Glentoran’s seven game unbeaten run came to an end to day as two first half Sean Moore goals condemned us to our fifth consecutive defeat to the Reds, all by a single goal.

There were four changes from last week’s win at Ballymena, with Niall McGinn and Bobby urns returning for James Singleton and an injured Jay Donnelly. Last week’s two goal hero Rory Donnelly kept his place in the starting line-up in his old centre forward role in place of his brother.
