Sat, 07/03/2020 - 22:11

Glentoran suffered a disappointing 2-nil home defeat to Cliftonville in today's Danske Bank Premiership game. Playing into the strong wind the Glens were on the front foot early on with Ruaidhri Donnelly in particular looking dangerous against his former club.

Donnelly was the instigator and his cross from the left picked out Elvio Van Overbeek.  Van Overbeek beat the first defender but then saw his attempt cleared for a corner.
