DUNGANNON 1 COLERAINE 0
Chris Lavery came off the bench to fire Dungannon Swifts to their third league win of the season against Coleraine on Saturday.
The young winger scored with a left foot finish in the 73rd minute after David McCullough’s shot had been parried.
In a game of few chances, Coleraine’s best efforts fell to Shane Jennings, but he slotted one just past the back post before sending a drive narrowly wide from 25 yards. He also hit the post with an injury-time header.
It was the Bannsiders’ first defeat of the season.
