Match Recap

Connah's Quay Nomads embarrassed Kilmarnock 2-0 in Ayrshire to earn a stunning Europa League first qualifying round aggregate victory.
Callum Morris' penalty proved decisive for the Welsh side, who recovered from a 2-1 first leg defeat to earn an unlikely aggregate win and set up a tie with Partizan Belgrade of Serbia.
Ryan Wignall gave the visitors the lead and was later sent off after Kilmarnock's Stuart Findlay had been dismissed for conceding the penalty that Morris converted.
It was a first defeat for new Kilmarnock manager Angelo Alessio and was greeted by jeers by supporters who had celebrated a third-place Scottish Premiership finish last season.

Comments

Angelo Alessio: "Every action was a foul, a yellow or red card. Unbelievable, Connah's Quay gave away a lot of fouls, but this is their strength.""It was very disappointing, In the first half we had three opportunities to score, but in the second half the game was no good.  I'm sorry. I didn't think this game [would go wrong] after the right result last week. At the same time I thought this team had the quality, the strength and the right motivation to come back in this game."

Gary Dicker: "I’m embarrassed. We got a good crowd and we threw away two years of hard work to get a chance to play in Europe to produce that. It was a million miles off it. We’ll take the criticism because we’re out there doing it. We’re big enough to take the credit when it is going well so we’ll accept what comes our way.  We didn’t control the game. We had possession but we gave too many chances away, we were too open. We got away with it last week and it covered up the cracks when we won 2-1. It is so hard to take and we’ve only ourselves to blame. Hard work is what got us here. The minute we think we are better than that then we are in trouble. We got where we were by doing the ugly things well and being hard to beat. I can’t even explain that because it’s the most embarrassing game I’ve ever been involved in.  I can only apologise to the fans because they turned up in their numbers and they expect better and that’s not good enough."
