Stuart Findlay of Kilmarnock celebrates after scoring a last-gasp header

Stuart Findlay headed a last-gasp winner as Kilmarnock snatched a 2-1 victory in the Europa League first qualifying round first leg against Connah’s Quay in Angelo Alessio’s first match as manager.

The Scottish side had been heading for a shock defeat in the first leg of their Europa League first qualifying round tie at Rhyl’s Belle Vue stadium after a Greg Taylor own goal in the 75th minute.

But Killie, backed by the majority in the 3,000-capacity stadium, rallied and levelled with an Eamonn Brophy penalty eight minutes from time.
