Milestone magic

Dungannon Swifts 1-3 Cliftonville

Joe Gormley marked his 350th Cliftonville appearance by scoring two goals in this afternoon’s comeback win over Dungannon Swifts at Stangmore Park.

After falling behind to Oisin Smyth’s penalty, the Reds levelled when Gormley capitalised on an error from home keeper Alex Moore to acrobatically flick the ball home from close range and then applied the finishing touch after namesakes Chris and Ryan Curran had combined to create an opening early in the second-half.

Both teams went close to adding to the score – none moreso than when Swifts defender Keith Cowan struck his own crossbar with a wayward backpass from 20 yards – before Cliftonville wrapped things up in injury-time when Paul O’Neill dispossessed Moore and teed up Ryan Curran, who stroked home first-time from the edge of the box.
