Glentoran, leaders of the Danske Bank Premiership after 5 games, face Crusaders at the Oval on matchday 6 of the 2013-14 season. Last season the Glens took just one point from four games against the north Belfast side and will obviously be looking to improve on that record this time around.
Another jam-packed Glentoran Gazette hits the forecourt tomorrow for our Danske Bank Premiership game against Crusaders.
In this latest edition:
* Eddie Patterson gives a very frank explanation into the change in formation for the midweek win over Ards in his manager's notes
* Elliott Morris also gives his opinion on the events of the past week or so
* Cover star Mark Miskimmin on how he's settling in at the Oval
* Rainer Bonhof is the latest subject of our World Class feature
Crusaders make the short trip across Belfast on Saturday for what promises to be a battle. Hopefully we can continue our good form and take the 3 points against the Hatchmen from North Belfast.
The Premier Lounge will open as always at 1230 and will have live coverage from one of the televised games on show. The Glens v Crues game will also be live and exclusively shown on all screens in the bar at 3pm.
We will have a Happy Hour for our Members from 1230-130pm with all normal offers available.
Hope to see you all there.

Glentoran have gone top of the Danske Bank Premiership following a 5-nil victory over Ards at the Oval this evening. Manager, Eddie Patterson, started the game with a different formation, opting to go with a 3-5-2 set up and the Glens went in front with just 4 minutes played. A goal kick from Ards Keeper, McKibben was met by Jimmy Callacher. David Scullion raced on to Callacher's forward header and fired home from the edge of the area. Both sides struggled for periods in the first half although it was Glentoran who tended to look the more likely to score again.
It's been 7 long years since Ards last competed at the top level of Irish League football and on Tuesday night they face Glentoran at the Oval following their first victory in the Danske Bank Premiership; a 2-0 win over Ballymena United last Friday night. That victory lifted Ards off the foot of the table where they were surprisingly replaced by Linfield. Glentoran's draw at Windsor Park on Saturday ensured that the 'Blues' occupied the bottom spot over the weekend although they will be favourites to beat the side just above them, Warrenpoint Town tomorrow night.
