JD Welsh Premier League
|26.08.17 | 2:30pm|
Two of the three remaining unbeaten sides in the JD Welsh Premier League will meet this Saturday as Connah's Quay Nomads travel to Llandudno.
The Nomads come into the game top of the table having defeated Prestatyn Town and Carmarthen Town in their opening two games, while Llandudno have also beaten Carmarthen and Aberystwyth. The Nomads' have started well, scoring seven goals in the two games, conceding just one, while Llandudno have scored five and conceded zero, so The Nomads will be looking to continuing their scoring form to inflict Llandudno's first goals conceded in the new campaign.
The two sides only met twice last season with The Nomads edging the contests. The first game saw a highly contentious equaliser from Marc Williams give Llandudno a point following a Nathan Woolfe strike in teh 46th minute. Woolfe was also on the scoresheet in the second meeting of the season as his free kick along with a Nick Rushton goal gave The Nomads all three points.
Ahead of the game, Andy Morrison said "After a very pleasing home win against Carmarthen, where we played some of our best football since I've been at the club, we are away to an in-form Llandudno, who, like us have a 100% record.
Alan Morgan has again managed to keep hist best players and has added quality in the likes of Toby Jones. I'm sure they will be a Top Six team this season.
Although I'm largely pleased with our first two performances, there are still areas we need to improve on and this week will work hard to improve on them."
Morrison concluded by saying; "Going into the game, I will be telling my players again, that if they maintain their standards and we keep improving, it will take a very good team to beat us."
The other unbeaten side in the league, Cardiff Met will travel to Bala Town on the same afternoon, meaning that victory for The Nomads and Bala could see Andy Morrison's side open up a three point gap at the top of the league.
