Coleraine and Ballinamallard share the spoils after a 0-0 draw at Ballycastle Road Showgrounds

Ballinamallard remain two points clear of Coleraine in the Premiership after this goalless draw at Ballycastle Road.

In the first half, Coleraine's Curtis Allen sidefooted a shot at Alvin Rouse, while Mark Stafford headed over the bar three times at the other end.

Rouse also denied Stephen Lowry while Andy Crawford headed over for Mallards.

Michael Doherty did well to save a ground shot from Chris Curran and then Michael Hegarty shot wide of the target for the Bannsiders.

Central defender Kyle McVey headed wide late on.

Fifth-placed Coleraine have an opportunity to leapfrog Ballinamallard in the standings when they face Cliftonville at Solitide on Tuesday night.
