ANDY MORRISON knows just how tough tonight is going to be but he's just hoping for a bit of luck!

Ending an interview by wishing him and his Connah's Quay Nomads team the best of luck in this evening's clash with Dinamo Tbilisi at The Racecourse, Morrison replied: "Thanks. We're going to need it!"

But don't rule out the unexpected. Shocks happen in football and having knocked out Kilmarnock last season, Nomads will give it there all.

"Tbilisi are one of the big names in European football. They've got quality throughout a team full of international players. They an exceptional team and beat their unbeaten league leaders at the weekend.

"We know it's an incredibly huge challenge for us but we'll give it our best shot, as we always do."

Nomads, who headed straight into the Europa League competition after losing their Champions League qualifier to Sarajevo in Cardiff last month, kicked off the defence of their Cymru Premier League title on Saturday with a 1-1 draw against Bala Town, who are also in European action tonight.

A stoppage-time leveller from Sameron Dool earned Nomads a point with Morrison admitting: "It was great to get that goal. We hadn't lost at home for 18 months so it helped put a smile on our face going into tonight's game.

"We were also without three our four players and maybe tonight.

"But we have a lot of experience and wisdom in our squad and they will have to use that tonight to beat a very, very good team.

"We know it's an incredibly huge challenge for us. It's up to us to play to our game plan and that every single player sticks to the smallest details we have given them.

"If we do that and they have an off day then who knows. In these kind of games you've got to get everything right."
