BBC Sport - Irish Premiership: Brilliant Bannsiders stun sorry Reds

Brilliant Bannsiders stun sorry Reds

Coleraine boost their prospects of achieving a European spot as they earn a 3-1 win over Cliftonville in the Irish Premiership game at Solitude.

Goals from Rodney Brown and outstanding James McLaughlin put the dominant Bannsiders 2-0 up inside 12 minutes.

Brad Lyons hit Coleraine's third goal on 52 minutes with David McDaid replying for the Reds in injury-time.

Cliftonville looked to be suffering a hangover following last weekend's defeat by leaders Crusaders, which probably ended any lingering Reds hopes of regaining the league title.

In contrast, Coleraine demonstrated huge appetite for the contest as they ran the lethargic Reds ragged in the crucial first period.
