  2. Big relief - Findlay

    FT: Connah's Quay Nomads 1-2 Kilmarnock

    Kilmarnock centre-half Stuart Findlay is delighted with his winning goal.

    "It was a big relief because it was a really difficult game for us," he says.

    "They took their first chance and it would have been easy for us to crumble.

    "Luckily I got my head to the one at the end and it is great to take a lead into next week."

  3. Tough to take - Morrison

    FT: Connah's Quay 1-2 Kilmarnock

    Connah's Quay manager Andy Morrison is left frustrated but praises his players.

    "We shoot ourselves in the foot with a couple of crazy decisions," he tells BBC Scotland.

    "I asked the lads to be courageous, but there are other sides when you show a composed head.

    "It is three and a half years since we have conceded from a corner, but when you have tired minds, you don't spot the dangers.

    "It is a tough one to take and maybe tomorrow I will look back in the courage of the boys."

  4. Away goal danger for Aberdeen

  8. Reminder you are never there - McInnes

    FT: Aberdeen 2-1 RoPS

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes is encouraged by his side's performance but admits his side still "have work to do" to go through to the next round.

    "I want to applaud my players for the level of performance at this stage of the season," he tells BBC Scotland.

    "The supporters got a wee bit flavour of how we want to be this season and we passed up a barrowload of chances.

    "To produce that level against a team well into their season was really encouraging.

    "The goal we lose is a reminder that you are never there."

  9. Game is totally open - Tuutti

    FT: Aberdeen 2-1 RoPS

    RoPS coach Pasi Tuutti says he has "mixed" feelings about the game after what he claims was a tiring "three-day" journey from Lapland.

    "The better team was Aberdeen today, but our goalkeeeper was great," he tells BBC Scotland.

    "Our sub, Tommi Jantti, came on for his first big game and took his chance.

    "This game is totally open next week. The goal gives a little bit more energy for us.

    "We are low-budget compared to Aberdeen and we have to improve our defending in the next game, but I think we are better at home."

  11. Four in a row

    FT: Aberdeen 2-1 RoPS

    That makes it four wins out of four for Scottish teams in European competition this week.

    With away victories, Celtic, Rangers and now Kilmarnock are strong favourites to progress.

    Aberdeen looked a class above RoPS at times tonight, but Derek McInnes' side still have their work cut out to complete the tie.

  12. Tie back in balance

    Quote Message: Aberdeen were miles ahead of them, but at 2-1, they are going to have to play well when they go over there and it will be nervous. That team can pass the ball
  13. FULL-TIME

    Aberdeen 2-1 RoPS

    That stoppage-time goal from Tommi Jantti has thrown this tie back in the melting pot.

    Aberdeen looked to be heading to Finland with a comfortable lead thanks to a fine first-half finish from Niall McGinn and Sam Cosgrove's close-range finish shortly after the break.

    They will hope they don't regret missing chances to extend their advantage when the travel for the second leg.

    If it wasn't for a time-defying performance from 37-year-old former Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Ross County, Kilmarnock and Hibs goalkeeper Antonio Reguero, the tie would have been over.

    Instead, Jantti's late strike could prove to be a vital goal for visitors who have now gone four games without a victory.

  14. GOAL Aberdeen 2-1 RoPS

    Tommi Jantti

  17. Post update

    Aberdeen 2-0 RoPS

    Jon Gallagher wins possession and looks to cap his fine debut with a goal.

    The on-loan Atlanta United midfielder is maybe a bit greedy with team-mates available but fires over as he goes for glory.

  18. Wilson for McGinn

    Aberdeen 2-0 RoPS

    James Wilson, the striker who has signed a two-year contract after being released by Manchester United after last season's loan at Pittodrie, takes his bow as he replaces Niall McGinn.

  19. 'Satisfactory for Dons'

    Aberdeen 2-0 RoPS

    Quote Message: RoPS haven't really laid a glove on Aberdeen. I'm sure Derek McInnes would like a third or fourth, but I'm sure he will be satisfied with 2-0 from Willie Miller Former Aberdeen manager

    It's Connor McLennan's turn to test the RoPS goalkeeper, but Antonio Reguero is again up to the challenge. Superb show by the veteran Spaniard.
