CRUES FIGHT BACK TO CLAIM THE POINTS

Crusaders fought back from a goal down to secure all three points from this Sky Sports game at Seaview.

Shane McGinty opened the scoring for the Mallards just after a quarter-of-an-hour had elapsed but three second half goals saw Stephen Baxter's side pick up yet another victory at the top of the table.

Jordan Owens levelled around the hour mark before Paul Heatley showed his class with two goals in four minutes a short time later.
