  6. GOAL

    Glentoran 0-1 Ballymena

    CONTROVERSY!

    Cathair Friel opens the scoring for Ballymena United from the penalty spot, but it's a hugely contentious goal.

    Jude Winchester wins the penalty after being fouled by Conor Pepper.

    Friel steps up, but it's a weak penalty which is easily saved by Antolovic. The rebound comes back to the Sky Blues striker, who makes a hash of his rebound as the Glens 'keeper gets across to palm the ball away.

    However, referee Tim Marshall awards a goal having adjudged that the ball crossed the line before Antolovic made the save.

    A hugely dramatic end to what's been a dull first half.
