Glentoran drew 1-1 with Ballymena United in Monday night's televised Danske Bank Premiership match at the Oval.

Cathair Friel put the Sky Blues in front with a first-half penalty, but the Glens fought back after the break and equalised through James Knowles.

Home manager Gary Haveron says fit-again, half-time sub Dylan Davidson helped change the game with his display on the left flank.



Ballymena keeper Ross Glendinning feels the visitors should have taken all three points.

Glentoran remain in the top six, with David Jeffrey's team two places and seven points behind them. 


Ross says there were positives from the performance.

The Braidmen are in action again on Friday night, facing Glendinning's former team Linfield at the Showgrounds. 
Meanwhile, the Glens' home game against Glenavon, postponed this Saturday due to international call-ups, has been rearranged for next Tuesday. 

Boss Haveron says he welcomes the extra few days to prepare.
