Glentoran, majestic in the first half, conceded 4 second half goals in the second at the Ballymena Showgrounds this afternoon. It was, as the old football cliche goes, a game of two halves and Ballymena United ended up deserved winners; their first league victory over the Glens at the Showgrounds for almost a decade!

The full draw:
Ballymena Utd v Ards

Looking at results over the past 3 seasons in games between the teams in the Danske Bank Premiership, Glentoran have had the better of things with 6 wins, 2 draws and just 1 defeat in the 9 meetings.
The 2013-14 season sat the opening game at the Oval finish scoreless with Glentoran winning the other two; 4-3 at the Showgrounds in November 2013 and 3-0 at the Oval in March 2014.
Facing another knockout evening match against lower league opponents, it was a night when the travelling fans questioned if it could possibly go wrong again.
The teams were welcomed out to a dry pleasant evening by a smallish crowd. There were three changes in the Glentoran starting line up from Saturday, with Curtis Allen, Stevie Gordon and James Ferrin all getting the nod from the Gaffer.
