Blues and Crues look to double up
Linfield and Crusaders yesterday booked their places in the JJB Sports Irish Cup Final — when both will hope to wrap up a famous double.
The sides are already locked in a battle for the Carling Premiership title and will also go head-to-head for the Cup on May 7 after coming through their respective semi-final encounters this weekend.
Linfield defeated Glentoran 2-0 at Windsor thanks to goals from Jamie Tomelty and Peter Thompson, while the Crues stormed from behind to overcome the challenge of Portadown with a 3-1 victory at Mourneview Park.
