- Cove Rangers 0-3 Crusaders
Stephen Baxter's Crusaders saw off Cove Rangers with a comfortable 0-3 win in Scotland.
Crusaders took the lead just before the interval when Michael Carvill nipped in ahead of the Cove defence to lob over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.
The Crues' challenge was then boosted further in the second half when their Scottish hosts were reduced to 10 men - Scott Ross dismissed on 55 minutes for a second bookable offence.
Crusaders went 2-up when Jamie Glackin netted, scoring from close-range to put the visitors in the driving seat.
The Crues put the gloss on things at the end, with Declan Caddell netting to see off the home side's challenge in convincing fashion.
90 + 6 mins: FT: Dundee Utd 1 - 0 Linfield. The home side grab a late win. Linfield will rue their numerous missed chances this evening.
- Crusaders 1-1 Dungannon
Crusaders and Dungannon ended all square at Seaview.
It was a quiet affair in the first half, with chances at a premium.
Jordan Owens came close on 35 minutes for the Crues, but blasted wide from close-range.
Just before the interval, there was a dangerous ball in from Glackin which found the head of Owens at back post - but goalkeeper Stuart Addis collected the header comfortably.
In the early stages of the second half, the slumbersome pace to the match continued.
Dungannon did try and test Crues goalkeeper Brian Jensen from distance, but the Danish goalkeeper collected with ease Burke's 30-yard effort.
The Crues did break the deadlock however, Jordan Owens getting the better of Addis finally.
However the frustration continued - Crusaders could only keep the lead for a minute-and-a-half.
Chris Heggarty headed home - his third goal in three games.
The Crues came close again late on - Declan Caddell's great ball finding Jordan Owens, but again Addis denied him with a great save.
Baxter's side continued to press for a winner but it didn't come as Dungannon held out.
- Ballinamallard 1-5 Crusaders
Crusaders enjoyed a comfortable 5-1 win at Ballinamallard.
Crusaders took the early lead at Ballinamallard, Paul Heatley converting Jordan Owens' flick-on, with the Mallards' defenders left flat-footed.
Stephen Baxter's side made it two just before the break when Philip Lowry nipped in to score from a long throw-in - scoring from just seven yards out.
Ballinamallard pulled one back, Ryan Curran neatly controlling before driving the ball home past Brian Jensen.
However the home side's hope was soon extinguished again as Heatley clinically scored his second of the day.
Heatley then completed his hat-trick at Ferney Park, his sixth league goal of the season to make it 4-1, and that was followed by a smart finish from Jordan Owens.
- Crusaders 1-2 Coleraine
Coleraine took the advantage against Stephen Baxter's Crues when Eoin Bradley headed home from close range, after pressure had been building from the Bannsiders.
O'Donnell doubled that advantage when he reacted quickest to head downwards and home for 2-0.
David Ogilby was dismissed for a second yellow card for the visitors after the re-start.
Jordan Forsyth pulled one back for the Shore Road side late on.
