Linfield all but clinched the Danske Bank Premiership title last night with a 1-0 win away to second-placed Ballymena.
Andy Waterworth scored the only goal at the start of the second half to send the Blues 12 points clear at the top.
It means David Healy's men only need a draw from their remaining four fixtures (starting with Crusaders at Windsor next week) to lift the Gibson Cup for the second time in three years...
The Northern Ireland goalscoring legend said after the match talks have been continuing with Waterworth about a new contract.
Healy also criticised an element of the Ballymena support for verbally abusing injured Blues keeper Roy Carroll.
Meanwhile, Newry City beat Ards 3-0 in the basement battle to move above their relegation rivals.
Stephen Hughes, Mark McCabe and Tiarnan Rushe scored for the home side.
Here's delighted manager Darren Mullen...
A win that has been a long time coming but certainly well deserved. Every single player super tonight with the fans playing their part as usual. Plenty of football still to be played but good start to what is a massive month for us #NCAFC 🔵⚪️— darren mullen (@ncr72) April 5, 2019
