Both Linfield and Sion Swifts remain confident of title glory after the two played out a 2-2 draw in Sunday’s title clash.

Sion remain one point clear of the Blues at the top of the standings having played one game more, with the South Belfast side having four games left.

"I said to the girls before the game that a draw would be a good result, but when you're in a position of being two goals ahead at that time of the game then it’s disappointing," Blues boss Phil Lewis said after the game.

"The title race still remains in our hands and we have four more games left and if we get the results we want in those matches then we retain the league title.

"To win four league titles in a row would be a special achievement."

Sion striker Donna Kay Henry, who netted the equalising goal at New Midgley Park on Sunday, added: "We did really well to keep believing in ourselves.

"I'm really proud of the girls for sticking in the match and not giving up, it showed a lot of character and that is what it takes at this level.

"We won the second half and battled back in tough conditions, and to get a draw from this match is a good result for us.

"It keeps us at the top of the table and now its us to up to get the required number of points from the rest of the games and we could lift the title."
