Crues too strong for weakened Reds

Two goals from Colin Coates and a Jordan Owens headed effort help Crusaders secure a 3-0 victory over under-strength champions Cliftonville at Seaview.

After a goal-less first half, Coates netted a 58th-minute penalty after David Rainey had been brought down by goalkeeper Ryan Brown.

Owens headed the second goal on 66 minutes while Coates blasted in the third a minute from time.

The match was originally postponed in February because of a loyalist protest.
