Crusaders 3-3 Cliftonville

Cliftonville demonstrated their strength of character with a spirited comeback to earn a North Belfast Derby draw with Crusaders at Seaview this afternoon.

Leading at the break when Colin Coates chose an apt venue to register his first Danske Bank Premiership goal for the Club, the Reds looked doomed to leave empty handed when Billy-Joe Burns, Ben Kennedy and Jordan Forsythe netted to put the hosts in firm control of proceedings.
