But Sligo hit back with Turner levelling 15 minutes later before the striker gave Paul Cook’s side the lead five minutes before the interval.

In an entertaining game, Cliftonville hit back to equalise on 67 minutes through Jason Bannon.

Sligo responded well and were rewarded with the winner six minutes later when Dean Marshall found the net.
