Crusaders' IRN-BRU Cup adventure is over after Stephen Baxter's side were sunk by an injury time goal at Seaview.

Scottish League One side Livingston progressed to the quarter-finals after a 2-1 victory sealed when Scott Pittman slotted in the late winner.

Jordan Owens struck an impressive equaliser for the Crues after Josh Mullin broke the deadlock in the second half, however the Scottish side killed off the home side's resistance at the death.

Linfield will take on Queen of the South at Palmerston Park on Sunday (1pm).
