MARK ROBERTS wants Kilmarnock to hit Connah's Quay Nomads for 10 in the Europa League first qualifying round.

Nomads were paired with Scottish Premiership outfit Kilmarnock in the European competition on Tuesday, the winners of the tie due to play Partizan Belgrade.

Queen's Park boss Roberts came up against Nomads in the Scottish Challenge Cup last season, the Welsh side winning 2-1.

A war of words broke out following the clash with Nomads, Spiders goalkeeper Jordan Hart, who was named man of the match, declaring: "I don't even know what we just took part in - it wasn't football."

Nomads boss Andy Morrison was not prepared to let Hart's sour grapes go, reflecting: “We beat a big bunch of girls at Queen’s Park. I was delighted with that as they showed us no respect.

“Funnily enough they lost a lot of games after playing us as they were still crying like babies.”

And Roberts has reignited the feud, insisting that he hopes Kilmarnock crush Nomads over two legs next month.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Roberts said: “Our keeper had a go at them after we played them and called their style of play a disgrace and that it wasn’t the way football should be played.

“Their manager Andy Morrison was disrespectful to Queen's Park and my players after the game and that was probably on the back of our keeper being disrespectful to them and I get that.

"I hope Kilmarnock take ten off them. It will probably be six but I’d like ten. The one thing I can guarantee is that Kilmarnock will have too much for them.

“Kilmarnock will beat Connah’s Quay, no problem.”

Roberts confirmed that he is no fan of Nomads' playing style, but knows that they are a tough team to tackle.

He continued: “I don’t like the style of the Welsh side but it works for them.

“The bottom line though is that they won the game against us and I actually don’t mind how teams play.

“If they want to go long ball, which Connah do, then they are playing to their strengths.

“It makes them a difficult, difficult team to play against.

“Kilmarnock will find this a different challenge as they won’t meet many teams who play the way Connah do.

“This is a side which takes centre and passes straight back to the goalie who kicks it forward as far as he can and they all just pile in.

“They get it forward as quickly as possible and then the ball goes wide to the two wingers who are decent players and can cause any team problems.”

Rangers will face a potential rematch with Progres Niederkorn if they both make it through to the second qualifying round.

Gers were knocked out of the competition by the Luxembourg minnows two years ago.

Wolves enter the competition at the second qualifying round and will play Crusaders or B36 Torshavn, while Aberdeen meet Fola Esch or Chikhura Sachkhere if they beat RoPS Rovaniemi.

If TNS exit the Champions League at the first hurdle, they will meet Slovan Bratislava or Sutjeska in the second qualifying round.
