What channel is Sligo Rovers v Motherwell on? Conference League match info, kick-off time, TV details, team news

Motherwell are in Ireland as they look to overturn a 1-0 first-leg loss to Sligo Rovers in the Europa Conference League second round qualifying tie.

Graham Alexander’s men were booed off at Fir Park last week in what was a hugely disappointing result for the Steelmen and Scottish football.

Former Hearts and Dunfermline Athletic striker Aidan Keena was the goal scorer, taking advantage of Bevis Mugabi’s wayward header.

Despite that, Motherwell go into the second-leg as favourites at The Showgrounds. The winner of the time will face Sparta Prague or Viking.

Last meeting

You only have to go back to the first-leg last week for the last time the sides met. Sligo got in front and Motherwell struggled to respond despite having a lot of the ball.

Team news

Nathan McGinley and Juhani Ojala were missing from the first leg.

Does the game go to extra-time?

If Motherwell win by one goal it will go to extra-time. It doesn't have to be 1-0 as UEFA no longer operates the away goals rule.

What Graham Alexander has said:

"There's at least another 90 minutes to go so there was no need to panic. We still have enough in our team and enough time to win the tie."

"My encouragement is from my team and my players. It's not about how the opposition did in the previous round or what happened ten years ago or three years ago or last year, it's about now. Every team in football is capable of good and poor results and performances."

Anything else?

Motherwell will be backed by a sold out away crowd.

Meanwhile, while the Steelmen have played just two friendlies and one competitive match, Sligo are 23 games into the League of Ireland Premier Division. They sit fifth in the table.
