LINFIELD strode four points clear at the top of the table thanks to hard-earned 2-1 win at Warrenpoint Town yesterday.

Blues striker Andrew Waterworth took advantage of poor defending by Colm Deasy to lob the ball into the net the 23rd minute but Ryan Swan's curled left-foot shot just after the break levelled the scores.

Waterworth (top) then had the confidence to dink home a 58th minute penalty after he had been fouled by Anton Reilly.

Glenavon halted Crusaders' fine run of form as they also won 2-1 at Mourneview Park. Paul Heatley had put the visitors ahead just before the break but second half goals from Josh Daniels and Conor McCloskey turned it around.

Cliftonville were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Dungannon Swifts. The visitors took a surprise lead through Douglas Wilson's glancing header in the 20th minute but Reds talisman Joe Gormley (inset) notched the equaliser eight minutes later. Larne romped to a 4-0 win at Institute, despite the game being goalless at half-time.

An own goal by Conor Tourish opened the floodgates, with Davy McDaid and a quickfire brace from Jeff Hughes - the second a penalty - piling on the pain.

Ballymena's struggles continued as they lost 2-0 at home to Carrick. Kyle Cherry and Gerard Kelly did the damage, consigning the Sky Blues to their sixth straight league defeat.
