine save from Brush.
