Beware the eyes of March

David Jeffrey's roll of the eyes said it all as Linfield tried coming to terms with the fact that their lead at the top of the Carling Premiership is no more.

Once 13 points ahead of the chasing pack, the Blues are now level at the top with Crusaders following Coleraine's 1-0 victory at Windsor Park yesterday.

The Crues defeated Lisburn Distillery at New Grosvenor, while a late penalty helped Glentoran to a 4-3 win in a wonderful game at the Newry Showgrounds.

Fourth-placed Cliftonville slipped up 3-1 at home to Portadown and, for the second week running, Glenavon fell 3-2 behind in injury-time only to bag an instant leveller - this time at Donegal Celtic.
