CONNAH’S QUAY NOMADS recorded arguably the greatest win in the club’s - and Welsh Premier League - history as they stunned Kilmarnock.

Trailing 2-1 from the first-leg in Rhyl, Nomads knew they needed to produce a perfect performance at Rugby Park last night to progress to the second qualifying round.

And aside from Ryan Wignall’s red card it was a night to savour as the winger headed his side in-front five minutes after the break before getting his marching orders.

With 11 minutes remaining Andy Morrison’s men got their noses in-front on aggregate as Callum Morris converted from the spot.

Stuart Findlay, who scored in stoppage time at Belle Vue last week, turned from hero to villain as he conceded the penalty and got himself sent-off in the process.

Midfielder Morris is no stranger to scoring in Europe having netted as Nomads beat Stabaek 1-0 on aggregate three years ago, and the 26-year-old became the hero once more.

Nomads will now lock horns with Partizan Belgrade in the second qualifying round next week.

Goalkeeper Lewis Brass, who kept an all-important clean sheet to help Nomads progress, tweeted his delight at the 2-0 away win.

He wrote: “Baby we did it!! what an amazing comeback against a superior opposition @KilmarnockFC into the second round of the Europa league up the @the_nomads.”

Boss Morrison was delighted with a memorable night that he revealed he had "dreamed about".

"It's a fantastic result," said Morrison. "Our preparation was about getting to 0-0 at half time and then exposing ourselves a tough in the second-half.

"The game was difficult. Unlike last week when the referee was very fair and let things go, I thought we were punished harshly for fouls

"I thought they went to ground too easily and too often, but we were men and we stood up.

"It's going to take time to sink in, but for me and my staff it's a fantastic achievement, and I've said it so many times that we don't get the credit we deserve.

"I'm incredibly proud. The boys are out on their feet and the realism of it is that the boys will be back at 5am because five of them have work in the morning.

"Sometimes the hand of fate is with you, last week it wasn't with the goal in the last minute, which I suffered for many days from until we picked myself up.

"We've done something magical and the Welsh Premier League should be so proud.

"The Welsh Premier League have come to a Scottish Premiership team and beaten then 2-0.

"It's testament to the strength and improvement in our league and also the character of my team, because what they've done tonight is beyond belief.

"I'm still pinching myself at this moment in time."
