BEATTIE PENALTY KEEPS TITLE IN THE BALANCE

The Sports Direct Women's Premiership title race continues as Glentoran and Cliftonville shared the points at Ashfield

Cliftonville opened the scoring on 17 minutes with an devastating counter attack, led by Kirsty McGuinness down the left - her cross to sister Caitlin only needed a deft touch by the striker to place the ball through the legs of goalkeeper Scott.

Glentoran were dealt a further blow when goalkeeper Ellie Scott was forced off with an injury, but the home side came back into the game and Nadene Caldwell came closest to the equaliser when she connected with Emily Wilson's cross but her curling effort flew wide of the post.

The Reds had the ball in the back of the net again on 38 minutes, after Toni-Leigh Finnegan's rasping 25-yard drive was parried by substitute 'keeper McKinnon but only into the path of Caitlin McGuinness, but was denied by the offside flag.

Glentoran had an effort cleared off the line as Emma McMaster was denied by the quick reactions of Abbie Magee, to keep her side in front going into the break.

The Glens eventually found their equaliser early in the second half from the penalty spot, after Nadene Caldwell was fouled - it was top scorer Kerry Beattie who cooly found the back of the net.

Cliftonville continued to press and Emma McMaster was called upon for another goal-line clearance with 15 minutes remaining.
