ANDY MORRISON saluted a “massive effort” as Connah’s Quay Nomads completed a perfect week with a 4-1 victory over Aberystwyth Town.

Nomads followed up 1-0 wins against Cove Rangers in the Scottish Challenge Cup and Cefn Druids in the Cymru Premier with another important league success.

Callum Morris scored from the spot, pictured below, before Ryan Wignall, Michael Bakare and Declan Poole completed the rout for Nomads, who had George Horan sent-off with over half an hour to play.

Morrison was delighted with a good week’s work, even if Aberystwyth did score a late consolation through Joe Phillips.

“You can’t give the team, players, squad and staff big enough praise,” said boss Morrison. “It’s been a massive effort. We went into the Cove game knowing we had massive games ahead.

“It was really important for me, but for the staff - Craig (Harrison) and Jay (Catton) - they talked about the two league games being bigger.

“I always think the next game is the biggest one, you play the best you can, see what comes from that and then you move on.

“We put big demands on the players before the Cove game, we said it was a huge week in our season.

“I can’t speak highly enough of them because when we finished on Tuesday and I was very animated and disappointed in some of our play, the ferocity in their eyes and body language said they were ready to go again - and they really were.”

Victory moved Nomads up to third in the table, ahead of Cardiff Met who will look to inflict a second defeat of the Cymru Premier on The New Saints this evening.
