Sligo fail to break Molde
SLIGO Rovers bowed out of the Champions League last night following a 2-0 defeat to Norwegian champions Molde in the Aker Stadoin.
Trailing 1-0 from the first leg, Ian Barclough's side got the night off to a terrible start.
With just five minutes played, Molde took the lead with a goal from Martin Linnes. However, the task remained the same for the visitors who still needed to score two goals away from home.
David Cawley and Kieran Djilali had Sligo's best chances in the first-half while the goalscorer from the first leg, Daniel Chima Chukwu, spurned a great chance to double his side's advantage.
Molde's second goal arrived on 77 minutes when the outstanding Chukwu set up substitute Alion Coly who smashed his shot low into the bottom corner to give Ole Gunner Solskjaer's side a 3-0 aggregate win.
