Scottish minnows Queen of the South saw their UEFA Cup campaign come to an end on Tuesday in Denmark as they bowed out to FC Nordsjaelland in their second qualifying round, going down 2-1 on the night to lose 4-2 on aggregate.

After the 2-1 home reverse the odds were against Queens pulling off the win but Bob Harris levelled the encounter with a piledriver of a freekick after just two minutes to give Gordon Chisholm's men some hope against rivals coached by former Celtic star Morten Wieghorst.

But they failed to capitalise on that as Paul Burns and then Harris again allowed half chances to slip away at the Faram Park stadium.

Martin Bernburg then missed for the Danes from inside the six-yard box but he had the last laugh with a pair of close-range strikes in the final five minutes after Jonathan Richter had come close midway through the second period with a drive which shaved Cammy Bell's post.
