Match Highlights vs Cliftonville

HIGHLIGHTS from the Bannsiders’ draw against Cliftonville is now available to watch on the club’s official YouTube account…

The Stripes would pick up a point for their efforts after a 2-2 draw against the Reds at Solitude.

The hosts would take the lead on 11 minutes as Ronan Hale’s strike from distance went under the body of Martin Gallagher and into the net, with the stopper being alert soon after to thwart Rory Hale after the midfielder was found by Kris Lowe.

Coleraine would threaten in the opening 45 minutes through Conor McKendry as the winger shot off target, before the same player would just miss a vital touch onto Conor McDermott’s cross.

After Lyndon Kane would see a drive parried away by Nathan Gartside, the north Belfast side would double their advantage as Ronan Doherty’s direct corner kick sailed into the back of the net.

However, Coleraine would respond and halved the deficit on 64 minutes as Matthew Shevlin was fouled inside the box and comfortably dispatched from 12 yards, with the same player making it two goals in as many minutes as he met Jamie Glackin’s cross to level the scores.

The Bannsiders would have Gallagher to thank before the full-time whistle as the goalkeeper twice denied Joe Gormley, as well as Ronan Hale to preserve a point.
