Skipper Colin Coates hit a goal of the season contender to help Crusaders pocket three Danske Premiership points at Seaview.

The 28 year old led by example, blasting home a first half beauty to condemn Glentoran to yet another defeat at the Shore Road venue -- they had won only once in the previous 10 visits.

But they should have won by a great margin, with little Paul Heatley having a disappointing day in front of goal.
