It's been quite a weekend for Coleraine fans.

The Bannsiders maintained their 100 per cent start to the Danske Bank Premiership by beating Crusaders 2-1 at Seaview yesterday.



Meanwhile, their derby rivals Ballymena crashed to a 6-1 defeat at home to Glenavon, who go top of the table on goal difference.

All the goals at Warden Street were scored in the second half by different players, including a penalty from former Northern Ireland international Sammy Clingan.

The Lurgan Blues have added to their squad by signing winger Josh Daniels from Derry City on a two-year deal.

Coleraine had defender David Ogilby sent off mid-way through the second half but still triumphed against the Crues thanks to first-half goals from Stephen O'Donnell and Eoin Bradley.



Manager Oran Kearney is full of praise for his players.

The Coleraine defence held firm as Crusaders pushed for an equaliser to avoid a rare home defeat - here's left-back Adam Mullan.

Crues manager Stephen Baxter accused his players of swanning around like prima donnas and serving up a load of rubbish.

Defender Howard Beverland admits it was a bitterly disappointing display against his former club.


Coleraine are third in the table on goal difference, just behind Linfield who beat Dungannon 4-0 at Stangmore Park.


A goal from Darren Murray gave Warrenpoint their first win since returning to the Premiership - it finished 1-0 against Ards at Milltown.

Glentoran were held to a one-all draw at the Oval by Carrick and it was also one-each between Ballinamallard and Ciftonville.
