Braniff goal sees Glenavon beat Coleraine

A goal from Kevin Braniff on the hour mark ensures that Glenavon continue their impressive run of form by beating Coleraine 1-0 at Ballycastle Road.

The forward's headed effort came against the run of play as the hosts created the better of the second-half scoring opportunities.

The Lurgan Blues were reduced to 10 men late on when Kris Lindsay was sent-off for a second bookable offence, a handball inside the area, with seven minutes remaining.

James McLaughlin squandered a good chance to equalise when he saw his resulting spot-kick well saved by goalkeeper Jonny Tuffey.
