Match Highlights vs Glenavon

HIGHLIGHTS from the Bannsiders’ 3-1 defeat to Glenavon can now be viewed on the club’s official YouTube account…

After Jamie Glackin would see a shot saved by Rory Brown, the visitors would also go close as Peter Campbell misfired when well positioned inside the area. However, Campbell would go one better on 26 minutes as he fired into the bottom corner from Conor McCloskey’s cut back.

The Bannsiders would hit back twelve minutes later as Matthew Shevlin was fouled inside the area by Brown. This led to referee Shane Andrews pointing to the spot as Shevlin smashed home his sixth goal of the season.

Gary Hamiton’s side would go back in front on 47 minutes as a strike from Robbie Garrett took a wicked deflection off Rodney Brown and went into the net via the post. Minutes later, Matthew Fitzpatrick would spurn a glorious chance as he fired wide from Isaac Baird’s through ball.

Just after the hour mark, Coleraine would fall further behind as a ball over the top by Michael Glynn released the run of Fitzpatrick and the ex-Bannsider found the bottom corner.

With more than ten minutes remaining, Oran Kearney’s side would see a strong penalty appeal turned away as Conor McKendry’s cross appeared to strike the hand of Danny Wallace.
