Caernarfon Town FC
JD Welsh Premier League
|26.10.18 | 7:45pm|
Friday night will see Connah's Quay Nomads head to The Oval to face Caernarfon Town in the JD Welsh Premier League.
Our last competitive trip to the home of The Canaries was almost ten years ago in December 2008 - a game which saw The Nomads come out 2-0 victors thanks to goals from Aden Shannon and Adam Dickinson and our most recent visit was a 3-0 victory in a pre-season friendly in July 2012.
The Nomads come in to the game in second place, just a point off top spot following a 3-0 defeat at Park Hall last week at the hands of TNS, and despite the defeat the performance was impressive with things just not falling our way in the box. Caernarfon come into the game also on the back of a 3-0 defeat, theirs at home to Newtown last weekend, so both sides will be looking to return to winning ways.
Our last meeting in the league was one of our only three defeats this season, at home in early September, following our victory at Falkirk in the Irn Bru Cup just 48 hours earlier. Caernarfon will likely feature ex-Nomads Jamie Crowther, however Noah Edwards will be suspended for the game along with Nathan Craig who is also suspended.
Ahead of the game, Andy Morrison said "We head to Caernarfon on Friday looking to bounce back from the result against TNS, but certainly not the performance. Over the season, our level of performance has improved game-on-game - we have set really high standards and those standards will have to be met on Friday if we are to go to Caernarfon and get the result that takes us back to the top of the league.
For me, the best thing to happen to the Welsh Premier League since I've been involved in it is Caernarfon Town - the support and atmosphere created at their games is a part of football I greatly miss - I went last Friday and there was close to 1100 at the game and the atmosphere was terrific - the fans create the 12th man mentality and that makes games even tougher for the opposition, but as a group, we can't wait for Friday night."
The game kicks off at 7:45pm from The Oval and will be covered as always by our minute-by-minute Twitter coverage.
