Match Highlights vs Linfeld

HIGHLIGHTS from the Bannsiders’ 0-0 draw against Linfield can now be viewed on the club’s official YouTube account…

It would be a case of the defences at The Showgrounds as neither side went close to breaking the deadlock at The Showgrounds.

In front of a full capacity, the first chance would fall at the feet of Conor McDermott but the full-back’s strike was easily gathered by Chris Johns.

After Joel Cooper flashed a free-kick inches wide, the Blues would spurn the chance of the game on the stroke of half-time as Stephen Fallon headed over from Kirk Millar’s cross.

With less than a minute of the second-half played, Coleraine would threaten as Josh Carson’s free-kick forced Johns into a save before Jamie Glackin failed to find the target from 25 yards.

The final opportunity of the contest would be created by Linfield as Cooper teed up Fallon but his effort fizzed wide.
