NATHAN WOOLFE believes Connah's Quay Nomads have enough quality in the final third to add Partizan Belgrade to their list of European conquests.

Nomads were beaten 1-0 in the second qualifying round first-leg in Rhyl by Savo Milosevic's Partizan as Aleksandar Scekic volleyed home just after the hour mark.

But Andy Morrison's men were a threat from set-pieces and on the counter with Michael Bakare and Jamie Insall testing the Partizan defence with solo runs and Callum Morris flashing a cross across the box that only needed a touch.

Winger Woolfe is confident Nomads have what it takes to add Partizan's name to those of Stabaek and Kilmarnock, who were stunned 2-0 at Rugby Park two weeks ago.

"I thought we did well going forward," said Woolfe. "They are one of the better teams we've played in Europe and in the past we wouldn't have been able to do much going forward, but we tested them a few times.

"I thought we were a threat going forward, which gives us something to be confident about.

"We looked a threat from corners and set-pieces. We had quite a few which was positive because in Europe we don't always get many."

Woolfe remains confident regarding Nomads' chances because he knows the fighting spirit within the Flintshire club's dressing room.

"It would have been nice to get the 0-0, but a 1-0 defeat isn't too bad and all the boys are together heading to Serbia with something to play for," he continued.

"We always bring an intensity to every game, whether that's in the Welsh Premier League or Europa League.

"We will be up against the fans as well, but we will focus on our game and see what we can do."

Former Wrexham loan man Woolfe was an unused substitute in both legs as Nomads defeated Kilmarnock 3-2 on aggregate in the first qualifying round.

But Woolfe earned a starting spot against Partizan, playing 58 minutes before being replaced by another ex-Wrexham winger in the shape of Bakare.

The 30-year-old was delighted to play his part, revealing his roles and responsibilities at Belle Vue.

He said: "Make sure you're switched on and you run with whoever you're up against and then try and do something going forward.

"You've got to do what you've got to do for the team.

"They were decent. We saw a few little skills in the first-half, they felt intense to play against and there were a few decisions that were a bit soft, but we had a few opportunities."
