ANDY MORRISON reckons you can't look further than Connah's Quay Nomads if you want a team to win in Scotland.

Nomads secured a place in tomorrow's fourth round draw courtesy of a 1-0 win over Cove Rangers, and while a home tie is Morrison's preference, he knows his side are more than capable of winning north of the border if necessary.

"If a football team is going to go to Scotland and win, like we have against Falkirk, Queen's Park and Kilmarnock, Connah's Quay will be that team," said boss Morrison.

"It isn't easy to go to Scotland and win a game a football. I think TNS have shown that by getting beaten by Stenhousemuir, who are down the bottom of the Scottish League Two.

"We've gone and beaten the top team in that league and I will back us against anyone.

"It's been a great journey in this competition and we want to carry on as far as we can.

"A home draw is perfect, but we are in the hat."

Cove headed to the Deeside Stadium having won four and drawn the other one of their five league outings, scoring 17 times in the process.

But Nomads stood up to what the visitors had to offer in attack, before Michael Bakare settled the tie with a low free-kick in the final quarter of an hour.

Morrison was understandably delighted with the manner of the victory.

"It's back-to-back clean sheets and back-to-back 1-0 wins, which sounds like Connah's Quay," said Morrison, who continued: "I was very respectful of them before the game, I've been to watch them and know they are a very good outfit.

"They are buoyant, confident and at the top of their game and scoring goals for fun.

"But I'd like to think that myself and my coaches have got our tactics right by stifling a very good team.

"Our keeper has not made a save - they've hit the post - but he's not made a save in 90 minutes and that's testament to our organisation and game plan.

"I always think we are going to get a chance, and we got a great one after two minutes through a header from George Horan, who will be disappointed with the standards he sets not to score that."

With the game goalless, Jamie Insall and Ryan Wignall replaced Nathan Woolfe and Jay Owen, a change which Morrison felt swung the contest in his side's favour.

"I thought at times we got stretched and they looked a bit fresher than us, but we made a couple of really positive changes," said Morrison.

"We brought on Wiggy, which I thought changed the direction of the game. You don't have to be six foot to be an outlet, you can be strong and read the game well.

"He got into some great positions, pinned some good centre-halves under the ball with his strength and he managed to get us up the pitch."

And those attacking changes failed to have a negative impact on Nomads ability to keep Cove out at the other end.

Morrison added: "It's a lovely position to be in as a manager when you are sat deep and you are very confident that you won't get broken down and when you win the ball you've got Kris Owens, Bakare, Wignall and Jamie Insall's pace, as well as Callum Morris's strength, so you will get more chances."
