This Friday, The Nomads travel to Bangor City to face the Citizens in an all-important clash in the race for European football.
The Nomads come into the game on the back of a thoroughly professional 2-0 victory away at Cardiff Met, while Kevin Nicholson’s side will be looking to bounce back from their recent 3-0 defeat at the hands of TNS. Currently just three points separate the two sides, with The Nomads sitting second and Bangor, fourth in the table. A victory for The Nomads would be of huge importance as it would see a six point gap open up over Bangor and a five point gap over Bala, who don’t play this weekend due to TNS’ involvement in the Irn Bru Cup Semi Final against Dumbarton. While such a victory would be massive, it will not be an easy task as Bangor are the only side to have done the double over The Nomads in the first phase of the campaign, winning 2-0 at Deeside and 1-0 at Bangor.
Ahead of the game, Andy Morrison said “We were pleased with the performance on Sunday at Cardiff Met – I thought we looked solid and also offered a real threat on the counter-attack with our pace.
Sunday’s game was the first time this season we’ve had a fully fit squad to pick from – every team has periods in a season where injuries and suspensions affect selection and we have had more than our fair share, so it’s great to have the headache of a full squad to pick from.”
Morrison concluded; “We will have to reach the same standards we showed on Sunday against Cardiff against a very good Bangor team this coming Friday if we are to get the result that we are going there to get.”
