Dungannon Swifts are through to the semi-finals of the Bet McLean League Cup following a dramatic penalty shoot-out victory at Cliftonville on Tuesday night.
The holders won it 3-2 on spot kicks after extra-time had ended one-each.
Dungannon will now face Portadown or Linfield in the semis next month.

The other Tuesday night match saw Ballymena beat Glentoran 2-1 in the Danske Bank Premiership.
It moves the Sky Blues into second place, just a point behind the leaders Linfield.
A win on Friday night away to Newry and they would go top, until Saturday at least when David Healy's men face Cliftonville at Windsor Park.
FT: @BallymenaUnited 2 @Glentoran 1 ... plenty of pressure for Glens in 2nd half but couldn’t make it count & late pen claim turned down. They’re in bottom half - Sky Blues go above @Glenavon_FC into 2nd place just a point behind leaders @OfficialBlues ...#DanskeBankPrem pic.twitter.com/PR5XoMBt1Q— Q Radio News (@qnewsdesk) November 20, 2018
