Glenavon v Cliftonville

Glenavon 3 - 1 Cliftonville
16 Sep 2017 - 15:00Mourneview Park, Lurgan

Cliftonville slumped to a lacklustre defeat as Glenavon comfortably pocketed all three points at a rain-lashed Mourneview Park this afternoon.

Trailing to Andrew Mitchell’s early opener, the Reds fell further behind when Andy Hall and Marc Griffin each pounced to extend the Lurgan Blues’ advantage before Joe Gormley registered a consolation.

What minimal hope the visitors had of staging an implausible late comeback was snuffed out when defender Garry Breen was dismissed for a second bookable offence in the closing stages.
