ANDY MORRISON scoffed at suggestions that Connah’s Quay Nomads could emulate Manchester City by winning a domestic treble.

Pep Guardiola’s City brushed aside every opponent to win the Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup last season.

And Morrison, a former Manchester City captain, was asked whether Nomads could complete a clean sweep of trophies in Wales.

The Flintshire side have booked a place in the final of the League Cup, where they will face STM Sports on February 1, after beating Bala Town 2-0 last weekend, and they currently top the Cymru Premier table by three points.

But there are still 17 games of the league campaign remaining, while Nomads are yet to play a game in this season’s Welsh Cup - a trophy they won in 2018/18.

Asked whether the treble was possible, Morrison laughed before answering: “We ‘re a long, long way off. We haven’t played our first game in the Welsh Cup yet!”

Morrison is, however, pleased with the progress of Nomads, who know that anything less than victory will mean questions are asked.

“The identity of the football club over the last four years is to win and be successful and it’s ingrained in the DNA now that we win games of football,” he continued. “If we don’t there are massive questions asked of us. The questions are coming from our chairman, who has filtered that down to me. We are expected to win everything and win games of football and I put that on to the players.

“Winning has been ingrained in me all of my life - I need to win games of football, I need to find a way to be successful.”

Nomads have the chance to make it 16 league games unbeaten at second from bottom Penybont tomorrow, the final league meeting before captain George Horan starts a four-match ban.

Horan has been found guilty of an act of violent conduct, which carries a three-match suspension, by an FAW disciplinary panel following an incident against title rivals The New Saints on November 1.

The 37-year-old has seen the suspension increased by a further game as this is the former Chester defender’s second offence of the season following his dismissal against Aberystwyth.

Horan’s suspension starts from Friday, December 6.
