Crusaders stretched their winning streak to three games with this ultimately comfortable four goal defeat of Dungannon Swifts at Seaview.

The Crues might have gone ahead after six minutes after Paul Heatley skipped past a couple of defenders before crossing for Gavin Whyte who couldn't find the target.

Heatley was then denied just after the half-hour mark by Andy Coleman.

However, the Crues did seize the advantage three minutes from the break after Josh Robinson headed a Richard Clarke corner home after the Swifts defence failed to clear.

Jordan Owens made it 2-0 on 65 minutes with a well executed header before adding a third - and his second of the game - seven minutes later after taking the ball past a number of defenders before firing past Coleman.

Number four for the Crues arrived on 78 minutes courtesy of Matthew Snoddy with a composed finish following an assured build-up.
