THE New Saints' director of football Craig Harrison is confident his side will complete the job against Tre Penne in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Welsh Premier champions scraped a narrow victory in the first leg at Park Hall a week ago, but Harrison says "I expect us to score more goals than they do, home or away.

"We must have had 10 very good chances. On a different day we would have scored five goals.

"That final third we weren't quite as sharp as what we could have been, whether that's because it's early on in the season.

"But we'll certainly be a lot better in that department on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Tre Penne coach Marco Protti says his side are capable of reaching the second qualifying round after scoring an away goal in the 2-1 first leg defeat.

"We must believe in ourselves and believe that we can do it," he said.

"It will be a tough task for us but scoring an away goal last week is very important and we are hopeful we can score another goal tomorrow night.

The lowest-ranked side in the competition, Tre Penne have won just one leg of a European tie from the nine they have featured in to date, beating Shirak of Armenia 1-0 at home in the Champions League in 2013.

In all they have leaked 36 goals and scored five in European contests.

The winners will face Apoel Nicosia of Cyprus in the second qualifying round.
