Aberystwyth Town FC
JD Cymru Premier
|25.10.19 | 7:45pm|
Connah's Quay Nomads will be aiming to make it twelve games unbeaten in the JD Cymru Premier on Friday night as we travel to Park Avenue to face Aberystwyth Town.
Last week's dramatic late win at Cardiff Met saw The Nomads not only continue our unbeaten streak, but also end that of The Archers, who lost for the first time this season, meaning that the only unbeaten sides remaining in the league are ourselves and second-placed Barry Town United.
Aberystwyth come into the game on the back of three straight draws, having faced Penybont, Cardiff Met and Carmarthen Town so far in October, with the games ending 1-1, 2-2 and 0-0 respectively. Prior to that, Aber's last win in the league came back in late August with an away victory at Cefn Druids.
As previously mentioned, last week's victory at Cardiff Met and results elsewhere saw The Nomads head to the top of the table for the first time this season, leapfrogging Barry who drew 1-1 at Bala.
Aber find themselves in tenth position on nine points after eleven games having won two and drawn three of their opening eleven fixtures of the season.
Our last trip to Park Avenue
The last time we faced Aber at Park Avenue was in early January where an early start and a late flourish saw us leave with a 6-1 victory. Callum Morris and Andy Owens had us 2-0 up by he 31st minute and despite Aber getting a goal back in the 38th minute, it was The Nomads who would run away with the fixture scoring three in the final 12 minutes.
From the gaffer
Ahead of the game, Andy Morrison said "We are in fine form having won six of our last seven games and still unbeaten in the league.
We head to Aberystwyth knowing we are in for a difficult game, such is the standard of the Cymru Premier League, there are no easy games.
Aberystwyth, on their day, are capable of beating anyone and have players who can hurt you if you're not at the top of your game.
We hope to have a couple of players back from injury and with three games in seven days again, we will need everyone available."
