Ballinamallard United 2-1 Glentoran

Sat, 17/12/2016 - 21:58

Steven Gordon's red card proved to be the turning point as Glentoran slipped to ninth place in the Danske Bank Premiership. The Glens had probably shaded the first half and certainly had the best of the chances but a moment of madness, as the players left the field at the interval, ultimately cost Glentoran the game.

Glentoran travel to Ferney Park to face Ballinamallard Utd in the Danske Bank Premiership.

The two sides drew 1-1 at the Oval earlier in the season to earn Gary Haveron his first point as Glentoran manager and Haveron will be looking to maintain his unbeaten away league record since taking over the Glens job.

Today he welcomes back Calum Birney after a one match suspension but left back, Ross Redman sits this game out having picked up sufficient yellow cards to warrant a one game ban.

Glentoran 2-3 Ballymena Utd

Sat, 10/12/2016 - 21:08

On what was an exceptionally mild December afternoon, and following last Saturday's entertaining game against Crusaders, the Oval seemed the obvious destination to avoid the pre-Christmas rush. 

Chris Lavery started the game, with James Ferrin moving into defence to replace the suspended Calum Birney.

Glentoran face Ballymena United at the Oval on Saturday looking to build on last weekend’s very encouraging performance against Danske Bank Premiership leaders, Crusaders. Over the past few seasons the teams have met 10 times with Glentoran’s record showing 6 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats. One of those defeats came earlier this season and ironically the team produced their best 45 minutes of football of the season.
