HIGHLIGHTS from the Bannsiders’ win against Warrenpoint Town are now available to watch on the club’s official YouTube channel…
The Bannsiders would move up to second in the Danske Bank Premiership as a first-half brace from Curtis Allen done the damage at The Showgrounds.
Oran Kearney’s men would hit the front on 10 minutes as Matthew Shevlin held the ball up for Ian Parkhill. The winger burst through and squared the ball for Allen who made no mistake from close range.
Nine minutes later, the lead was doubled as Warrenpoint failed to clear their lines from a corner and Parkhill’s drive was controlled by Allen who turned and fired into the top corner.
After Jamie Glackin had a goal bound effort cleared off the line, the visitors would half the deficit on 30 minutes as Jake O’Connor’s cut back found Fra McCaffrey who rifled into the net.
The second-half was a more cagey affair and Barry Gray’s men thought they had equalised on 70 minutes as Gareth Deane produced a magnificent save to deny Adam Carroll, with Brandon Doyle’s rebound also clawed away by the shot stopper.
Coleraine almost put the game to bed with minutes remaining as Eoin Bradley’s cross picked out Parkhill but the winger would be denied by Gabriel Sava.
