No one at Connah’s Quay is undroppable, Morrison warns
gap Connah’s Quay boss Andy Morrison has warned his side that he will not hesitate to drop any under-performing players over the last few weeks of the Dafabet Welsh Premier League season.
A 2-0 win over the students of Cardiff Metropolitan University in their last outing has placed the Nomads in an excellent position for automatic Europa League qualification.
Morrison’s men are currently three points adrift of second-placed Bala Town, although that gap could be extended before the Nomads’ trip to Carmarthen Town on Saturday.
With plenty still to play for in the race for Europe, Morrison insists his side will need to be in top form, adding that anyone turning in substandard performances faces the prospect of losing their place in the team.
He told the club’s official website: “We have a fully fit squad to choose from apart from our long-term injuries, so I will be using the full squad over the next three games which all come in the space of a week, so again everyone must be at the top of their game to stay in the team.”
The last time Morrison’s men came up against the Old Gold saw them slip to a 1-0 defeat at the Deeside Stadium, courtesy of Ceri Morgan’s 78th-minute strike.
Morrison is expecting another tough contest this weekend, but says there is plenty of reason to be positive ahead of the trip to the Cymru Tyres Stadium.
He said: “All of our games against Carmarthen this season have been tight and Saturday’s match will be no different. Such is the quality of the Top Six this season, any point is a good point – after the Bala game, I said that the point there would prove to be a massive point, and to follow that up with a thoroughly professional performance against Cardiff Met was very pleasing.”
