Glentoran 1-0 Ballymena United

Tue, 14/03/2023 - 23:06

Glentoran took maximum points from tonight's Danske Bank Premiership game at the Bet McLean Oval but it took until the 88th minute for the goal to arrive. Danny Purkis was the hero and it was fully deserved as he put in a great shift. Overall though it was a laboured performance with chances few and far between and had the normally prolific Davy McDaid been on form, the story might have had a different ending; the Ballymena United striker spurning 3 great opportunities over the 90 minutes.

Glentoran 0-2 Glenavon

Sat, 11/03/2023 - 18:14

Glentoran were lacking in passion, fight & desire and as a result, lost this game and with it, the chance to move up a couple of places in the Danske Bank Premiership table. The game, rescheduled from last night only went ahead due to the hard work of staff, volunteers and supporters. Unfortunately their efforts weren't rewarded. The home side were unchanged from Tuesday night's victory over Carrick Rangers with Niall McGinn making a return to the squad as one of the substitutes.
