Coleraine 1-3 Linfield: Blues come back to win first silverware of the season

In fact, Coleraine went ahead through ex Blue Josh Carson on 33 minutes. Just five minutes later though, Aaron Burns levelled.

That paved the way for a late double from substitute Andrew Mitchell and lively forward Paul Smyth. We'll have more later - for now, have a look at the match as it happened:
