Tonight's game will see The Nomads look to regain the top spot in the JD Welsh Premier League with a result againt Bangor City.
The Citizens have already been to Deeside Stadium this season, but in the Nathaniel MG Cup, which saw late goals from Callum Morris and Michael Wilde secure The Nomads' place in the next round, however they were also the last team to inflict a defeat on Andy Morrison's team. That took place at Bangor back in late September and The Nomads have gone on to be undefeated in all competitions since then, progressing to the semi finals of the Nathaniel MG Cup in the process.
While The Nomads currently sit second, just one point behind Cardiff Met, Bangor are just three points behind in fourth place, despite facing three defeats in 13 days in October at the hands of Cardiff Met, Prestatyn and Cefn Druids. Recent victories over Newtown and Aberystwyth have seen Kevin Nicholson get his side back on track in the fight for a top six place before the split.
Ahead of the game, Andy Morrison said "Everyone connected with the Club can't wait for Friday's game against Bangor - there is always a great atmosphere with evening games.
Bangor are back to winning ways after a small blip - the league is very tight at the top and it's important to keep picking up points in every game you play.
We have a very good home record this year and the players need no reminding that it will take a very good team to beat us at the Deeside Stadium. We can only focus on what we do and control the things that we can control.
The 30 point target which, in recent years, has cemeted a top six finish might this year be a touch short - I think it will be 32 points and that remains our only target."
