Carrick Rangers’ league title tilt remains very much on track after Saturday’s 1-0 victory at Donegal Celtic.

Young defender Ryan Arthur scored the only goal of the game with a header after a goalmouth scramble on 54 minutes. It was the former Cliftonville Olympic captain’s third for the club since he signed for the Taylor’s Avenue outfit in January.

The Gers remain top of Championship 1 with two games left to play - the first of which is on Tuesday evening away to PSNI.

Carrick Rangers: Neeson, Smyth, Traynor, Donaghy, R. Arthur, Watson (Kane), Harmon, Cherry (Dick), Chines, Roy (McConnell), Kelly. Subs not used: Hamill, Taggart
