Coleraine 2-0 Cliftonville

Coleraine made it 16 matches without defeat after they beat Cliftonville 2-0 at the Showgrounds to move five points ahead of the north Belfast club in the Premiership league table.

David Kee missed the chance to give Coleraine the lead just before half-time when he collected Eoin Bradley’s deflected free kick from the edge of the six-yard box, but his scuffed shot was easily saved.

But Coleraine did take the lead just after the restart when Darren McCauley rifled home a left foot drive to score his seventh goal of the season.

McCauley doubled Coleraine’s lead in the 72nd minute when he collected Adam Mullan’s through ball to rifle home into the top right hand corner.
