St Patrick's denied at the death

St Patrick's were denied a shock Champions League victory over Legia Warsaw after conceding a stoppage-time equaliser in the first leg of their Champions League second qualifying round in Poland.

The League of Ireland champions were on course to shock Henning Berg's side, who have won back-to-back domestic titles and featured in last season's Europa League group stage, when Christy Fagan converted Ian Bermingham's left-wing cross in the 38th minute.

Legia hit the crossbar before the break and forced Brendan Clarke into a couple of crucial saves but looked to be heading for defeat until Miroslav Radovic pounced in added time to secure a 1-1 draw.

The second leg at Dublin's Tallaght Stadium takes place next Wednesday.
