Sligo had recorded a famous 2-1 win against Rosenborg in Norway last week but found that the visitors were too strong this evening at the Showgrounds, coming away with a 3-1 victory on the night and progressing 4-3 on aggregate.

Michael Duffy gave Derry City a real chance when he opened the scoring against Shacktyor Soligorsk, but the Belarusian side were too strong and their 5-1 win saw them go through 6-1 on aggregate.

Dundalk, at least, came away with a win on the night.

Patrick Hoban and Kurtis Byrne were both on the scoresheet as the Lilywhites beat Hajduk Split 2-1 on the night, but the Irish side lost the tie 3-2 on aggregate.
