LITTLE BETWEEN BANNSIDERS AND PORTS AT THE SHOWGROUNDS

In the end Coleraine and Portadown couldn't be separated at The Showgrounds as the busy schedule of games continued at pace.
 
Getting off to a quiet start, the first effort of note came on 21 minutes when Eoin Bradley ran onto a misplaced Adam McCallum pass to fire over under pressure from Paul Finnegan.
 
The Ports had a great chance five minutes later but Barney McKeown's close range effort was kept out by Martin Gallagher's feet.
 
The Bannsiders might have led at the break through Curtis Allen but his attempted lob of Jacob Carney was cleared off the line by Eamon Scannell.
 
Aaron Canning had an effort early in the second half, although his curling shot eventually went well over while, on 56 minutes, Stephen Lowry saw a shot from the edge of area saved by Carney.
 
But, on 66 minutes, Coleraine did move in front. Substitute Stewart Nixon, only on the pitch a matter of moments, touched a left-foot shot home at the near post after his own cross had been initially cleared.
 
However it proved to be a short lived lead. The Ports levelled just seven minutes later when Chris Lavery picked out Adam Salley with a cross from the left, and he responded with a well controlled effort past Gallagher into the top corner.
 
Coleraine looked to restore their advantage with Lowry placing a shot just wide while Nixon had an effort deflected over.
 
The visitors were reduced to ten men with a few minutes remaining following Salley's dismissal for a challenge on Lyndon Kane.
