Match Preview: Bala Town vs Connah's Quay Nomads

The Lakesiders return to Maes Tegid after an emphatic performance last time out on the road at Latham Park, as the Town recorded a 5-1 victory over Newtown with George Newell and Osebi Abadaki netting the goals.

Our last match at Maes Tegid saw us advance to the Semi Finals of the JD Welsh Cup with a 3-0 win over Flint Mountain, where we would ultimately be drawn against tonight's visitors.

The Nomads are unbeaten in their last five outings with four wins and a draw, including their 4-1 win against Buckley Town in the JD Welsh Cup Quarter Final. Their last outing would be a 2-1 win over Cardiff Met at home, despite a nervy ending with the Met grabbing a goal in the final quarter of an hour.

Danger Man

Jordan Davies - The 28 year old has been the star man for the Nomads this season, with 17 goals to his name in the JD Cymru Premier and is only two goals behind the front-runner Brad Young of TNS. Davies; who is due to join Greenock Morton in Scotland this summer, will be hoping to leave his current club with a farewell gift of European Football and a possible JD Welsh Cup triumph, with only the Lakesiders in their way of a spot in the Final. The Welshman will also be eyeing the JD Cymru Premier Golden Boot should he be able to surpass Brad Young of TNS.

Previous Meetings   

In the last five meetings, the Lakesiders have come out on top on two occasions with a 1-0 league win at the start of this JD Cymru Premier season, courtesy of an own goal from former Lakesider John Rushton and a 3-2 win in the Semi Final of the JD Welsh Cup last season thanks to goals from Nathan Peate, George Newell and Chris Venables. The last meeting between the two sides was a 1-1 draw away at the Essity Stadium, with Jack Kenny's goal in the second half cancelling out Osebi Abadaki's first half goal.
