Newtown v Connah’s Quay | Wednesday – 19:45
Connah’s Quay took a break from the league as they booked their place in the IRN Bru Cup semi final over the weekend, but tonight the Nomads have a chance to go three points clear at the top of the WPL table.

Andy Morrison’s Nomads won 1-2 against Queen’s Park in Scotland on Friday night, but in the meantime, The New Saints gained three points against title-challengers Barry Town to go level on points at the summit.

After two seasons in the Bottom Six, Newtown are pushing for a return to the top half and are currently sitting in 6th position with the chance of climbing up to 4th if they beat Connah’s Quay tonight.

The Robins are unbeaten in their seven home games in all competitions this season (W6, D1), with only TNS managing to pick up a point away at Latham Park this term.

Chris Hughes’ side won 7-1 at home to Llanelli in their last outing, and Newtown will be full of confidence having won three of their last four home matches against Connah’s Quay.

(But the Nomads won the reverse fixture against Newtown at Deeside earlier this season, easing to a 3-1 victory after James Owen netted for the Nomads in the first minute..
