Crusaders defender Davy Magowan is set to miss Thursday night’s Europa League clash with IF Brommapojkarna in Stockholm.

Work commitments mean the 30-year-old centre-half won’t travel to Sweden with Stephen Baxter’s squad.

Skipper Colin Coates – who missed the second leg of the second qualifying round victory over FK Ekranas – returns to the panel following a holiday.

“Unfortunately, David can’t make the trip due to business reasons, but we have Colin Coates back to bolster our defensive options,” said Baxter.

“Colin has returned from holiday and is in the travelling party.”
