BANNSIDERS POWER PAST PORTS
Coleraine extended their unbeaten run to 11 games across all competitions after coming from behind to defeat bottom of the table Portadown at the Showgrounds.
Greg Moorhouse fired the visitors in front after 12 minutes after got on the end of a long ball into the box to flick the finish past keeper Martin Gallagher.
Rodney Brown levelled for the Bannsiders midway through the first half with a left-foot volley into the roof of the net after the ball fell for him from Conor McKendry's run and cross inside the area.
Then, ten minutes after that, Matthew Shevlin edged Coleraine in front with a curled effort past Jethren Barr with McKendry again playing his part with a run causing difficulties for the visiting defence.
It was perhaps fitting, then, when McKendry got his name on the scoresheet in first half stoppage time when he connected with a Jamie Glackin cross.
Michael McCrudden then completed the scoring just after the hour with a close range finish from a Conor McDermott cross.
