Ronnie McFall has enjoyed instant success in his first match back as Glentoran manager.

The Glens beat Cliftonville 1-0 at the Oval with Curtis Allen scoring in the second half, heading home after earlier having a penalty saved by visiting keeper Brian Neeson. 

Ronnie's told Q Radio Sport what he said before kick off to motivate his players...

McFall came out of retirement to take the Glens job for a second time after Gary Haveron was sacked mid-week.

But despite the successful start and moving five points ahead of Ballymena in sixth place, the ex-Portadown boss insists he'll be leaving in a couple of months ...

Meanwhile, Reds manager Barry Gray says the defeat has given him plenty to think about...

The Danske Bank Premiership leaders Crusaders beat Ballymena 3-1 at Seaview and stay two points clear of Coleraine who had a 1-0 home win over Warrenpoint - Josh Carson's corner kick going straight into the net for the only goal.

The officials at the Showgrounds were guests from Saudi Arabia with former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg - Head of Refereeing for the Saudi Arabian Football Federation - acting as the referee's assessor.

Glenavon had Joel Cooper sent off but still won 2-1 at Carrick, Linfield beat Ards 3-0 in Bangor and Dungannon Swifts were 2-0 winners against visiting Ballinamallard.

Meanwhile, Championship club Portadown say they have parted company with boss Niall Currie.
