Coleraine beat Cliftonville 2-1 at Solitude on Saturday to remain unbeaten in their 11 Danske Bank Premiership matches and stay five points clear at the top. 

Joe McCready hit the winner just after half-time - earlier skipper David Ogilby put the Bannsiders in front from a free-kick.

He was then booked and substituted at the interval. 

His replacement, Steven Douglas - who's just turned 40 - was then outstanding in the heart of the Stripes defence.
A miserable afternoon for Cliftonville was completed with the dismissal of midfielder Liam Bagnall in injury time. 

The defeat ended the Reds' recent revival - here's their goalscorer, Rory Donnelly.



Ballinamallard had their first league win - 2-0 against Carrick Rangers at Ferney Park. 

In the late kick-off, Glentoran also had a 2-0 victory away to Dungannon Swifts.


It moves Gary Haveron's men up to fourth in the standings above Crusaders and Cliftonville, level on points with Linfield.
Swifts boss Rodney McAree wasn't so happy.

The last match of the Premiership's long weekend is on Monday night - third-placed Linfield against Crusaders, currently fifth. 

Last season's top two are also set to meet in the quarter-finals of the League Cup on Wednesday, November 15th with the Blues visiting Seaview.

Holders Ballymena have been drawn at home to Ards, Cliftonville go to Carrick and Dungannon welcome Ballyclare Comrades to Stangmore Park.
