CONNAH’S QUAY NOMADS might be four points clear at the top of the table but no-one is getting carried away.

Nomads landed a significant blow in the title race as they defeated The New Saints 1-0 at the Deeside Stadium on Friday.

Craig Curran settled the contest in Nomads’ favour, although with seven games remaining, the entire club are keeping their feet on the ground.

“It’s just three points and we move on very quickly, but on the day we handled the conditions better and were worthy winners on the night,” said midfielder Callum Morris. “They are probably the worst conditions I’ve seen in my time here. I thought the lads did great.

“With the wind in the first-half we scored a goal at the right time. In the second-half we thought it would be backs to the wall and we defended really well, and we even had some chances to score two or three.

“We dealt with the conditions really well.”

Nomads’ will to win was evident as they edged out their title rivals in horrendous conditions.

“It’s what we do,” said Morris of his side finding a way to win in gale-force winds.

“The gaffer sets us up really well with Craig (Harrison) and Jay (Catton) and we knew what we were going to do.

“We were prepared, stuck to the game plan and won the game.”

But Morris was keen to reiterate that nothing has been decided in the title race with plenty more twists and turns to come.

“It’s just another win,” he continued. “It’s a great start to the second phase with three straight wins and three clean sheets, but it’s just a start and there are still seven games to go.

“We go into the Welsh Cup this week and then concentrate on the league again after that.”

Morris’s words were echoed by left-back Callum Roberts, who knows that there are still 21 points to play for in the battle for top spot.

“It was a very good three points,” said Roberts. “We prepared really well during the week, targeted it as a game we could win and the lads delivered the three points.

“Against TNS it’s never going to be easy.

“The conditions suited us, I thought we played them really well and second-half, in particular, we did a really good job.”

And Roberts signed off by delivering a message seemingly on behalf of the entire Flintshire club as questions about ending Saints’ eight-year dominance continue to be asked.

Roberts declared: “There’s still a long way to go.”
