Faltering Crusaders not in crisis - Ward

Crusaders defender Sean Ward says Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Ballymena United was "very disappointing" but the struggling champions are not in crisis.

It was a second straight league loss for Stephen Baxter's team and leaves them fifth in the Premiership standings.

Crusaders lie 12 points behind pacesetters Glenavon after a sixth defeat from 13 league matches.
