Meanwhile Championship side Warrenpoint Town knocked out Ballinamallard

Linfield will travel to Institute in the sixth round of the Tennent's Irish Cup after beating Glentoran 2-1 in the Big Two clash on Saturday.

The tie in the north west is on February 4.

Championship side 'Stute had a 4-2 victory in their fifth round match away to Ballyclare Comrades.  

The Drumahoe side are well-known to Linfield midfielder, Limavady man Stephen Lowry.

Lowry scored the first goal for the Blues on Saturday and was named man of the match.

Ex-Glens player Andy Waterworth got the extra-time winner at the Oval.

Manager David Healy's revealed he gambled by asking his top striker to play on with an injury - and it paid off...

Curtis Allen hit the goal of the game to put the Glens in front, curling a spectacular shot from 25 yards past former Northern Ireland keeper Roy Carroll...

Allen says the Glens still have plenty to play for this season - with a place in Europe at stake.

Also in the next round of the cup...

Crusaders will play the PSNI at Seaview following a 2-0 win there on Saturday against Ards.


Cliftonville lost on penalties at Ballymena, who now face a trip to Harland and Wolff Welders.
