Irish Premiership: Dungannon Swifts 1-0 Coleraine

Dungannon Swifts end Coleraine's unbeaten start to the season with a 1-0 victory at Stangmore Park

The Irish Premiership's last remaining unbeaten record ended as Coleraine fell to defeat away to Dungannon Swifts.

Substitute Chris Lavery scored the only goal at Stangmore Park in the 73rd minute to lift Dunganon up to fourth in the table.

Lavery netted a close-range rebound after David McCullough's shot had been parried out by keeper Wayne Drummond.

Coleraine almost saved their unbeaten record in stoppage-time when Stephen Lowry's header came off an upright.

In the first half, Coleraine striker Gary Browne sent an early shot wide and Dungannon's Stefan Lavery was denied by Aaron Canning's timely challenge.

Early in the second half, Shane Jennings had a great chance to put Coleraine into the lead, but put his finish wide after being one-on-one with keeper Gareth Buchanan
