Omagh Town crashed out of the Inter-Toto Cup as Shakhtior Soligorsk cruised to a comfortable win.

Omagh manager Roy McCreadie had been optimistic that the Irish League representatives could overturn a 1-0 first leg deficit against the Belarussians.

But the County Tyrone outfit were struggling after conceding two goals in the opening 10 minutes at the Brandywell, home of Derry City.

Andrei Liavonchyk fired high past Gavin Cullen and seven minutes later Siarhei Nikifarenka stuck the ball in an empty net following a piece of pure magic from the excellent Raman Trapachkin.

The impressive Tsimafei Kalachou, who had been the star of the show in Minsk a week ago, swept in number three on 21 minutes.

Anatoli Tsikhanchyk, the scorer of the only goal in the first leg, got in on the act again from Kalachou's neat touch and Omagh were reeling, 5-0 behind on aggregate.

Ivan Sproule fired a little hope in the home side's bellies with a fine individual effort just before the break.

But the introduction of Aliaksandr Novik for the second half proved a masterstroke by visiting head coach Yuri Vergeychik.

The substitute tucked away number five and he also completed the scoring with a header after marauding full-back Andrei Siarohin stooped to head the sixth.

Omagh boss Roy McCreadie admitted his side were out of their depth.

"Last week's five-day trip to Belarus took its toll but we did not play as well or defend as well as we did out there," said McCreadie."
