Danske Bank Premiership

Prior to Boxing Day, we were talking about a four-horse race in the title race but after their 3-0 win over Linfield on Thursday, Glentoran surely have to be acknowledged as being very much a part of the race to lift the Gibson Cup in May.

In the Boxing Day reshuffle, Cliftonville have now moved into 1st place in the league with the Blues dropping to 2nd and a mere four points separate 5th placed Crusaders from the top spot. You can read Darren’s full review on the festive fixtures elsewhere on overtheturnstile.uk today but here is the full league table:-

It was a low scoring day in our Writer’s Prediction League but after predicting the correct result in Coleraine v Ballymena and the correct outcome in Glenavon v Dungannon, Rodney has moved into 1st place in the leaderboard, which now reads like this:-

1: Rodney 78
2: Cameron 77
3: Bryan/Adrian 72
5: Darren 69
6: Keith 62

 

As always our team will get three points for a correct result and a point for the correct outcome. Sligo Rovers fan Keith kicks us off this week.
