Crusaders v Coleraine Preview

 It's another big game at Seaview on Saturday in the Danske Bank Premiership as Crusaders and Coleraine clash in a match sponsored by Eventsec (3pm) The meeting of the two sides a few weeks ago saw Coleraine win 4-1 but Crusaders will want to avenge this defeat and collect three points this time round. The 1st v 2nd is the game of the day and a big game is wxpected.

Crusaders will field a different side to the one that went out of the Co. Antrim Shield mid week. Gerard Doherty should return in nets while Billy Joe Burns and Colin Coates should return in defence. Chris Hegarty may return if fit but Howard Beverland will be ready to start if called on and we wait to see who gets the nod between Jarlath O'Rourke, Michael Ruddy and Rodney Browne for the left back position. The midfield will be shuffled and Paul Heatley, Rory Hale and Ross Clarke all expected to return. Philip Lowry could also return if he is fit while David Cushley pushes for a start after a good performance on Tuesday night. Paul McElroy and Gary Thompson and Paul McElroy are another two who are ready to start. Jordan Owens left the game early against Ballymena Utd so Jamie McGonigle will lead the line. Stephen Baxter will look for nothing less than three points from this game as he looks to stay ahead of the pack in the Premiership.

Oran Kearney brings his Coleraine side to Seaview in good form. They won again last week with a victory over Warrenpoint and remain the only unbeaten side this season. 

So all set for this cracking game. We want you to be there and with a big crowd expected try and be early to get your seat. Admission is £12 & £8 and as always Crusaders supporters are in the Main Stand and Harry Corry Stands. Bring your Red and Black with you and get behind the lads like you do every week with your vocal support. Be loud and be proud and see you at the game. Keep The Faith.
