RODNEY Brown insists he has had to be patient to wait for his opportunity after netting in yesterday’s comeback win against Portadown…

Coleraine would fall behind on 12 minutes through Greg Moorhouse’s close range finish but then turned the game on its head to lead 3-1 at the break through goals from Brown, Matthew Shevlin and Conor McKendry, with Michael McCrudden sealing the deal just after the hour mark.

Brown commented on McKendry’s first-half performance as the winger had a say in all three goals, before remarking on his own return to the side in recent weeks after the form of others in his position.

With a young side expected to take to the pitch in the North-West Cup final on Tuesday night, Brown spoke about the upcoming Danske Bank Premiership encounter away to Cliftonville.
