Nomads stun Kilmarnock in Europa League

Quay pull off one of Welsh football's biggest ever European results

Connah's Quay Nomads stunned SPFL side Kilmarnock to progress to the Second Qualifying Round of the UEFA Europa League.

Second half goals from Ryna Wignall and Callum Morris were enough to overturn the 2-1 first leg deficit and set up a tie in the next round with FK Partizan of Serbia.

The home side had threatened a lot in the first half, hitting the woodwork and forcing Lewis Brass into a number of saves, but Morris also had an opportunity early on, firing wide from close range after good interplay with Michael Wilde.

Nomads did go in front a few minutes after the break, Morris beating his marker on the right before crossing for Wignall to head home from ten yards.

Andy Morrison's side grew in confidence, and went in front with eleven minutes to go, Morris converting from the penalty spot after Stuart Findlay was sent off for bringing down sub Jamie Insall.

Wignall was then also dismissed for a second yellow, but Nomads held on to record one of Welsh football's most famous results in Europe.
