Crusaders midfielder Ryan McCann is set to miss the rest of the season after suffering a broken leg in Saturday's Co-op Cup win over Warrenpoint Town.

McCann sustained a double fracture in a slide tackle during the 5-3 success over the junior side.

"Ryan's leg is in full plaster-cast - I'm totally devastated for him," said Crues manager Stephen Baxter.

"It's just one of those things that happen in football. It would be fair to say Ryan's season is as good as over."

"He went in for a slide tackle - there was no malice intended whatsoever," Baxter told the News Letter.
