ANDY MORRISON’S more than happy at the part he and his Connah’s Quay Nomads team has played in ending The New Saints’ dominance in Welsh football.

Thirteen league titles in 20 years tells the story of just how TNS have ran the show. But that all changed last season when Nomads became the first side since Bangor City - then managed by Nomads stalwart Nev Powell in 2011 - to take the title away from the Oswestry-based Saints.

Nomads’ success last season hasn’t proved to be a one-off either as the champions head into the last 10 games of the season three points clear at the top of the table.

Morrison said: “I remember coming in at Airbus with Andy Preece and we’d have meetings before the start of the season and say: ‘We’re not going to finish top but how do we get second place?

“That’s how superior they where when Craig Harrison was in charge. But things change. For Mike Harris and TNS all they’ve known is league titles and Champions League football over the last few years.

“We want to change that and it shocked me that they parted company with Scott Ruscoe just a game into the season’s restart.”

Morrison’s attention now turns towards a frenetic finish to the season with 10 games in 35 days, starting at home to fifth-placed Penybont tomorrow.

“Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday” said Morrison. “It’s great, fantastic. It’s what you want in football - to play games.

“It’ll be us and TNS that’ll probably be able to deal with that the best. We’ve got 60 per cent of our squad full time and the rest part time. That gives us a little edge on those Tuesday night games.

“It’s going to be one game at a time, it looks quite difficult when you look at it collectively, but when you look at it one game at a time and I look at the group that I’ve got, I know I can make changes and freshen it up and we won’t weaken the team.”

Experienced strikers Craig Curran and Michael Wilde will be key for Nomads, who had new signing Neil Danns on the scoresheet for the first time in the 5-1 win at Newtown.

TNS head to Bala in the game of the day while the other top-six fixture is at Caernarfon Town where Huw Griffiths’ side take on Barry Town.
