Insult to injury-time
Cliftonville were sunk by a last-minute goal in this afternoon's friendly encounter at Tallaght Stadium.
At the end of a worthwhile exercise between the Clubs - arranged in the main as part of Rovers' preparations for the
new League of Ireland season, which commences next weekend - it was Simon Madden's injury-time strike that
settled the tie.
Less than 48 hours on from the Reds' 1-1 draw with Glentoran in the Danske Bank Premiership, boss Gerard Lyttle
made 10 changes to the line-up, with Paul Finnegan the only surviving starter in an XI that saw fellow defenders
Jaimie McGovern, Chris Ramsey and former Tallaght Stadium favourite Jason McGuinness return to action alongside
a welcome comeback for Eamonn Seydak.
Joe Gormley went closest to registering for Cliftonville but, at the end of a contest that saw both Jason Mooney and
Peter Burke impress, Madden's intervention ensured Rovers would conclude their pre-season schedule with a
last-gasp victory.

CLIFTONVILLE: J Mooney, McGovern, Ramsey, McGuinness, Seydak, Gormley, Lavery, McNicholl, Finnegan, Nelson,
Subs: Burke, Bonner, Gilmore, Cosgrove, A Donnelly, G Donnelly, Waters, Reynolds, Lawlor.
