Andy Waterworth beats Howard Beverland to a header (Picture: Russell Pritchard/


GLENTORAN secured a point from this top of the table clash with Coleraine despite playing most of the game with ten men.

Eddie Patterson's side lost Mark Clarke eight minutes before the break following a challenge on Ruairi Harkin which prompted referee Raymond Crangle to produce a straight red card.

Up until that point the game had been a fairly quiet affair with the highlight being a 20th minute Stephen Carson free-kick which looked destined for the top corner only for Bannsiders 'keeper Gavin Cullen to pull off a difficult save.

Coleraine's first real opportunity came four minutes into the second half when both Curtis Allen and Stephen Lowry went to shoot with the result seeing the ball go high and wide.

David Ogilby then tested Elliott Morris with a free-kick before the Glens 'keeper was called into action again to tip over a long range Lowry effort.

The Glens did have the ball in the net on 68 minutes when Andy Waterworth slotted past Cullen only for the 'goal' to fall foul off the offside rule.

Both sides could have grabbed stoppage time winners.

Allen glanced a header narrowly wide of the far post while, at the other end, Waterworth was denied only by a last gasp Ogilby tackle.
