League Cup: Linfield, Crusaders and Ballymena United progress

Linfield cruise into the third round of the League Cup, Crusaders battle to victory and Ballymena United win after extra-time.

The Blues saw off Glebe Rangers 5-0 at Windsor Park, while the Crues got the better of Knockbreda 3-1 after surviving a scare when the Championship One side equalised.

Ballymena United trailed 1-0 to Moyola Park at Mill Meadow, but David Cushley brought the Sky Blues level, before three goals in extra-time saw Glenn Ferguson's men through to round three.
