Cliftonville and Crusaders both moved to within seven points of Danske Bank Premiership leaders Ballymena with wins in the only games to survive the storm on Saturday. 

The Reds stay fourth in the table, ahead of their north Belfast rivals on goal difference. They're four points behind third-placed Glenavon. 

Barry Gray's men beat basement club Ards 3-1 in Bangor with goals from Joe Gormley and Levi Ives.

Rory Donnelly also claimed one but replays showed it was deflected in by defender David Elebert.

However, Donnelly did get a bizarre headed own goal of his own!



A Jordan Forsythe header in the ninth minute was enough to give the Crues a 1-0 home win over Dungannon.


The Swifts remain just one point above the relegation play-off place, but boss Kris Lindsay had no complaints about the result at Seaview...

Meanwhile, Larne lost for the first time this season in the Championship.

The league leaders by 17 points went down 2-0 at Ballinamallard.
