CONNAH’S QUAY NOMADS take on The New Saints this weekend (Oct 9) in a big game for both sides.

Champions Connah’s Quay find themselves in eighth place in the table after two wins and three draws from their opening seven games.

They also go into the game with new manager Craig Harrison taking charge of his second game following the departure of Andy Morrison.

Last weekend they drew 1-1 with Haverfordwest County having lost their previous two matches.

In contrast TNS have won six and drawn one of their opening seven games and they sit four points clear at the top of the table.

They also hold a ten point gap over the Nomads, something which they will look to add to on Saturday.

TNS beat Aberystwyth 3-0 in their last game but they will undoubtedly face a tougher test against the champions.

The last game at Deeside saw the sides draw 0-0 but prior to that the Nomads had beaten TNS 4-1 at Park Hall.

A win for the Nomads could reignite their championship defence while a win for TNS will see take an early advantage in the title race.

The game kicks off at 12:45 and is live on S4C.

Elsewhere on Saturday, second placed Bala Town host bottom side Cefn Druids as they look to keep up their excellent start to the season.

Flint Town and Barry Town play each other with both sides looking to get out of their two-game winless runs.

Cardiff Met will look to build on their 4-2 win over the Druids as they host Haverfordwest County who have four points from their last two games.

The other game sees Newtown taking on Penybont with kick offs at 2:30pm.
