CRUES SECURE TOP SIX PLACE

Crusaders defeated Dungannon Swifts by two goals at Stangmore Park to secure a top six berth.
 
Rhyss Campbell might have edged the Swifts into the lead when his powerful effort was saved by Sean O'Neill.
 
However, it was the Crues who moved in front moments later when, from a counter attack, Paul Heatley showed great composure to slot the ball past Roy Carroll.
 
It might have been 2-0 a few minutes after that when a Jamie McGonigle effort was parried into Adam Lecky's path but his acrobatic effort was pushed away while, at the other end, Michael Carvill's shot was headed to safety by Billy Joe Burns.
 
McGonigle had a couple of effort to double the visiting lead, seeing one effort from a tight angle just fail to find the net while another was kept out by the woodwork.
 
But the Crues did double their advantage on 54 minutes when Jordan Forsythe found himself free in the area to connect with a corner and head home a powerful corner.
 
To their credit, Dungannon did try to get back into the game with Caolan McAleer having a chance and then Ryan Mayse firing straight at O'Neill.
 
Crusaders also had chances to add to their lead with Jarlath O'Rourke seeing a header well saved by Carroll and again from Rodney Brown and Heatley later in proceedings.
