Glentoran will face Ballymena United in the Sadler's Peaky Blinder Irish Cup final on Friday night. 

They won their semi-finals on Monday evening after dramatic penalty shoot-outs at Windsor Park.

Both teams came from behind in normal time to level it at 1-1, then force extra-time and ultimately spot kicks. 

Ballymena beat Coleraine while the Glens knocked out Cliftonville.

 

 

 

Eoin Bradley had put the Bannsiders in front in the first semi, but sub. Kenny Kane grabbed a last-gasp equaliser for the Sky Blues.

Boss David Jeffrey praised his team's resilience saying they kept fighting even when all seemed lost. 

39-year-old keeper Elliott Morris was the Glentoran hero saving the final penalty and earning plaudits from his manager Mick McDermott....



The games were played behind closed doors, but a limited number of 500 fans will be able to watch the decider at Windsor.

Officials say it will be the first top level football match played in front of spectators in the UK since March.
 
McDermott is calling for Stormont to give the green light for more supporters to attend...
