Clinical TNS set up Anderlecht date

The New Saints FC 4-0 Bohemian FC (agg: 4-1)
The Welsh champions overturned a first-leg deficit to ease through and book a third qualifying round tie against RSC Anderlecht.

The New Saints FC overturned a 1-0 first-leg deficit to secure a comfortable 4-1 aggregate victory against Bohemian FC and book a UEFA Champions League third qualifying round meeting with RSC Anderlecht.

Bohemians had the edge at kick-off thanks to Killian Brennan's header in Dublin last week, but they found themselves 3-1 down overall within 20 minutes of the return. Craig Jones, Matthew Williams and Chris Sharp did the damage and Williams added a second 17 minutes from time to rubber-stamp a comprehensive comeback.

It all started with six minutes on the clock when Jones raced onto a long clearance and flicked the ball over Barry Murphy. Brennan soon went close to restoring parity on the night but Williams gave Michael Davies' side the aggregate lead on 14 minutes with a consummate finish.

Jones turned provider six minutes later, racing to the byline and cutting back for Sharp to clip past Murphy and give the hosts their third. Paul Keegan was denied by both the woodwork and TNS goalkeeper Paul Harrison as Bohemians piled on the pressure after the break, but Williams put the result beyond doubt with an instinctive finish after a Steve Evans header had been parried.
