Match Programme

The Opposition

The Glens are without a win in their last three Danske Bank Premiership. A win against the Invermen on Tuesday evening will ensure they secure an automatic European spot after Linfield won the Irish Cup last Friday.

The Inver Reds

The Invermen hope to continue their fine run of form in the Danske Bank Premiership and make it a fourth win out of four post-split games. A win on Tuesday will put the race for a European spot in our own hands with Coleraine still to come to Inver Park on Saturday. Conor Devlin will remain absent from the team sheet due to injury.

Last Time Out

Glentoran collected all three points the last time these two sides met back in April. Rhys Marshall put the Glens in front early in the first half before two quickfire goals from Mark Randall and Tomas Cosgrove turned the game on its head, as the teams went in at half time. The pressure mounted on the Reds in the second half and in the 71st minute, Jay Donnelly secured the equaliser for Glentoran before an unfortunate own goal from Fuad Sule handed the East Belfast side the points.
