Glentoran’s 2-1 victory against Institute at the Oval saw them climb to 6th in the Danske Bank Premiership table. Jay Magee gave the Glens the lead in the first half before Steven Gordon, with his first goal for the club, made it 2-nil. Robbie Hume pulled a goal back for the visitors in the final minute.
Glentoran face Institute at the Oval on Saturday looking to build on the excellent performance against Linfield last Saturday. Manager, Eddie Patterson is still without long-term absentee David Howland whilst Jim O'Hanlon (thigh) and Willie Garrett (ankle) are still unavailable through injury. He will give late fitness checks to both Marcus Kane and Steven Gordon but everyone else is available for selection.
The two teams met earlier this season, playing out a 1-1 draw at Drumahoe on 20th September.
