BANNSIDERS TOO STRONG FOR PORTS

Coleraine remain third in the standings following a two-goal victory over Portadown at The Showgrounds.

The sides traded chances during the opening exchanges with Conor McKendry being denied by Ports keeper Jethren Barr while, at the other end, Adam Salley fired straight at Gareth Deane.

McKendry threatened again with an effort from the edge of the area which deflected off Paul Finnegan but Barr was able to scramble to push the ball over before Jamie Glackin saw an effort hooked off the line at the back post.

The deadlock was broken on 28 minutes. Matthew Shevlin sprung the offside trap to deliver a cross into the box but, in his attempt to clear the danger, Finnegan could only slide in to turn the ball into his own net.

Chances were at a premium after the break with Lyndon Kane and McKendry offering up the best moments albeit with long range attempts with didn't trouble Barr.

For the Ports Stephen Teggart headed just over while, late on, Lee Bonis could only turn the ball over after meeting a Teggart cross.

However, the Bannsiders made sure of the points deep into stoppage time when McKendry picked out Shevlin who made no mistake in making it 2-0 to complete the scoring.
