BANNSIDERS CLINCH TOP SIX BERTH

COLERAINE came from a goal down at Stangmore Park to defeat Dungannon Swifts and claim their place in the top six.

The Swifts snatched the advantage on 19 minutes when Matt Hazley fired home straight from a corner.

But Coleraine levelled a minute later through Gareth Tommons with a back post header.

Then, on 37 minutes, the Bannsiders seized the half-time lead after Stephen Lowry fired beyond Johnny Curran into the top corner.

Curtis Allen extended Coleraine's lead eight minutes into the second half when he connected with a Ryan McIlmoyle corner to turn a header past Curran.

Stefan Lavery might have pulled one back for Dungannon a few minutes later after his shot slipped through Michael Doherty's hands before connecting with the crossbar.
