Cardiff Metropolitan University FC
JD Welsh Premier League
|22.12.18 | 2:30pm|
Saturday afternoon sees Connah's Quay Nomads host Cardiff Metropolitan University at Deeside Stadium for the second time in little under a month.
The previous meeting was in the Nathaniel MG Cup Semi Final which saw The Nomads fall to a 1-0 defeat following a first half strike from Adam Roscrow, which booked The Archers' place in the final against Cambrian and Clydach, so there is no doubt that Andy Morrison will be looking for some form of revenge over the students, managed by Christian Edwards.
The last time that the Met visited Deeside in league competition was in March this year, a game which saw Rob Hughes grab his first goal for the club, directly from a corner as The Nomads ran out 3-0 winners on the day.
Going into the game, The Nomads currently sit atop the league table and will be looking to hold on to that position going into the Christmas double-header with Bala Town, while the Met currently find themselves in eighth position, in search of a top-six berth.
Ahead of the game, Andy Morrison said; "We always have very tight, tactical games against Cardiff Met with small details being the big difference and I expect this game to be no different.
Met are getting their players back and are looking a very strong, dangerous side again - I have no doubt that without the injuries they have suffered, they would have already qualified for the top six, such is the strength of their squad.
We will again have to be right at the top of our game if we are to get the result that keeps us at the top of the JD Welsh Premier League."
The game kicks off at 2:30pm at Deeside Stadium and will be covered live on our Twitter feed.
