Ronan Doherty scored the only goal of the game as Cliftonville beat Linfield to go top of the Irish League Premier Division.
The Carndonagh man gave the Reds the lead after 12 minutes in this Belfast Derby as he fired into the far corner after being played in by former Derry City player Ronan Hale.
It was a superb birthday present for the former Cockhill Celtic player, who turned 27 yesterday.
It’s a first goal of the season for the midfielder in 21 games, as he enjoys his third season at the men from North Belfast.
Cliftonville finished a point behind Linfield last season in the title race and will be hoping to go one better this year and win their first league title for nine seasons.
And the win last night moves them three points clear of Larne, who have a superior goal difference and a game in hand.
