53: Daniels shoots straight at Carroll from the edge of the box.

60: Fabulous 30 yard strike by Sammy Clingan and an equally fabulous tip over by his former NI teammate Carroll.

79: Andy Doyle heads over from a Burns corner.

80: Linfield sub Kirk Millar drives a low shot through a crowded box and Tuffey reacts smartly to make a super save with his boot. Fellow sub Aaron Burns then seems to twist a knee as he tries to get to the loose ball and is forced to be subbed himself.
