Baxter pride as Crues test Rosenborg

Crusaders manager Stephen Bexter is "extremely proud" of his players as they take the lead against Rosenborg in the Europa League qualifier first leg at Seaview before going down to a 2-1 defeat.

"This was part-time footballers up against very serious professional footballers. We gave them a good game tonight," said Baxter.

Jordan Owens put the Crues ahead and then missed a chance to extend the Northern Irish side's lead before John Chibuke and Jonas Svensson hit Rosenborg goals.
