CONATY STUNS GLENS TO EARN LATE POINT

There was late drama at Shamrock Park as Portadown secured a vital point in the battle for Danske Bank Premiership survival against Glentoran.

It was the visitors that piled on the majority of the first half pressure at Shamrock Park but failed to find a breakthrough as McClean, Burns and McDaid all went close for Glentoran.

Glentoran’s good work was seemingly undone by a straight red card for defender Patrick McClean for a strong challenge on Portadown’s Greg Hall on 32 minutes.

The extra man gave Paul Doolin’s side a bit of impetuous towards the end of the first period, but neither side could find a breakthrough as they went into the break scoreless.

Most of the action was reserved to the final five minutes of the game as great work from substitute Shay McCartan down the right flank teed up Conor McMenamin to fire home from six yards past Barr for what looked like a vital winning goal.

However, with full time looming Portadown’s Oisin Conaty caught the visiting defence napping as he nipped at close range into score from Greg Hall’s cross and secure a vital point for Paul Doolin’s Ports.
