AIRBUS director of football Andy Preece says his side have all to play for in the second leg of their Europa League first qualifying round tie against FK Haugesund.

The Wingmakers were held to a 1-1 draw by the Norwegians in the first leg at Bangor's Nantporth but Preece is confident his players can overcome Haugesund's away goal advantage.

"We still think we've got a good chance," Preece said.

Jordan Johnson scored to give Airbus the lead in the first leg before Daniel Bamberg levelled for Haugesund with an excellent 20-yard strike.

"It was a great performance by us to make sure we're still in the tie. We know it's going to be really tough," Preece added.

"But we caused them enough problems to know that we've got a chance to score.

"We believe we can get through. We know it's going to be an unbelievable effort that we are going to have to put in.

"But the chance is there and the big thing for us is that we're still in the tie.

"But I think it's difficult for all the Welsh teams to play in Europe when you're playing against teams that are half way through their season."

After a short one and a quarter hour charter flight from Hawarden to Haugesund, the management and players settled in to their excellent surroundings by the harbour front before training at the Haugesund Stadium on Wednesday night.

Jay Owen, Ryan Wignall and Ashley Williams are injury doubts for the Wingmakers.

Bosnia-Hercegovina's FK Sarajevo await the winners in the second qualifying round.
