The Lakesiders welcome Connah's Quay Nomads to Maes Tegid this mid-week, in a clash that could have a massive influence going into Phase 2, with just four points difference between the two sides going into tonight's Cymru Premier fixture. The Town bounced back in great style against Pontypridd United this past weekend with a 3-0 victory, following a disappointing 2-1 defeat just a week ago against the same opponents.
The Nomads have drawn a blank in their past two outings, with two 0-0 draws against Newtown and Flint Town. A win for the visitors this evening will open up a seven point gap between the Town and the Nomads, with the final game of Phase 1 coming up in just over a week's time. However a defeat would make things interesting, as both teams could enter Phase 2 with just a point between them, depending on what results come in the final game of Phase 1.

Mike Wilde - The 39 year old veteran is available to return to the squad this evening following a three match ban after he picked up a red card against The New Saints just before Christmas. Wilde holds on to joint fourth in the Cymru Premier Goalscoring Charts this season, despite picking up the red card. He has grabbed three goals in his last four appearances in all competitions, scoring two against Aberystwyth Town and one against Taffs Well in the Nathaniel MG Cup. Should the Nomads talisman feature tonight, there's no doubt he will be handful for the Town backline, as manager Colin Caton will already know.
It's been a tough run of three consecutive defeat in all competitions for the Town against tonight's opponents, having been defeated twice in the league and once in the Semi Final of the Nathaniel MG Cup in our most recent meetings. The Town's last victory against the Nomads was back in September of 2021, when Dave Edwards' first half free kick secured the three points at the Deeside Stadium, following a red card to George Horan for a foul on the last man.
