Connah’s Quay vs Kilmarnock Match Preview
Kilmarnock haven’t really been able to pick it up through the pre-season and they now travel to Connah’s Quay for their Europa League Qualifiers looking to bounce from a two-match winless streak, where they were held off by Gaz Metan Mediaş (0-0) and beaten by Dinamo Bucuresti (3-0).
Killie have been rock-solid at the back beforehand and will now surely want to replicate such displays rather than the preseason, having kept three clean sheets in the last five games and with a lot to build on at Corbett Sports Stadium just as well. We thus expect a tough defensive challenge on the day, which will have Connah’s Quay in a tough spot.
Connah’s Quay have, on the other hand, beat Cliftonville (1-0) and held Aberdeen (0-0) to two draws in late June and we’ll now surely see them very motivated to impress once again – despite another tough quest looming and overwhelming goalscoring struggles of recent.
Sky Blues have struggled for consistency and saw a 0-1 win over Hearts late last term, building on it with a look on to Gaz Metan Mediaş (0-0) draw and only seeing the streak ended by Dinamo Bucuresti (3-0) on Wednesday. They will now want to capitalize but Kilmarnock could be too much on their hands.
We will thus stick with Kilmarnock to bag an advantage and going for them to win to Nil at 11/10 with bet365 feels like great value – as Connah’s just struggle to score goals on the regular and found it costly already.
We have seen Connah’s putting on such defensive displays lately too and while we don’t see them coming away with anything from the fixture, it does feel they could prove a tough nut to crack. We’ll thus also go for few goals and back Under 2.5 Goals FT at 13/10 with bet365.
