Bannsiders & Glens draw at Showgrounds

Coleraine and Glentoran draw 1-1 at the Showgrounds with Jonathan Smith's penalty cancelling out an early James McLaughlin goal.

Smith rammed home his 77th-minute penalty after Coleraine defender Stephen Douglas had been sent off for a handball offence which led to his second yellow card.

As Glentoran dominated the second half, Curtis Allen twice hit the woodwork and also missed another chance but Elliot Morris had to make a fine late save to deny Coleraine's Jamie McGonigle.

Fifth-place Coleraine remain six points ahead of the Glens.
