Glenavon 0-4 Crusaders

League Cup winners Crusaders brushed aside the challenge of Glenavon to reach the last eight of the Irish Cup.

Chris Morrow took one touch and smashed the ball into the net on the half hour and the midfielder headed in from a David Magowan free-kick on 70 minutes.

David Rainey made up for missing an early chance by scoring three minutes from time and then Morrow was again the provider for striker Jordan Owens to head in during added time.

The Crues were drawn away to Coleraine.

Rainey missed an early gilt-edged opportunity, while Andrew Mitchell had a good chance for Glenavon.

Stephen McBride made a vital interception to block a Kyle Neill cross before Morrow broke the deadlock.

John Convery squandered a chance to equalise for Glenavon.

The Crues were comfortably the better side and deserved their eventual winning margin.
