Match Highlights vs Carrick Rangers

HIGHLIGHTS from the Bannsiders’ victory against Carrick Rangers can now be viewed on the club’s official YouTube account…

The Stripes would create the first meaningful opportunity of the game as Matthew Shevlin struck into the body of Ross Glendinning after latching onto a through ball.

On 19 minutes, the hosts would threaten as persistence from David Cushley presented the ball to Lloyd Anderson inside the box and he fired over from close range.

Soon after, the ball would hit the back of the net as Cameron Stewart headed in from a corner, but thankfully for Coleraine, the goal was disallowed for an infringement in the box.

On the stroke of half-time, the Bannsiders had Gareth Deane to thank as the stopper somehow tipped Kyle Cherry’s shot over the bar.

Oran Kearney’s men were much improved after the break and threatened on several occasions as Josh Carson, Conor McDermott, Adam Mullan and Lee Lynch all went close to finding the back of the net.

However, the breakthrough would arrive on 82 minutes as a ball forward wasn’t dealt with by the Carrick defence and Carson’s turn and shot found the top corner.
