REDS STRETCH LEAD TO FOUR POINTS

Cliftonville extended their lead at the top of the standings to four points with victory over bottom of the table Dungannon Swifts at Stangmore Park.

Despite how it ended the Reds had to chase the game for a spell after falling behind on 16 minutes when Swifts skipper Oisin Smyth converted from the spot after referee Ross Dunlop awarded the penalty following a foul on Caolan McAleer.

Cliftonville levelled midway through the first half. Jamie McDonagh had sent over a cross which Swifts keeper Alex Moore failed to deal with allowing Joe Gormley to turn the ball home from close range.

And Gormley edged the visitors in front early in the second half, this time after connecting with a Ryan Curran pass.

Curran himself had a chance after that but could only fire over from around eight yards while, at the other end, Rhyss Campbell came close to levelling with an effort off the post.

But the woodwork then saved the home side a little later when Keith Cowan's rogue backpass came off the bar before Moore cleared it to safety.

However, Cliftonville did get a third goal right at the end when Curran made the most of a defensive error to make the points safe.
