A strong first-half display earned Cliftonville full points from this evening’s Danske Bank Premiership encounter with Warrenpoint Town.
Ahead when Jay Donnelly found the bottom corner on nine minutes at The Q Radio Arena, barely 60 further seconds had elapsed before Conor McDonald’s cool finish made it 2-0.
Martin Murray pulled one back for the hosts on 20 minutes, but the Reds restored their two-goal advantage through Joe Gormley just before the interval.
Although Cliftonville carved out all the real openings in the second period, there would be no further amendment to the scoresheet as the visitors emerged with a deserved success.
Cliftonville: Neeson, Breen, Curran, Harkin, Bagnall, Gormley, J Donnelly, Cosgrove, A Donnelly, Grimes, McDonald. Subs: Dunne, McGovern, Ives, Winchester (Harkin, 61 mins), Lavery (Curran, 64 mins)
