DAVID JEFFREY will be tearing his hair out after watching his team amazingly go down to ten men after Mark McAllister was sent off.
Portadown’s Chris Ramsey was sent off after a clash with McAllister who was left floored on the ground.
And when McAllister got to his feet he was bizarrely shown the red card, much to the annoyance of manager Jeffrey and the Linfield fans.
The teams went in at half time 0-0 and both managers will be looking to change things and grab the spoils.
Cliftonville are two nil ahead against Glenavon with a brace from Dolan.
Jordan Owens has kept Crusaders title chasing hopes alive with a goal before 20 mins against Coleraine.
But the shock of the day is that Donegal Celtic, who haven’t won a match all season and before today were rooted to the bottom on just four points, are amazingly leading Glentoran 2-0 nil.
