Bohs can finish job -- Fenlon

BOHEMIANS boss Pat Fenlon believes his players have what it takes to finish off their European task and knock Welsh side TNS out of the Champions League in Wales next week.

Bohs secured a 1-0 win at home to TNS last night, Killian Brennan's 66th minute header the difference between the teams on a night when top scorer Paddy Madden missed half a dozen chances, mainly due to some excellent goalkeeping from Paul Harrison.

"The tie isn't over yet but I am confident we can finish it off," Fenlon said.

"One thing we have in the squad is experience, Owen Heary was immense last night, he led the team really well, and Jason Byrne did well when he came off the bench.

"It's not a situation I am used to in Europe, going away for the second leg with a good win from the home leg. Often in Europe we had the away leg first and then finished off the job at home, or tried to, so it's a new experience for me.

"I think the players know what to do now. They are a good bunch of players who work very hard and listen to what they are told. Now we have a game in Wales next week and we will go there to win the tie," added the Bohs boss, who will have an eye on UEFA HQ in Switzerland on Friday morning for the draw for the third round of the competition, where Bohs could be paired with clubs like Celtic or Ajax.
