Match Highlights vs Ballymena United
COLERAINE TV highlights from the Bannsiders’ 1-0 win against Ballymena United can now be viewed on the club’s official YouTube account…
The Stripes would reach the quarter-final of the BetMcLean League Cup as Conor McKendry’s strike edged out United at the Ballymena Showgrounds.
A scoreless first-half would see the hosts threaten through Conor Keeley and Kenny Kane, whilst at the other end, Lyndon Kane fired over the crossbar from distance.
United would miss another chance at the start of the second-half as Kane fired wide yet again, with Coleraine much improved after the break with Conor McDermott, Matthew Shevlin and Conor McKendry being denied.
Coleraine would be presented with the perfect opportunity to take the lead as Shevlin was tugged inside the box, however, the same player would see his penalty saved as Michael Place was sent off.
The breakthrough would arrive on 80 minutes as Lee Lynch released Jamie Glackin on the right-hand side and his cross was prodded home by McKendry at the back post.
