Quaymen set their sights on top spot.

Byline: JD CYMRU PREMIER Carl Field sport@walesonline.co.uk

CONNAH'S Quay Nomads can move joint top of the JD Cymru Premier - temporarily at least - with a victory over Aberystwyth Town on Deeside this evening (7.45pm).

Priestley Farquharson's first half goal was the difference as the Nomads defeated Cefn Druids on Tuesday night - their third 1-0 win on the spin having beaten Bala Town and then Cove Rangers in the Scottish Challenge Cup by the same scoreline.

They remain unbeaten so far in league and cup, although boss Andy Morrison has called on his side to be more ruthless ahead of their third game in the space of six days.

"Our decision-making and finishing has to be better at times," he said.

"We have to be better in possession of the ball, especially when teams are throwing caution to the wind against us.

"We must punish that when we win the ball back because it's going to catch us out.

"At the moment we're coming up a bit short in that department, but they boys are honest and we'll sharpen up on that and be better."

Champions The New Saints lead the way heading into the sixth round of fixtures.

Scott Ruscoe's side bounced back from their Scottish Challenge Cup disappointment at Stenhousemuir with a 2-1 home win over Newtown on Tuesday night to go top for the first time this season.

Next up for them is a trip to Cardiff Met on Monday night.

A point behind TNS, Met are still unbeaten and have 11 points from five games, as do Barry Town United as they head to promoted Airbus UK Broughton tomorrow - buoyed by picking up their first win at Aberystwyth last weekend.

Other promoted side Penybont and Carmarthen Town are the only two sides yet to record a win ahead of trips to Caernarfon Town and Cefn Druids respectively.

The other game tomorrow sees Newtown host Bala.
