Match Preview: Bala Town vs Connah's Quay Nomads

Your Bank Holiday Weekend starts here!

The Town welcome Connah's Quay Nomads to Maes Tegid for Matchday Three of the JD Cymru Premier, as both teams look for their second win of the season.

The Lakesiders head into the match on the back of a scoreless draw at Cyncoed Campus against Cardiff Met, while the Nomads bounced back from their opening day defeat to The New Saints in style. Despite a red card to Callum Bratley in the second half, the Nomads' four goal lead at half-time was more than enough to secure the victory.

Danger Man

Josh Williams - The 19 year old has cemented his place in the Nomads Starting XI following an exciting season in the Cymru Premier last year, becoming a regular starter in the Connah's Quay midfield. Williams has started the season well after a disappointing European campaign, having notched two goals in his last outing against Aberystwyth Town, the youngster will surely be hungry to add to his tally on MD3. Despite the Nomads boasting plenty of attacking options, Williams could be the difference for the visitors this evening.

Previous Meetings

It's been a rather even affair between the two sides in recent meetings, having both picked up two victories a piece in our last six meetings, however bearing in mind, the two victories for the Lakesiders have been in the Nathaniel MG Cup Final on penalties and a JD Welsh Cup Semi Final victory in 90 minutes. Prior to the last six meetings, the Nomads were on top with three victories on the bounce, with an aggregate score of 9-1. The last meeting saw the Town fall to a 2-1 defeat at Maes Tegid, with all three goals coming in the first half of the match, as Harry Franklin and George Horan scored either side of a George Newell goal.
