PLUM ON TARGET FOR THE GLENS

Hrvoje Plum grabbed the winner as Glentoran defeated Crusaders at Seaview to stretch their unbeaten Danske Bank Premiership run to eight games.

Bagging his first goal of the season, the Croatian struck on 78 minutes with a trademark free-kick from just outside the area which lew past Jonny Tuffey into the corner of the net.

The Crues created the first effort of note inside the opening ten minutes when Paul Heatley fired over after being put through by Johnny McMurray, with another chance following soon after only for Aaron McCarey to get the better of him one-on-one.

For the Glens Conor McMenamin came closest with an effort across goal which Tuffey did well to stop.

After the break Ben Kennedy cut inside to test McCarey while Tuffey was again called into action to deal with a McMenamin effort.

Glentoran came within a whisker of breaking the deadlock on 71 minutes when McMenamin cut the ball back for Robbie McDaid to drive an effort against the crossbar.

At the other end Adam Lecky came close to finding a way through with a header just past an upright from a Billy Joe Burns delivery but minutes later Plum struck for the Glens for what proved to be the winner.
