Sartid pay the penalty

FK Sartid 0-1 Ipswich Town FC (Agg: 1-2) Marcus Bent's spot-kick sends the English club through.

Marcus Bent's penalty proved sufficient to see off FK Sartid and send Ipswich Town FC into the second round of the UEFA Cup.

Early goal
The visitors, who play in the English first division after their relegation from the Premiership last season, took the lead after just nine minutes and should have won by a greater margin. In front of a near full house of 16,500, Ipswich proved more than a match for their Yugoslavian hosts who earned a 1-1 draw at Portman Road in the first leg.

Vaskovic close
The home side could have taken the lead in the fourth minute when Sartid captain Goran Bogdanovic's trickery in the area set up Boris Vaskovic, and his shot found its way through a crowd of bodies, only to hit the post.

Kisic foul
However, Ipswich soon got their decisive goal. Finidi George delivered a deep cross from the right flank which led to a shove on Bent in the area by Slavoljub Kisic, prompting Spanish referee Luis Medina to point to the spot. Bent stepped up to take the penalty himself and stroked it powerfully past goalkeeper Dragan Zilic.

Spectacular effort
Ipswich might have taken an even firmer grasp on the tie in the 16th minute when Pablo Counago dug out a left-wing centre which Bent met with a spectacular effort. Once again Zilic was left helpless but the ball thudded back into play off the upright and Sartid cleared.

Excellent chances
Sartid then had some excellent chances of their own and dominated in terms of territory and possession after the break but could not find a way through. Their best chance came ten minutes from time, but Milorad Zecevic's tame effort failed to trouble goalkeeper Andy Marshall.
