Danske Bank Premiership leaders Coleraine have been hit by a double injury blow with Brad Lyons and Eoin Bradley set to be ruled out for the next two months.

The club has said midfielder Lyons has had surgery to repair fractured cheekbones sustained in last weekend’s win over Linfield.

Manager Oran Kearney says he'll be unavailable "for at least six to eight weeks, if not more."

Scan results have confirmed striker Bradley has knee ligament damage and Kearney says he's also likely to be missing for up to eight weeks.

Stripes skipper David Ogilby says while it's disappointing news, other players will now get a chance to shine, like Joe McCready did against the Blues on Saturday...

The unbeaten Bannsiders travel to Crusaders on Tuesday night in the last 16 of the League Cup. 

Ards host Glenavon in the only other third round tie with both games starting at 7.45pm.
