Title hopefuls Glentoran and Sion Swifts both took advantage of Linfield sitting out this round of action to leapfrog them at the top of the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership.

The Blues (who have played 12 league games) now sit a point behind the Glens (played 14) and Sion (13) in the race for this season’s title.

Striker Rachel Rogan netted twice for Glentoran in their 4-0 home victory over Derry City, with Joely Andrews and Kerry Beattie also on target for the East Belfast side.

Sion Swifts - who defeated the Glens 3-2 in a rearranged league fixture on Monday night - triumphed 3-1 at home to Crusaders.

Kelly Crompton, Donna Kay Henry (penalty) and Michelle McDaid were all on target for the in-form Sion, who are unbeaten since the opening day defeat at Linfield.

A hat-trick from Marissa Callaghan helped fire Cliftonville to a 5-0 win over basement side Comber Rec, with Chloe Orr and Shona Davis also finding the net for the Reds.

Linfield participated in the Champions League group stages this week - recording a memorable 3-2 victory over Greek champions PAOK but falling to defeats against Lillestrom and Anderlecht.
