Linfield stay three points clear at the top of the Danske Bank Premiership after beating Portadown 3-0 on Tuesday night.

Shayne Lavery was the star of the show at Windsor Park, hitting a hat-trick. 

Second-placed Larne were 4-1 winners away to Glenavon.

Crusaders beat Glentoran 1-0, and Dungannon won by the same score at Ballymena with ex-Northern Ireland goalkeeper Roy Carroll impressing on his debut for the Swifts.

It finished 2-2 between Coleraine and Cliftonville, with new Reds signing Paul O'Neill grabbing a late equaliser.

Wednesday's re-arranged match between Warrenpoint and Carrick has been called off - for the second day in a row.

It was postponed after a 3pm pitch inspection.

The same happened at Milltown on Tuesday night when the waterlogged ground was deemed unplayable less than an hour before kick-off.
