Crusaders have made a winning start to their defence of the Danske Bank Premiership title.

They beat 10-man Ards 4-2 at Seaview on Monday night.

New signing from Derry City Rory Patterson scored on his debut but also had a spectacular penalty miss.

Here's the Crues manager Stephen Baxter....

The North Down side had midfielder Josh Kelly sent off.

Derry City are on course to lift their first trophy for six years.

It's after they beat Sligo Rovers 1-0 to qualify for the final of the E-A Sports Cup.

Their opponents in the decider will be Cobh Ramblers, who had a shock last four victory over holders Dundalk.
