Both teams fielded what would be classed as almost second string elevens although with our strength in depth it was still a very strong Linfield team that took to the pitch at Seaview. It was a typical end of season fare being served up although there was plenty of opportunities at both ends to open the scoring. We gifted the Crues the lead early in the second half and it wasn't until Mark McAllister came on that we started to control the game and it was from an excellent run and lay off from Mark that we got the equaliser. Was very disappointed for young Aaron Burns who looked as though he pulled his hamstring (again) and looks certain to miss the Cup Final, with all the rumors going round it could well be his last game in a Linfield shirt.
Goal scorer: Daryl Fordyce.
