If every match was like this then the crowds would be flocking back to the IPL but of course there are always the knockers who prefer their football the prima donna way. We lost this game in the first 15 minutes when we gifted Coleraine two goals which they took excellently. We battled our way back into the game from a free kick scored by Michael Carvill and had a stonewall penalty turned down when Peter Thompson was taken down by their keeper - how many is that we should have had this season? Anyhow our second half performance and chances deserved at least one goal which came two minutes from the end but then when we chased the winner we were hit with a sucker punch. We had the ball in their area and rather than take the opportunity to shoot we pussy footed about trying to tee the ball up to get the perfect shot and they broke away and scored! Difficult task now to get back into the title race as this result will give every other team in the league a spur but leagues are not won or lost in October - there're a lot of points still to play for.
Goal scorers: Michael Carvill, Ryan Henderson.
