Barry Town United
JD Welsh Premier League
|10.11.18 | 2:30pm|
This Saturday sees Connah's Quay Nomads entertain Barry Town United as the top two teams in the JD Welsh Premier League meet at Deeside Stadium.
In a scenario that few would have expected earlier in the season, the two early pacesetters meet this Satruday with crucial points at stake in this top of the table tussle.
Both sides come into the game in rich form with The Nomads having recently qualified for the Nathaniel MG Cup Semi Final with a 1-0 victory over Bala Town, followed up by an impressive 6-0 victory over Llanelli last weekend - a result which could have been double figure had it not been for the heorics of Oliver Davies in the Llanelli goal. Barry meanwhile head to Deeside as the form team in the league, having won their last four games on the bounce including victories over Llandudno, Bala, Llanelli and Caernarfon with their last defeat coming some five weeks back against Newtown at Latham Park.
The two sides last met in the league in early September, a game which saw Barry take The Nomads' then 100% record away with a 2-0 victory thanks to goals from Kayne McLaggon and Mamodou Touray, but Andy Morrison will be looking for a repeat of Barry's last visit to Deeside in January which ended 3-0 in The Nomads' favour with Callum Morris, Michael Wilde and Declan Poole all getting on the scoresheet.
Ahead of the game, Andy Morrison said "It's great to be involved in a top of the table clash - these are the games that we all want to be a part of.
I said at the start of the season that Barry would be a major force and their results have shown that they are serious title contenders. What we need to do is focus on our own game and make sure we ask as many questions as we can of Barry come Saturday - our form has been excellent and out level of performance has increased game-on-game and we know that if we are at the top of our game it will take a very good side to stop us."
