Stephen Kenny's side played out a scoreless draw with AEK Larnaca at Oriel Park tonight.

That leaves the tie on a knife-edge ahead of next week's second leg.

Elsewhere, Sam Vokes scored a potentially crucial away goal as Burnley salvaged a 1-1 draw away to Aberdeen.

The other Scottish sides in action also both won tonight.

Steven Gerrard's Rangers were 1-0 winners away to Croatian side, Osijek.

While Hibs came from behind to beat Asteras Tripolis 3-2 at Easter Road.
