HIGHLIGHTS from last night’s victory against Linfield are now available to watch on the club’s official YouTube channel…
The Bannsiders would confirm their spot in the final of the BetMcLean League Cup in February after a 3-0 win in the capital.
In an under-par first-half, it would be Linfield who create the majority of the chances as Jamie Mulgrew, Matthew Clarke and Stephen Fallon all went close to breaking the deadlock. On 40 minutes, Coleraine had ‘keeper Chris Johns to thank as he made a one-on-one save to deny Shayne Lavery.
The Bannsiders made a bright start to the second-half and threatened on two occasions as Ben Doherty’s goal-bound effort was blocked by the legs of Jamie Glackin, before Aaron Jarvis’ header was straight down the throat of Rohan Ferguson.
However, Coleraine would turn the game on its head in a devastating 20-minute spell as Aaron Canning nodded home from close range, before Ben Doherty’s cross went over the head of Ferguson to double the lead, with Jarvis’ header wrapping up a memorable win.
