Whyte's late strike sees Crusaders beat Dundee United in Scottish Challenge Cup quarter-final

Crusaders have beaten Dundee United in the quarter final of the Scottish Challenge Cup.

The holders were knocked out of the cup with a 2-1 victory at Tannadice.

The match got off to a late start after Crusaders' flight was delayed. It looked like that might haunt the visitors when they fell behind at the start of the second half but Davis Cushley levelled the scores on 70 minutes.

And it was an added-time strike from Gavin Whyte that ensured Crusaders made it to the semi-finals in front of a crowd of 2,048.

Meanwhile, Dumbarton beat Raith Rovers 2-0 to reach the semi-finals. Inverness play Falkirk and TNS face Queen of the South in the other quarter-finals.

In the Danske Bank Premiership, there were wins for Cliftonville and Warrenpoint Town.
