COLERAINE came from behind to beat border side Newry at the Showgrounds on Saturday.

Neil Alderdice headed Newry ahead on 29 minutes from a corner and the visitors stayed in front until Stephen Lowry’s close-range finish after 67 minutes.

Mark Mukendi was on target again. He fired low into the net six minutes later to give the Bannsiders the lead while Newry’s Darren Murray was sent-off seconds later for dissent.

Leon Knight sealed the points with a superb shot four minutes from time.

Donegal Celtic’s victory at Ballymena means Newry are a point adrift at the bottom.

Coleraine travel to Glentoran this Saturday in the Irish Cup
