MATCH PREVIEW: NOMADS AIM TO TIGHTEN GRIP ON SECOND PLACE

Friday night will see Connah's Quay Nomads look to tighten our grip on second place in the JD Welsh Premier League as we travel to Maes Tegid to face Bala Town.

The Nomads come into the game three points clear of third-placed Barry Town United, who play TNS in Saturday evening's live televised game and will be looking to bounce back from last weekend's defeat at Caernarfon Town.

The game at The Oval saw The Nomads dominate for large spells of the game, but the Sgorio Goal of the Week from Gareth Evans was enough to down The Nomads, and as TNS thumped Newtown 6-0 we now find ourselves seven points adrift of The Saints with just three games to play.

Our last visit to Maes Tegid saw a 2-1 defeat as The Lakesiders raced to an early two goal lead before a Rob Hughes effort in the second half, but it wasn't enough to rescue a point on Boxing Day. Earlier in the season a late Andy Owens header was enough to see The Nomads take a 1-0 victory in the Nathaniel MG Cup and our most recent game against Bala at Deeside also saw a late Conor Harwood header give The Nomads all three points, so it could be another late header that does the job this time around.

The game kicks off at Maes Tegid at 7:45pm on Friday night and will be covered by not only our Twitter feed, but also live on Sgorio's Facebook and YouTube channels.
