Coleraine crashed to their first domestic defeat of the season last night, losing 3-2 to Crusaders in a League Cup last 16 cracker at Seaview.

Man of the match Jordan Forsythe struck twice for the Crues.


Declan Caddell grabbed the 75th-minute winner and said the victory was a boost after last weekend's 3-2 league loss at home to Glenavon.



Gareth McConaghie and Jamie McGonigle netted for the Danske Bank Premiership leaders.


But Stripes keeper Chris Johns says the Crues deserved their victory.


Bannsiders boss Oran Kearney was disappointed with his team's defending.



Ards also made it through to the quarter-finals, beating Glenavon 4-0 in Bangor with a double for former Linfield forward Jonny Frazer.

Both teams made a number of changes from their usual line-ups.
