Sligo Rovers ensured a great summer in Europe for League of Ireland clubs continued with a historic 2-1 away win over Rosenberg in the Europa League second qualifying round.

Following on from St Pat’s well-earned 1-1 draw away to Legia Warsaw last night, John Coleman’s men showed no fear against the Norwegian champions and goals from Alan Keane and Danny North gave them a precious 2-1 advantage to take home to the second leg.

Keane opened the scoring when he blasted home at the second time of asking after his initial attempt was saved by Rosenberg keeper Alexander Hansen.

North was on hand to double their lead 20 minutes from time when he finished from a John Russell  cross before Mikkel Diskerud pulled one back for the hime team.

The return leg takes place in Sligo next Thursday.
