Brennan heads winner for Bohs

Bohemians 1 TNS 0

A second-half Killian Brennan header gave Bohemians a 1-0 lead to bring to Wales next week for the second leg of this Champions league qualifying tie.

TNS were much the better side for the duration of the first-half.

Ruaidhri Higgins blasted over the visitor’s bar from a corner as Bohs started well.

TNS then scared the life out of the home side with Colin Sharp firing narrowly wide before Craig Jones shot just over the bar.

Paddy Madden then missed a super chance for Bohs six minutes before the interval when he forced a save from Paul Harrison after good work by Brennan and strike partner Rafael Cretaro.

Bohs were better after the break and Madden shot wide on the hour mark.

The decisive goal arrived on 66 minutes when winger Brennan met Madden’s cross to head home.

Mark Quigley came close to easing Bohs burden ahead of the second leg, but his 82nd minute shot came back off the bar.
