Crues meanwhile stayed five points clear of Linfield at the top of the table

New Glentoran manager Gary Haveron says he's gutted about losing to Linfield on Saturday, but is taking away positives from his first game in charge.

The Oval showdown was heading for a draw, until former Glens defender Jimmy Callacher headed home three minutes from time to give the Blues a hard-earned 2-1 victory.

Haveron is praising his players and says he wants more of the same in the coming weeks.
