‘It’s all about who turns up on the day’

‘It’s all about who turns up on the day’ thumbnailA delighted Eoin Bradley is all smiles after coming off the bench to score the only goal of the game in the 1-0 defeat of Dungannonn Swifts at the weekend. The Kilrea man could be a big player when the top two teams in the league meet on Saturday.

COLERAINE manager Oran Kearney believes previous league games between the Danske Bank Premiership's top two will have little bearing on what happens when Crusaders visit the Showgrounds this Saturday. The Bannsiders hold the upper hand on this weekend's opponents having defeated the Crues on their own patch back in August before gaining a 1-1 draw at Ballycastle Road at the end of November.
However, the visitors go into Saturday's crunch encounter on the back of a long unbeaten run which has seen them replace long-time leaders Coleraine at the head of affairs.
A stoppage time goal from leading scorer Jordan Owens earned Crusaders a 1-0 win over Ards while Eoin Bradley climbed off the bench to rescue his side with a late winner away at Dungannon.
“I don't know about prime position whoever wins on Saturday as we've still got 14 or 15 games left to play," admitted Oran.
