Setanta Cup, first round, second leg
Glentoran 0 Shamrock Rovers 0
Glentoran goalkeeper Elliott Morris emerged the hero in this Setanta cup quarter final, second leg game at the Oval.
Eddie Patterson’s team trailed 5-1 form the first leg in Dublin a fortnight ago, which meant the game was a purely a damage limitation exercise.
But Morris prevented further embarrassment with a string of breath taking saves to deny hungry Rovers striker Eamon Sayed on a number of occasions.
Rovers will now meet Dundalk in the semi final next Monday night.
