McGonigle at the double for Bannsiders thumbnailJamie McGonigle opens the scoring for Coleraine at Ferney Park.

THE Fermanagh air obviously agrees with Coleraine striker Jamie McGonigle.
Back in September he scored twice to help his side to a 3-0 win over Ballinamallard Utd at Ferney Park.
At the weekend he was at it again, bagging a brace as the Bannsiders completed a hat-trick of wins over the Ducks.
The margin of victory wasn't quite as comprehensive this time, the visitors hanging on to win 2-1, but three points are thre points however they come.
McGonigle reacted quickest to prod home a Darren McAuley volley in the first half and showed great alertness to seize on a poor headed back pass to double his side's advantage after the break.
Ross Taheny, whose header led to McGonigle's second, made amends by pulling a goal back for the hosts but despite late pressure they failed to get a second goal and earn a share of the points.
The victory made it five wins on the bounce for Coleraine who look to have recovered some of their early season confidence following a poor run of form in December.
