ANDY MORRISON hailed a "great day for Welsh football" after Connah's Quay Nomads stunned Scottish Championship outfit Falkirk.

Nomads were making their second foray into the competition and a goal from Michael Wilde a minute into the second-half was enough to secure a first ever win in Scotland for the Flintshire outfit.

With The New Saints beaten 4-2 on penalties by League Two side Queen's Park, Nomads are now the Welsh Premier League's only representatives in tomorrow's third round draw.

Nomads boss Morrison was proud of his team for beating Falkirk on home soil, saying: "It's fantastic for the league that our team are coming away (and winning) - not at home, we've been unfortunate with two away ties against Scottish Championship teams and last year we took a Scottish Championship team to a 119 minutes until they got the winner.

"It's a great day for Welsh football because we've beaten a team that have four or five times our budget and we've done a job on them.

"If we get it right in the first-half and we are clinical we are 2-0 up at half time. We've had more possession, we've kept the ball."

That led Morrison on to questioning those that feel football can only be played one way - Pep Guardiola's teams often the benchmark - insisting results are of the greatest importance.

He continued: "I continually here people talking about playing football the 'right way', I've a way of playing football that wins games of football.

"I've been fortunate to play for (Kenny) Dalglish, (Kevin) Keegan, (Sam) Allardyce and Joe Royle. I've never heard any of those managers talking about playing football the right way - it just seems to be a Welsh thing.

"I'm very, very pleased because we've shown that, against a team when you are underdogs, like we were against Stabaek and Helsinki, the way we do things we can win games of football.

"It sends a message out as well that whoever we play against we are going to give a great account of ourselves.

"I went and watched them last week and I thought we boxed it off outstandingly well.

"We changed things on 65 minutes and went to a slightly different system, but John Danby has not had a save to make and we should have been 2-0 up with little areas we've exploited after working on them and seeing them last week."

The win for Nomads came despite Morrison making six changes to the XI that were beaten 2-0 by Barry Town United last weekend.

Morrison said: "That's the philosophy of our football club.

"Everybody knows what's expected and everybody knows the detail they need to go to not to concede a goal, so the personnel can change.

"Most importantly of all, we were solid right throughout the game. Yes, they are going to chuck the kitchen sink at you in the last 10 minutes and you've got to try and find a way of keeping them as far away from your 18-yard line as possible and be brave, which I thought the lads were.

"Anything other than a victory would have been an injustice on the performance, preparation and everything about the game."

There was no shortage of drama as The New Saints bowed out at the hands of Queen's Park.

Jordan Hart's own goal looked like handing Saints a victory, but Smart Osadolor and Lewis Hawke struck a minute either side of the 90 to stun Scott Ruscoe's men, who were down to 10-men after the dismissal of Jon Routledge.

But Saints took the game to penalties as Joash Nembhard fired a 95th minute leveller to make it 2-2 at the end of normal time.

Jamie Mullan and Ryan Brobbel missed Saints first two penalties and Queen's Park kept their cool to progress.

Sutton United are through after Tommy Wright handed his side a 1-0 win at Airdie, but fellow National League side Boreham Wood are out after losing 6-5 on penalties to Dunfermline after the game had finished goalless.
