CALLUM MORRIS is looking to cap one of the biggest weeks in Connah’s Quay Nomads’ history with a memorable victory.

The Nomads are the first Welsh team - and first from south of the border - to secure a place in the final of the Scottish Challenge Cup with Championship high-flyers Ross County standing between Andy Morrison’s men and an historic success in Inverness on Saturday evening, (4.30pm).

Morris knows how important Nomads’ run to the final has been, for both the Flintshire club and the Welsh Premier League.

“It’s definitely the biggest week since I’ve been at the club and probably in the club’s history,” said Morris.

“To be in a final of a competition with clubs from different countries shows how far we’ve come and hopefully we can go on and win it.

“It’s massive for the club and massive for the league as it shows the progression of both.

“We got to the semi-finals of the League Cup, we are in the semi-finals of the Welsh Cup and we are in the final of this, so you can see the progression each year.

“Hopefully we can do ourselves and the league justice in the final. It would be a credit to the hard work of the staff and players this season if we could win it.

“I don’t think we quite get the credit we deserve for what we’ve done this season, so winning would bring some welcome recognition.”

Nomads go into the clash as 3/1 underdogs for victory against a Ross County side - priced at 2/7 - flying high at the top of the Scottish Championship.

But Morris and his team-mates are no strangers to proving people wrong having recorded Europa League wins against Helsinki and Stabaek in the last three years, and accounted for Falkirk, Coleraine, Queen’s Park and Edinburgh City on the way to the Scottish Challenge Cup final.

“We are not stupid, we know we are going in as underdogs, but that is the same as in Europe,” said Morris.

“We will come up with a game-plan, give it our best shot and see what happens.

“We’ve had some really good results in Europe, we beat Helsinki and Stabaek, so that will stand us in good stead.

“They are a very good team. They are quite a way ahead at the top of their league, so they look to be a Scottish Premier League team in waiting, so they are obviously a decent team.

“But, as they say, bring it on.”

Morris, Nomads’ designated penalty taker, stepped up to take the first spot-kick as the Flintshire outfit overcame Edinburgh City 5-4 in a Deeside Stadium shootout after 120 minutes of semi-final action had finished locked at 1-1.

The 26-year-old, however, is keen to avoid another nail-biting finish if at all possible in tomorrow’s final.

“I don’t know about that,” said Morris when asked whether he’d take his chances with penalties.

“I would have to see on the day.

“Penalties are horrible for any player, so I’d rather win it in 90 minutes if possible.

“We’ve got some experienced lads and lads who can score goals, so we’ve got a good mix.

“Hopefully someone stands up on the day.”
