MISSED chances proved costly for Coleraine as they crashed out of Europe last week, beaten 3-1 on aggregate by Serbian outfit FX Spartak Subotica in the first qualifying round of the Europa League.
The Bannsiders had high hopes going into Thursday's second leg at the Showgrounds after securing a 1-1 draw away in Serbia but despite dominating in front of a big crowd at Ballycastle Road they went down to a 2-0 defeat.
Oran Kearney's men created plenty of chances but found visiting goalkeeper Nikloa Peric in inspired form as he repelled everything the home side threw at him.
However, there were enough positives to suggest that Coleraine could enjoy another successful Irish League season which gets underway on Saturday August 3.
