Cork City have on foot in the second qualifying round of the Europa League after goals in each half from Garry Buckley and Steven Beattie earned a 2-0 away victory over Levadia Tallinn.

 

City had the better of the first half with Sean Maguire in particular causing the Levadia central defenders no end of problems.

 

It was little surprise, then, when Cameroonian defender Luc Manga got his marching orders for a second yellow card after hacking down Maguire on the edge of the area.

 

It was to prove a doubly costly sequence of play for the home side as, from the resulting free kick, Greg Bolger teed up Buckley to drive the ball low and through the wall to make it 1-0 at the break.

 

 

However City struggled to make their numerical superiority count in the second half and required Mark McNulty to tip the ball acrobatically off the crossbar to deny Nikita Andreyev an equaliser.

 

 

And substitute Steven Beattie took advantage of some tired defending late on as he sent an unstoppable shot in off the top of the post to seal a two-goal victory for the Leesiders.

 

 

Should City hold at Turner's Cross next week, they will likely face AEK Larnaca of Cyprus after they ran out comprehensive 5-0 winners over Gibraltar's Lincoln Red Imps tonight.
