Barry Town United
JD Welsh Premier League
|29.10.17 | 2:30pm|
This Sunday sees The Nomads head to Jenner Park to take on Barry Town United for the first time under their new guise.
The Nomads come into the game currently sitting in third place, just three points behind top of the league TNS, who face second placed Cardiff Met this weekend, giving The Nomads the potential to leapfrog the students should results go The Nomads’ way.
Barry come into the game on the back of three successive defeats at the hands of Cardiff Met, Baal Town and Cefn Druids, so Gavin Chesterfield’s side will be no doubt looking to bounce back with the help of the league’s joint second highest goalscorer, Kayne McLaggon.
The Nomads will be full of confidence going into the game, having not lost in the last six games in all competitions, and with a great record in South Wales over recent seasons, Andy Morrison will be looking to continue his side’s good form of late.
Ahead of the game, Andy Morrison said “Having watch Barry last week at Bala in a game they did more then enough to get at least a point in, I’m perfectly aware of how difficult a game this will be. Barry have individual threats throughout their team that we must be aware of.
It’s no surprise to me how well they have done this season along with Prestatyn, you can see the spirit and togetherness that comes with promotion and a period of time together – we always respect the opposition, but I will remind the players what our strengths are and how hard we are to beat. We go into the game in good form after a very good win mid-week against an in-form Airbus team in the Nathaniel MG Cup.”
Morrison continued to say; “We made eight changes to the team from the weekend’s draw against Llandudno – what pleased me most was the shape and discipline that the team kept throughout the game which made it very difficult for Airbus to get any rhythm going – the win has earned us a home tie against TNS in the semi final – having reached the semi’s the last three seasons in a row, it would be nice to get to a final!”
The game kicks off on Sunday afternoon at 2:30pm at Jenner Park.
