LATE SWIFTS DOUBLE STUNS REDS
Dungannon Swifts staged a late smash and grab to stun title hopefuls Cliftonville at Solitude and give their own hopes of survival a huge shot in the arm.
The Swifts got off to a promising start, threatening early on through a Jordan Jenkins run and shot before Marc Walsh saw an effort blocked and Mayowa Animasahun couldn't turn a James Knowles free-kick on target.
Cliftonville grew into the game as the first half progressed, and might have moved in front through Sean Moore at the back post but his shot came off Dean Curry before being gathered by keeper Declan Dunne.
Luke Turner then sent an effort over the top from close range before Ronan Hale came closest to breaking the deadlock with a curling ball from outside the area onto the top of the crossbar.
After the break Rory Hale twice came close before, on 59 minutes, brother Ronan finally found a way through for the Reds after getting his head to Ronan Doherty's inswinging cross to divert the ball beyond Dunne.
Ronan was denied doubling Cliftonville's lead with around a quarter-of-an-hour remaining when Dunne produced a strong stop to turn his effort behind for a corner.
However, with a minute of normal time remaining, the Swifts levelled through Padraig Lynch's close range header after Steven Scott worked his way into the area before crossing the ball.
Then, remarkably, five minutes into added time the visitors snatched the winner on the counter attack after substitute Joseph Moore found himself in space and unmarked to knock the ball past Nathan Gartside.
