Crusaders captain Colin Coates has left the club after 18 years.

The 34-year-old defender moves to Glenavon on an 18-month contract. 

It's Irish Cup last 16 weekend with teams from lower divisions aiming to shock Premiership opposition.

Championship club Queen's University are targeting another major upset at The Dub.

They knocked Linfield out in the previous round and on Saturday they'll be hoping for a repeat performance against Glentoran.

The Danske Bank Premiership leaders needed penalties to beat Portadown in their fifth round tie.

In-form Glens forward Navid Nasseri is expecting another fight to the finish against the students.

Banbridge Town from the Irish League's third tier travel to Coleraine.

Town manager Stuart King is an ex-Linfield player.

He'll be up against former Blues teammates, including Bannsiders assistant boss William Murphy...

King is also having his say on the Glens game. He reckons another shock could be on the cards...
