Substitute Dean Ebbe scored within two minutes of coming off the bench to send The New Saints into the Champions League second qualifying round.
Kosova’s Feronikeli scored two late goals to secure a draw in the first leg at Park Hall, leaving the Welsh champions needing to score in Pristina.
Chances were few in a nervy first half at the Stadium Fadil Vokrri.
Ebbe replaced Adrian Cieslewicz on 65 minutes and made an instant impact to head in Simon Spender’s cross.
Saints can now look forward to facing Danish champions FC Copenhagen in the second qualifying round, with the first leg to be played on 23 or 24 July.
Feronikeli drop into the Europa League, where they will come up against either Slovan Bratislava of Slovakia or Montenegro side Sutjeska.
