Poland or Montenegro would be next for TNS

IF The New Saints can prevail in Sweden next Wednesday, their Champions League third qualifying round opponents will be unseeded clubs from either Montenegro or Poland.

TNS drew 0-0 at home to Helsingborgs IF earlier this week to leave their tie intriguingly poised and, in the draw made at Uefa headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland today, the winners will face FK Buducnost of Montenegro or WKS Slask Wroclaw of Poland.

The Montenegrans first appeared in Europe's top club competition in 2008 and lost on aggregate to Tampere United of Finland.

They were also defeated at the first hurdle of the Europa League a year ago by Albanian outfit Flamurtari Vlore.

The Poles are appearing in the Champions League for the first time and hold a 2-0 lead from the first leg.
