The Nomads head to The Oval on Friday night with the aim of closing the gap at the top of the league with TNS.
The New Saints demolished Bala Town on Wednesday night, leaving the champions five points clear at the top of the league with just four games remaining in the 2018/19 campaign.
The Nomads will be looking for a favour from Newtown, Barry or Caernarfon as they face TNS before the final day clash at Park Hall, but before that, The Nomads will need to overcome Caernarfon on Friday night to keep up the chase.
The Nomads last visited The Oval just a few weeks back in the JD Welsh Cup where a Rob Hughes wonderstrike was accompanied by a Mike Wilde second half goal to give The Nomads a 2-1 win on a ground where we had been frustrated earlier in the season when the phase one fixture ended 0-0 despite dominating most of the game.
Ahead of the game, Andy Morrison said; "Every game feels like a cup final at this stage of the season and Friday night's visit to Caernarfon will again be a huge game for the club.
What we can expect is a great atmosphere and this will inspire the players to raise their game. Caernarfon have been a breath of fresh air to the league this season and have over-achieved in many people's eyes, but not in mine - the common denominator in winning games of football is a good manager and good players and they have both and rightly deserve to be in the top six.
I felt we looked a touch tired on Sunday and understandably so with the huge games we have played of late - when you have those occasions where you're not 100%, you must stay in the game, be resilient and find a way to win, which we did and the amazing season we are having will now culminate with another final where we get the chance to defend the JD Welsh Cup, but before that we have four more 'cup finals' to play starting on Friday night."
The game kicks off at 7:45pm from The Oval and will be streamed live on Sgorio's Facebook and YouTube pages as well as being covered by our great Twitter feed.
