David McAllister’s injury-time strike gave Shamrock Rovers hope after they lost 3-2 to Mlada Boleslav in the first leg of their Europa League qualifying second-round tie on Thursday night.

Golgol Mebrahtu’s double and Jan Chramosta’s late strike put the visitors in control, despite Graham Burke equalising three minutes after half-time.

But McAllister struck in the second minute of stoppage time to pull Rovers back into the tie.

Elsewhere on Thursday, Cork also lost 1-0 to AEK Larnaka after Joan Truyols’ second-half goal saw off the Irish side.

Left-back Truyols drilled into the corner with 20 minutes left at Turner’s Cross and the hosts could not find a way back.
