/, Premiership/Result: Glenavon 3-0 Ballymena Utd.

Gary Hamilton makes a total of eight changes to the line-up that started last week’s Irish Cup semifinal, only Johnny Tuffey, Rhys Marshall and James Singleton retain their places.

Jordan Jenkins has certainly staked a claim for a regular starting place with some excellent front play. After going close with a first time shot in the 7th minute, he capitalised on a poor punch by Tim Allen from a high ball into the box by Chris Turner to stab home from close range to send Glenavon in 1-0 up at the break.

Wow! Jordan Jenkins volleys in from 10 yards. What a stunning goal as the youngster blasts McGrory’s cross into the back of the net in the 52nd minute with Allen flat-footed. The keeper had no chance with that.

Five minutes before the Sky Blues keeper pulled off a great save to push a James Gray header over the bar from Chris Turner’s cross.

Greg Moorhouse loves playing against Ballymena – that’s his sixth goal against the Sky Blues this season! Only four minutes after coming off the bench he swivelled in the box and slotted a low right foot shot into the bottom corner. Rhys Marshall provided the assist as he played a one-two with Moorhouse then dribbled into the box before the ball broke off a Leroy Millar challenge and the Glenavon striker quickly latched onto it.
