CONNAH’S QUAY NOMADS manager Andy Morrison is backing his side to rise to the occasion and continue their European adventure.

Nomads face Georgian champions Dinamo Tbilisi on Thursday evening in the Europa League second qualifying round at Wrexham’s Racecourse ground.

Although he is under no illusion about the size of the task facing Nomads, Morrison insists the Welsh champions can win and secure a place in the next round.

“They are Georgian champions, an exceptional team with so much quality throughout the team,” Morrison told the official club website.

“So many internationals so it is going to be tough.

“We have got to quieten things down over the next couple of days and then build gradually into that game on Thursday, and make sure we are ready to go.

“Make sure that we come up with a game-plan that we stick to and if things go our way, and we score at the right times, and the players have the night of their life, we can win the game.

“It is a massive ask but we have shown it many times when we have gone away to other countries and won games of football in Europe.

“It is going to be a siege mentality at times because this is an exceptional outfit but the boys will be looking forward to it.”

Nomads went into Saturday’s Cymru Premier League opener against Bala Town with a double dose of good news.

Morris was named the Cymru Premier League’s manager of the season for guiding them to a first ever league title while Priestley Farquharson picked up the young player award. Bala’s Chris Venables scooped the player of the season honour.

Nomads left it late to salvage a 1-1 draw against Bala at The Deeside Stadium.

Sameron Dool equalised with a stunning strike from outside the box in the 94th minute as the defending champions began their title defence with a point.

Morrison felt it was the least his side deserved, although his players were disappointed not to make a winning start.

“I looked in the changing room afterwards and they were very buoyant,” added Morrison.

“I said to them don’t be disappointed. They were disappointed because they got a point; they thought they did enough in the game to win it.

“But we will look back on that in time and see that as a very good point.”

Thursday’s tie was originally scheduled for a 7pm kick off time but that has now been brought forward to a 6pm kick off due to the floodlights at The Racecourse not meeting UEFA minimum requirements.

The club also revealed how fans can watch the game, issuing the following statement: “We are delighted to confirm that the team, who so excellently streamed our Champions’ League match against FK Sarajevo at the Cardiff City Stadium, have once again been confirmed to stream this match.

“Led by former Sky Sports correspondent Bryn Law, Tagg Media will again be streaming the fixture live to our YouTube and Facebook channels and Bryn will be joined by former Wales international Barry Horne.”
