Institute 1-0 Coleraine

Goals – Jarvis (’89 mins)


AARON Jarvis grabbed a late winner for Institute as the Bannsiders left the Brandywell empty handed.

‘Stute started the fixture on the front foot and threatened on nine minutes as a clever ball found the run of Paul Smith. After the striker beat the offside trap his effort was saved by Johns, with the stopper also called into action to deny Ronan Wilson’s follow-up.

On 25 minutes, the home side carved out another opportunity as Stephen Curry’s long range strike was easily gathered by Johns. At the other end, a fantastic delivery by Josh Carson was headed wide by Eoin Bradley.

Institute would end the half by creating two more chances as Smith was once again thwarted by Johns, before Ryan Morrow’s goal bound effort was blocked by the Coleraine defence.

The second-half was a more tight affair and it took until the 57th minute for the next chance to arrive as a fantastic through ball by Wilson found Smith, but the ex-Dergview man failed to find the back of the net.

Rodney McAree decided to bring on Cormac Burke and James McLaughlin in the hope of finding the breakthrough, and the Stripes had their first effort on target after 66 minutes as McLaughlin and Jamie Glackin combined to find Carson but his strike failed to trouble Martin Gallagher.

Johns was proving to be the difference at the Brandywell as the former Southampton trainee was alert to deny Smith’s well hit free-kick. On 87 minutes, Coleraine nearly grabbed the lead as Carson’s ball into the box found McLaughlin but he steered over.

Institute knew that a win would retain their Premiership status and they found it on 89 minutes as Wilson’s powerful run and cross found Jarvis who couldn’t miss from close range.

A blow for the Bannsiders who were largely second best throughout.
