Coleraine comfortably saw off the challenge of Ballinamallard to book their Irish Cup quarter-final place.

Curtis Allen scored a 23rd-minute penalty after David Scullion had been brought down inside the area.

A Ciaran Clarke piledriver a minute before the interval made it 2-0.

Allen headed in his second in the 47th minute after Shane Jennings' long range drive came off the bar and Coleraine will now have a chance to avenge their League Cup final defeat by Crusaders.
