Michael drives B36 Wilde

Michael Wilde impressed with a hat-trick as The New Saints progressed to the Champions League second qualifying round following a 4-1 (6-2 aggregate) victory over B36 in Oswestry.

Wilde struck twice in the first half and completed his treble just after the break before Matthew Williams made it four on the night, while captain Lukasz Cieslewicz pulled one back for the Faroe Islands outfit at the death but it was too little too late.

TNS now face a second qualifying first-leg clash against Videoton next week as they look to seal their progress to the Champions League proper.

Northern Ireland's Crusaders advanced on away goals after their 1-1 result against Levadia of Estonia at Le Coq Arena on Tuesday, with Michael Carvill's early opener making the difference despite Siim Luts' equaliser midway through the first half.

Elsewhere, there was success for Gibraltar's Lincoln, who saw off Santa Coloma 2-1, while Armenian side Pyunik made it through after a 2-1 (4-2 aggregate) win over Folgore.
