Glentoran are top of the Danske Bank Premiership after a 2-1 comeback victory against Warrenpoint Town at the Oval.

The Glens hit two late goals to win it and stretch their unbeaten run in the two main competitions to 15 games - 14 in the league and one in the Irish Cup, last week's dramatic victory against Portadown.

Alan O'Sullivan put Warrenpoint in front in the second half before keeper Mark Byrne was dismissed for a foul after 70 minutes.

Within five minutes, Robbie McDaid equalised for the home side and Hrvoje Plum hit another stunning free-kick winner. 

The last time Glentoran were top in January was 10 years ago. 

They are now just ahead of Cliftonville, on goals scored.

The Reds host Linfield on Monday night. 

On Sunday, Glens boss Mick McDermott was named manager of the month for December by the NI Football Writers. 

The east Belfast club are on 50 league points, already more than they had for the whole of last season. 









Also on Saturday, Glenavon fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with Institute at Mourneview Park.

Dungannon Swifts against Ballymena United was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at Stangmore Park.



In the Championship, Portadown have announced American goalkeeper Bobby Edwards is leaving the club.

He's returning to the United States after accepting an offer to play in the MLS.
