Cliftonville 0-2 Larne

Three days on from a 2-0 victory over Larne in the Clearer Water Irish Cup, Cliftonville fell to a mirror opposite defeat to the same opponents in this evening’s Sports Direct Premiership encounter at Solitude.

Behind when Andy Ryan nodded the visitors in front after just five minutes, the Reds came close to levelling through Ronan Hale early in the second-half before Ryan’s second of the night doubled the visitors’ advantage.

Goalkeeper Rohan Ferguson’s save from Ben Wilson denied Cliftonville from mounting a late rally as the Reds’ regular League programme ended in defeat.
