Ciaran Martyn levelled the scores in the second half but Cliftonville soon restored their advantage with strikes from Martin Murray and Ryan Catney.

A goal from Ciaran Doherty on 89 minutes made the final score 5-2 to the Reds who move back into second place in the Danske Bank Premiership, three points behind Linfield.

Redfs fans, just because you are on a bit of a run at present, dont assume the league is staying at Solitude. Remember, you have no experience at defending it. As has been stated before here, its hard to win the title, but its harder to defend it. Linfield have that in abundance, were used to it. Not saying we will win it, but do not think we will be too far away. I hope it goes to the wire though. Makes it exciting for everyone. Roll on Solitude next month.
