REDS WIN ON THE ROAD TO STAY TOP
Cliftonville remain top of the table following a 3-1 victory over Glenavon at Mourneview Park.
David Parkhouse opened the scoring for the Reds - his first goal for the club since his loan signing from Ballymena United - after 14 minutes with a close range finish after Luke Turner had headed Levi Ives' cross into his path.
Glenavon might have levelled before the break on a couple of occasions with Aaron Prendergast sending an effort just wide from a few yards out while Matthew Snoddy failed to turn home an Aaron Rogers cross.
Cliftonville were denied a second around the hour mark when Sean Moore's effort was cleared off the line by Danny Wallace before, not long after that, Ronan Hale rattled the crossbar from distance.
However, Cliftonville's second did arrive with a quarter-of-an-hour remaining courtesy of Colin Coates' close range finish from Ronan Doherty's delivery.
Rory Hale thought he had added a third for the visitors but his effort after rounding keeper Marc Matthews was ruled out by the officials - while Turner also had a 'goal' disallowed following a foul on the keeper.
Glenavon pulled one back with a minute of normal time remaining with a header from Peter Campbell's free-kick but Ronan Hale made sure of the points for the Reds in the closing moments after slotting into an open goal after being teed up by Joe Gormley.
