CAERNARFON Town manager Sean Eardley said his side will be “giving everything they’ve got” as they prepare to take on Connah’s Quay Nomads.

The Canaries entertain the JD Welsh Premier League title challengers tonight in what is expected to draw another large crowd to The Oval, and Eardley is keen for his squad to put right their disappointing second half display that resulted in a 3-0 reverse at the hands of Newtown last weekend.

He said: “We spoke in depth about the second half against Newtown and collectively agreed our tempo and intensity wasn't up to our usual standards.

“We matched Newtown for attempts at goal and had more possession, but that alone doesn't win football matches.

“Possessing desire, hunger and having a decent work rate are key elements and we're going to need every one of them this week against an excellent side.

“They have good technical players, vastly experienced players, and players who are up for a scrap, so we'll have to match any eleven they throw at us, but we'll be ready and will give everything for our fantastic supporters.”

The Cofis will be without skipper Nathan Craig and the suspended Noah Edwards, but Eardley can once again call upon the services of forward Cai Jones and defender Rhys Roberts following their enforced absences against the Robins.

Former Bangor City manager Craig Harrison will be in the Nomads’ dugout after joining the club as first team coach last week, and the ambitious side will be looking to get back to winning ways following their defeat at defending champions The New Saints.
