Match Preview: Connah's Quay Nomads vs Bala Town

Following the Lakesiders' good start to the season, form has dipped in recent weeks, having gone on a winless run of seven matches in all competitions. The Town have managed two wins in our last two outings with victories against Colwyn Bay in the league and Llandudno in the JD Welsh Cup.

The Town look to have turned a corner after our winless run, with two victories in our last two; however with Connah's Quay Nomads unbeaten since their defeat at Maes Tegid, it will be a tough task for the Lakesiders to replicate that early season victory.

Since their defeat at Maes Tegid, The Nomads have gone unbeaten in their last nine outings in all competitions, with just one draw against Aberystwyth Town in their previous league match.

Danger Man

Jordan Davies - Following his return to the Nomads after a spell at Haverfordwest County, Davies has been in red-hot form, sitting 2nd in the top goal-scoring charts for the JD Cymru Premier. The 27 year old has on average; a goal contribution in every domestic game he has featured in so far this season, having netted 10 goals and an assist in the league, with four goal contributions in domestic cup competitions. The Forward's last outing saw him score a hat-trick against Caernarfon Town in a 4-1 win in the JD Welsh Cup, with Davies also grabbing an assist for the Nomads' other goal.

Previous Meetings

The last meeting between the two sides came just shy of 2 months ago at Maes Tegid, as the Town collected all three points following a freak own-goal by Nomads keeper and former Town player John Rushton. The Nomads' last victory came at Maes Tegid in March this year in the Championship Conference of the JD Cymru Premier, taking all three points in a 2-1 win following goals from Harry Franklin and George Horan.
