Match Highlights vs Crusaders

HIGHLIGHTS from the Bannsiders’ draw against Crusaders can now be viewed on the club’s official YouTube account…

The Stripes would leave Seaview with a share of the spoils following a 1-1 against Stephen Baxter’s side.

After both teams would create half chances, Coleraine would take the lead from the penalty spot after Conor McKendry was brought down inside the area by Philip Lowry. The resulting spot-kick was lashed home by Josh Carson for his fifth goal of the campaign.

Crusaders would make a bright start to the second-half and threatened on numerous occasions, including Ben Kennedy’s strike that cannoned off the crossbar. However, they would equalise from the spot themselves after Lyndon Kane was dismissed for bringing down Jay Boyd, with Jordan Forsythe making no mistake from 12 yards.

The hosts would enjoy the lion’s share of possession and territory with the extra man but Oran Kearney’s side nearly stole all three points at the death as Jamie McGonigle’s low effort was turned around the post by Johnny Tuffey.
