Dungannon Swifts 0-0 Coleraine

Both sides wasted good chances as the Carling Premiership opener at Stangmore Park ended in a stalemate.

Bannsiders striker Curtis Allen was first to miss out with a half-volley before Dungannon's Terry Fitzpatrick flashed a free-kick wide.

Swifts forward Michael Ward failed to convert from six yards and Coleraine's Shane Jennings hit the woodwork.

Coleraine's Howard Beverland was red-carded in the dying seconds after fouling the goalbound Stefan Lavery.
