JD Welsh Premier League
|01.12.18 | 2:30pm|
This afternoon sees the return of JD Welsh Premier League action to Deeside Stadium as The Nomads look to remain top of the table.
Coming into the game, it is top versus bottom as Llandudno come to town, but we know that we will be in for a challenge as Llandudno's last visit to Deeside saw a 1-1 draw played out in a soaking encounter in October 2017 as both sides battled against the effects of Storm Brian.
Hopefully today's encounter will be less weather influenced, however Storm Diana has been making it's presence felt over the past few days and could potentially do so again today.
Coming into the game, The Nomads sit top of the table and will be hoping to return to winning ways following a recent draw at Newtown and first ever loss to Cardiff Met last weekend. Llandudno on the other hand will be looking for a first league victory in 10 games, a run that stretches back to a 1-0 victory away at Cardiff Met in mid-September.
With ex Nomads in the shape of Mike Pearson, Kai Edwards, Matty Williams and the manager himself, Iwan Williams, Jay Catton knows that we will be in for a tough game.
"Following a very tough week, which saw us play three games in seven days including away fixtures and travel to Glasgow and Newtown mid-week, it has been a great week to allow players to fully rest up and recover going into the December period.
Today we face a Llandudno side that find themselves currently bottom of the Welsh Premier League with a team and squad which many had as nailed on for the top six and challenging for a European place at the start of the season.
Although they have had a difficult start with Welsh Premier League winners, players who have played regularly in Europe, along with the big investment paid to certain players within the group, it would be very surprising if they do not gain safety and progress up the table as the season progresses.
Today is the first game of a massive month for the club as we face five Welsh Premier League fixtures along with a Welsh Cup fixture at Guilsfield. A big month where all players will be required and utilised as we continue to push on for the season and look to make European qualification for the fourth consecutive campaign."
The game kicks off at 2:30pm and will be covered live on our Twitter feed.
