Penalty placement key for Doherty

BEN Doherty was named as Coleraine TV Man of the Match as he netted two penalties in the success against Portadown at The Showgrounds…

The midfielder labelled the win ‘as a good three points’ but admits the Bannsiders had to work for the success after a below-par first-half performance.

Doherty netted a penalty in each half and the ex-Derry City ace admits he decides in the changing room where he is for placing the ball before despatching from 12 yards.

The former Northern Ireland under-21 international acknowledged that he is feeling good after being absent through a broken collarbone sustained in January against Carrick Rangers.

The Stripes now turn their focus to Dungannon Swifts on Saturday and Doherty highlighted the change in management at Stangmore Park means there is a ‘weight off the players”.
