SALLEY AND ANDERSON STRIKE FOR PORTS

Portadown picked up a huge three points with a two-goal victory over Coleraine at Shamrock Park.

With a strong crossfield wind making life difficult for the players it was perhaps no surprise chances were at something of a premium.

Adam Salley was twice off target for the Ports early on, with home keeper Jethren Barr dealt with efforts from Patrick Kelly, Eoin Bradley and Stephen Lowry.

Lowry then sent a later long range effort over the bar while Andrew Mitchell saw a point blank range header well kept out by Barr.

Oisin Conaty came close to scoring after the break when his right-foot volley from inside the area looked destined for the top corner but was brilliantly kept out by Bannsiders keeper Gareth Deane.

However, the Ports did go in front on 64 minutes when, on the counter attack, Adam Salley beat the offside trap to slot home the opener moments after another Mitchell effort at the other end was denied by Barr.

Then, just five minutes after that, Harry Anderson thumped home number two with a back post header after getting on the end of Jamal Dupree's cross.

The win moves the Ports to within a point of 10th placed Carrick Rangers and only four adrift of Dungannon Swifts in the battle to avoid being dragged into a play-off spot.
