Coleraine 2-1 Lisburn Distillery

Coleraine moved to the top of the Premiership as they edged out Lisburn Distillery at the Showgrounds.

David Ogilby headed the Bannsiders into the lead on 10 minutes and Stephen Lowry doubled the advantage on 19.

Gary Liggett squandered two Whites chances before the break with Michael Halliday also hitting the woodwork.

After Coleraine's Kyle McVeigh was sent off, Jordan Hughes and Liggett missed further Whites chances before Liggett's 88th-minute goal for the visitors.

Coleraine's Paul Owens still had time to rattle the Distillery woodwork as Coleraine moved to the top of the table as a result of Cliftonville's surprise home defeat by Ballinamallard.

Ogilby headed Coleraine into the lead as he connected with a Ryan McIlmoyle cross with Lowry netting the second nine minutes later.

The Bannsiders were also grateful to keeper Gavin Cullen who made a fine save to deny Hughes in the opening period.

However, Cullen should have been picking the ball out of the net on two occasions in the first half as Liggett spurned two glorious chances when he only had the keeper to beat.

McVeigh received a straight red card in the 54th minute as he was the last match in defence when he hauled down Liggett.
