Bohs hot favourites for first leg win

BOHEMIANS are as short as 2/5 with bookmakers to win Tuesday night's Champions League second qualifying round first leg tie at Dalymount Park.

The layers rate a win by The New Saints a 6/1 shot with the draw at around 3/1.
The management and players left for Ireland this morning to complete their preparations in Dublin, while the Bohs played again on Friday night.
But they were frustrated after taking a first half lead with a Paddy Madden goal at Drogheda. The Airtricity League game at the quaintly-named Hunky Dorys Park was abandoned at half-time as the floodlights failed.
Madden has emerged as a goal-scoring threat in recent weeks as the Bohs have started to return to something like the form that saw them crowned champions again last season.
There have been hints of late that they are finally starting to click and that doesn't bode well for opposition teams.
Manager Pat Fenlon has some injury problems, with Anto Murphy and Steven Gray both battling Achilles injuries, while Aaron Greene is expected to be out for another week with an ankle injury.
But, despite Fenlon's assertions that striker Jason Byrne was likely to miss the ties with TNS, the former Cardiff City man looks certain to play some part over the next 10 days after recovering from injury.
