Glentoran strengthened their hopes of securing a place in the Europa League play-offs with this draw against Warrenpoint Town at The Oval.

'Point led at the break thanks to Simon Kelly's 32nd minute close range finish into the top corner after a Matthew Lynch ball was only partially cleared.

However, Mick McDermott's side got back on levels terms just four minutes into the second half through John Herron's low finish past Berraat Turker, albeit via a slight deflection.

But, three minutes after that, Warrenpoint were back on top when Philip Donnelly converted from the spot after Steven Moan had been upended by Marcus Kane.

Yet, ultimately, the spoils were shared when Darren Murray grabbed Glentoran's second equaliser six minutes from the end with a near post header from Robbie McDaid's corner.
