Andy Morrison hailed "a job well done" as Connah's Quay Nomads eased their way to a 2-0 victory over Rhyl.

Nathan Woolfe opened the scoring direct from a corner, before Ryan Wignall made the most of a defensive slip to add a quickfire second and kill off the contest.

Having reached the last 16 of the competition, Nomads boss Morrison was pleased to progress past a determined Rhyl outfit at Belle Vue.

"It's a job well done, simple as that," said Morrison.

"In the first-half it could have been five, six or seven and then in the second-half they've got the wind and we've not taken the opportunities that we've had.

"That's a reflection of how pre-season has been, we've not been creating a huge amount of chances because we've been working on the defensive side.

"Maybe that's something to sharpen up on because we've had five, six, seven or eight chances and if you take them it's really harsh on Rhyl.

"It was a great test for us in the end, when you come away from here when the wind has been blowing with a 2-0 win you're delighted - I'd have taken that before the game."

Morrison handed a debut to Kris Owens, the left-sided player replacing Woolfe in the second period.

"We're delighted to welcome Kris to the club," said Morrison of the former Liverpool and Bristol Rovers youngster.

"He has trained with us through pre-season and can play anywhere down the left. His attitude and desire to be part of the group shone through and it became a very easy decision to offer him a contract for the coming season."
