Dungannon Swifts fall to a 2-1 defeat at home to ten man Glentoran

Ten-man Glentoran moved up to third in the Premiership with this victory.

Marcus Kane nipped in to score from close range after Niall Morgan had failed to hold a Stephen McAlorum free-kick after 29 minutes.

The Swifts restored parity through a Darren Boyce penalty a minute later after Richard Clarke fouled Jamie Douglas inside the area.

Jimmy Callacher was sent-off for a second bookable offence on 52 but Jason Hill volleyed into the net after 82.

Hill fired in first-time after meeting a cross from the left.

Dungannon began the game brightly and Elliott Morris was forced into a fine save from Ryan Harpur, while James Costello just failed to connect with a Boyce delivery.

Callacher's dismissal, the Glens' fifth red card of the season, came after a foul on Douglas.

With the score at 1-1, the hosts could have gone ahead when Dermot McCaffrey's well-struck shot came off the bar, but soon after Hill clinched the three points for the visitors.
