DONNELLY AT THE DOUBLE FOR GLENS

Two Rory Donnelly goals helped Glentoran to victory over bottom of the table Dungannon Swifts at The Oval.
 
He opened the scoring as early as the fourth minute after controlling a ball forward and firing low beyond Roy Carroll in the Dungannon goal.
 
Hrvoje Plum might have added a second a few minutes after that via a deflected free-kick but Carroll did well to make a low save to his left.
 
Further chances followed before, just before the half-hour mark, Donnelly doubled his tally with a looping header from around 40 yards after Carroll had initially made the clearance from a counter attack.
 
Chances were sparingly created after the break with the Swifts possibly coming closest on the hour when Rhys Campbell controlled a Caolin Coyle ball forward but found Rory Brown equal to the challenge.
 
Indeed, it was a much better performance from the Swifts following some recent poor results.
