Players walk off after Glentoran and Coleraine draw 0-0 at the Oval

Q Radio Sport

Coleraine are back on top of the Danske Bank Premiership after a scoreless draw with Glentoran at the Oval yesterday.

The visitors had Josh Carson sent off in the first half for a late tackle and John McGuigan missed a stoppage time penalty for the Glens.

McGuigan slipped and sent his effort well wide, but Bannsiders boss Oran Kearney felt justice was done.

Glens manager Gary Haveron says he was "gutted" to miss out on the three points...

And he revealed McGuigan had been wearing "mouldies" instead of studs, saying the boots were not suitable for the wet surface.

Coleraine lose their 100 per cent record but stay unbeaten and move a point above Linfield who had been the overnight leaders after Friday's 4-1 victory at Warrenpoint.


Glenavon are up to third after they beat Ards 3-0 at Mourneview Park. Mark Sykes struck twice. 

The Lurgan Blues replace Crusaders who dropped points at home for the second successive Saturday, drawing 1-1 with Dungannon.

Chris Hegarty equalised for the Swifts, the defender scoring for the third week in a row.

Cliftonville came from behind to win 2-1 at Carrick with sub Joe Gormley grabbing both goals. 

Ballymena had a 3-1 victory away to Ballinamallard, who stay bottom with one point from eight games.
