Dungannon Swifts 1-3 Coleraine

Goals – Hazley (’19 mins); Tommons (’20 mins), Lowry (’37 mins), Allen (’53 mins)


Coleraine made sure of a top six finish in the Irish Premiership by winning away to Dungannon Swifts.

The Bannsiders had to battle from behind after Matt Hazley scored direct from a corner to give the Swifts the lead in the 19th minute.

Gareth Tommons quickly levelled with a far post header and Stephen Lowry fired into the roof of the net for 2-1.

Curtis Allen headed in from a Ryan McIlmoyle corner for the third while the Swifts’ Stefan Lavery hit the bar.

It means fifth-placed Coleraine cannot slip out of the top half before the late-season split which happens after next Saturday’s fixtures.

Dungannon, who have won just once in six league matches, stay in 10th place.
