Comeback joy for Sartid

FK Sartid 2-0 Bangor City FC (Agg: 2-1) Yugoslavian side recover from first leg.

FK Sartid 2-0 Bangor City FC (Sartid win 2-1 on aggregate)
Yugoslavia's FK Sartid bounced back from a first-leg deficit to win their UEFA Cup qualifying round tie against League of Wales side Bangor City FC.

Early goal
Bangor, a goal ahead from their home leg, had high hopes of making the first round, but found themselves on the back foot from the start. And it took just 14 minutes for Sartid to level the tie, Milorad Zecevic heading in a left-wing cross seconds after the home team had a penalty appeal denied.

Second-half clincher
The visitors were able to manage few chances against a well-organised Sartid defence, and Nenad Mirosavljevic put the hosts ahead on aggregate on 58 minutes after finishing a fine solo run with a low ten-metre shot past Bangor goalkeeper Philip Priestley.

Ten men hold on
Sartid had to hold on in the last 29 minutes after Zeljko Damjanovic was sent off for a professional foul just outside the penalty area, but the home team saw off Bangor's attempts to ensure progress.
