GLENTORAN 0 PORTADOWN 1
Portadown striker Darren Murray grabbed the winner six minutes from the end of this lifeless Premier League clash at the Oval.
The former Donegal Celtic man held his nerve to blast home a spot kick past substitute goalkeeper Jamie Callacher.
Glentoran shot stopper Elliott Morris was red carded in the incident that led to the penalty, sending Kevin Braniff crashing inside the box following a reckless challenge.
