Angry fans make their feelings known

The Jack Doherty stand sits virtually deserted with the game still going on.

248 travelling Crusaders fans in the far corner and behind the bets remained to acknowledge their side.

For those from the home support – total crowd was 2,357 –  that did remain until the final whistle, it was a different scenario.

Fans booed and hurled abuse as their frustrations following Saturday’s 4-0 defeats by Crusaders boiled over.

Many supporters voted with their feet and left long before the third and fourth goals went in.

It was a sad end to another disappointing day for the Bannsiders following their 5-0 midweek reverse against Cliftonville.

It’s been a long time since such unhappy scenes has been witnessed at the Showgrounds.

Coleraine get a quick chance to make amends when they host Bangor in the BetMcLean Cup on Tuesday night.

This competition has been relatively kind to Oran Kearney’s side in recent years There can be no slip up’s in this one!
