Ballymena boosted their hopes of finishing in the Danske Bank Premiership's top six with a 2-1 victory at Cliftonville last night.

Former Reds players Johnny McMurray and Johnny Flynn scored for the Sky Blues with Jamie Harney replying.

Flynn then faced going home to his young son to tell him his favourite team had been beaten - by a goal from his father!

Cliftonville defender Garry Breen was stretchered off to be taken to hospital with an ankle injury.
