TNS will take on Danish giants Copenhagen in the second qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League next week.

A solitary Dean Ebbe goal was enough for the Oswestry side to prevail 3-2 aggregate winners over FK Feronikeli in Kosovo on Tuesday night.

Victory boosted Wales’ co-efficient in the UEFA rankings after Europa League representatives Barry Town United and Cardiff Metropolitan fell at the first hurdle earlier in the month.

TNS will now host the Danish champions on Tuesday, July 23 before travelling to Scandinavia for the second leg a week later having already secured a bumper £832,000 pay day for their progress.

Saints manager Scott Ruscoe said: “It was definitely exciting towards the end.

“Although we didn’t create lots and lots of chances, the one that mattered Dean Ebbe certainly put it away well.

“I did look at the clock and thought we were going to concede a late equaliser again but the lads were resolute and willed each other on despite a few tired legs out there.”

Ruscoe conceded the Welsh champions would be underdogs against Copenhagen who beat Newtown 5-1 on aggregate in the second qualifying round of the Europa League in 2015.

“Copenhagen will be tough,” said Ruscoe. “They are a top side, played in Champions League group stages, have lots of experience and they play good football.”
