CONNAH'S QUAY NOMADS thumped Aberystwyth Town 6-1 to stay top of the Welsh Premier League - but manager Andy Morrison was far from happy.

A Callum Morris penalty and a strike from Andy Owens put Nomads two goals to the good, but Porya Ahmadi halved the deficit prior to the break.

Morrison was annoyed that his side let Aberystwyth back into the game.

He said: "It was a good performance, in periods, but not a fantastic 90 minutes.

"I thought we were excellent early on and what we went with (formation-wise) caused them no-end of trouble.

"We had so many opportunities in the first 10 minutes, we were just opening them up for fun and we got the penalty and we get another goal before we get two cleared off the line.

"It's then about being professional and keep recycling the ball, keep doing what you do and the third goal will come.

"But no, we started being unprofessional, individuals started wanting to have their own little show and it bit us.

"When you should be three or four up and it's back to 2-1, their tails are up and we are in a bit of bother then because of the way they play. It becomes a bit of a basketball game."

Morrison changed things up at the break, introducing Jonny Spittle for Ryan Wignall, and Nomads scored four times without reply.

Michael Wilde, Michael Bakare, Michael Parker and Rob Hughes helped give the scoreline a healthy look.

Morrison continued: "We went back to a structure we are familiar with and it totally nullifies the opposition.

"They couldn't go anywhere, their left-sided centre-half has probably put 10 balls out of play, probably 15 balls out of play.

"From that we've scored from a long throw. I've said that they are starting to come and we are starting to look dangerous because our movement and aggression is better.

"And then the right result happens. It becomes four, five and six. Five and six flatter us really. It's a 4-1 game.

But after half an hour it could have been 3-3 and I can't deal with that as a coach and the way I see the game. I can't deal with open games.

"It might be entertaining for the crowd, but it's not what I'm about, it's not my identity and it's horrible.

"We got back to basics in the second-half and we battered them.

"Nobody comes here and scores six goals."

Nomads remain a point clear of Barry Town and two ahead of The New Saints, who were 4-0 winners against Newtown.

Jamie Mullan (2), Aeron Edwards and Ryan Brobbel found the net as Saints scored four times in 10 minutes either side of the break.
