Irish Premiership: Curtis Allen double secures Glens win over Ports

Two Curtis Allen goals helps Glentoran fight back to beat Portadown 2-1 after Marcio Soares puts the visitors ahead.

The victory secured Glentoran's top-six finish as they are nine points ahead of seventh-placed Dungannon Swifts with only two sets of fixtures remaining before the split.

Soares put Portadown ahead in the first minute before Allen levelled a minute from half-time after a neat build-up.

Portadown's Sean Mackle was sent off after a hand ball led to his second yellow card in the 84th minute and Allen curled in the resultant free-kick.
