LAST GASP PENALTY GIVES REDS THE POINTS

A stoppage time penalty ensured Cliftonville picked up all three points from this visit to face Dungannon Swifts at Stangmore Park.
 
Ryan Curran knocked home the winner from the spot to complete the comeback for Paddy McLaughlin's side after they had trailed at the break.
 
Dungannon moved in front just before the half-hour through Aaron Donnelly who unluckily turned the ball into his own net whilst attempting to clear Mark Patton's cross into the box which had flicked off the head of Michael Carvill.
 
It was unfortunate for Cliftonville who had created the best chances up to that point with debutant Rory Hale causing problems and looking dangerous throughout.
 
The visitors got back on level terms early in the second half, however, when Chris Curran smashed home the equaliser after Donnelly's corner from the right had been knocked on.
 
Cliftonville pushed hard to turn their numerous chances into goals, coming close before the hour when a combination of a superb Sam Johnston save from Ryan Curran and Shane McGinty's goalline clearance from Conor McMenamin's follow up kept the ball out.
 
Further opportunities followed, some squandered and some saved, before in the fourth minute of added time Ryan Curran fired home his spot-kick winner after referee Shane Andrews had ruled that a Chris Curran effort had been blocked by an arm on the line.
