Match Highlights vs Crusaders

HIGHLIGHTS from the Bannsiders’ defeat to Crusaders can now be viewed on the club’s official YouTube account…

Coleraine would lose 3-1 in north Belfast as three second-half goals from the hosts sealed all three points for Stephen Baxter’s side.

The Stripes would hold a half-time lead as Jordan Forsythe brought down Andy Scott inside the area, allowing Michael McCrudden to net his 7th goal of the season from the spot.

However, the Crues would be awarded a penalty of their own seven minutes into the second-half as Jack O’Mahony was adjudged to have handled from a corner kick. The resulting spot kick was emphatically finished by Jordan Forsythe.

This sparked the Irish Cup finalists into life and they scored a second through Philip Lowry’s header, before making sure of the win on 77 minutes as Forsythe added his second of the evening from close range.
