SECOND HALF GOALS ENOUGH FOR GLENS

Glentoran moved back to the top of the table following a three-goal victory over Newry City at the BetMcLean Oval.

Although scoreless at the break, the Glens did come closest to breaking the deadlock when Jay Donnelly had an effort cleared off the line while Shay McCartan sent a shot from distance just wide.

Newry might have taken the lead themselves around the hour mark when Glens keeper Aaron McCarey had to react quickly to turn the ball around an upright, followed by a Thomas Lockhart effort from range and then Philip Donnelly heading narrowly wide.

However, Glentoran finally seized the advantage on 68 minutes through substitute Bobby Burns from close range after Conor McMenamin and then McCartan had flicked the ball on.

And they doubled their lead just a couple of minutes after that with the follow up after Steven Maguire had kept out his initial effort.

Then, three minutes from time, Patrick McClean completed the scoring with a header in the far right corner.
