ANDY MORRISON insists that table-topping Connah's Quay Nomads have improvements to make after they swatted aside Caernarfon Town 6-2.

Callum Morris scored a first-half hat-trick, including two penalties, before Adam Barton, Michael Wilde and Michael Bakare completed the scoring for Nomads, who had George Horan sent-off three minutes from time.

But it was Nathan Craig's spot-kick in the first period and Cai Jones' strike in the second-half that incurred the wrath of Morrison.

"It doesn't flatter me in any way getting six goals. It doesn't affect my ego in any way," said Morrison, who headed straight to Scotland after the game to watch Edinburgh's goalless Scottish League Two draw with Peterhead the following afternoon.

"It affects me when we concede two goals in the way that we did, like we did last week, and it's going to come back and haunt us.

"We scored some terrific goals. The first goal we scored was terrific play by Bak's (Bakare), who was unplayable at times.

"We get 1-0 up and we then give them the most ridiculous penalty. The lad is going away from goal, facing the stand and we go and give a penalty away.

"I'm sat on the side absolutely exasperated because, yet again, there is a team back in the game at 1-1."

Morrison, who saw his side open up a two-point advantage at the summit, continued: "I don't want to be negative in any way, but I said after the Newtown game that there is a lot more to come from us and there is still a lot more to come from us on that showing.

"I will take a 2-0 win all day over a 6-2 victory like that because it flatters you and leads you into a false sense that you are doing things right when you aren't.

"There are things to go away and look at and we will do.

"Conceding three goals in two games doesn't sit right with me."

Morrison did concede that his side are being affected by a host of injuries to the likes of Ryan Wignall, Declan Poole and Rob Hughes, while John Disney was only able to be named on the bench after welcoming son Teddie into the world.

"We are really struggling, really struggling with players injured," said Morrison.

"We are battening down the hatches and filling holes all over the place, but still coming out on top because of our principles, our desire and our will to win.

"It's been a fantastic start to the second phase with six points from six and sets us up nicely for Edinburgh in the Scottish Challenge Cup.

"I've said to the lads that to go to the next level we really need to up our standards and not kid ourselves that there was a four-goal difference in the game."

Caernarfon manager Sean Eardley tweeted his thoughts on the 90 minutes, writing: "Tough one to take, took the game in the second half but with a little naivety towards the end.

"Effort and work rate there from minute one,we have the character to bounce back, thank you to the amazing Cofi Army, different class."
