8-man Glentoran eventually succumbed to an 86th minute goal in today's Danske Bank Premiership match a the Oval. Having taken the lead midway through the first half Glentoran remained in front at the break despite being reduced to 9 men with both John Herron and Calum Birney receiving straight red cards. Glentoran skipper Marcus Kane was suspended for this game, James McCarthy coming in, and Connor Pepper had to sit it out due to a groin injury.

On Saturday we play second placed Glenavon for the second time this season.
Glenavon are currently in a strong run of form and sit ten points ahead of us.

It is with sadness that we have to announce the passing of another of our stalwart supporters, Mr Noel Hall.
