FOLLOWING NEWTOWN’s win over Penybont on Tuesday, the ten remaining Welsh Premier clubs will get back to action this Saturday, March 6, for the first time since December.
TNS lead defending champions Connah’s Quay Nomads by three points but there is still still plenty of football to play.
TNS V BALA TOWN
The league leaders take on third placed Bala Town in what will be a key clash. The game kicks off at 5pm and will be shown live on S4C.
The sides had met at the end of September but a floodlight failure with only minutes to go with the score at 2-2 forced the game to be abandoned.
It was played again five weeks later and the outcome was the same as the sides played out a 1-1 draw.
CONNAH’S QUAY NOMADS V NEWTOWN – ko 14:30
Second placed Connah’s Quay Nomads will be looking to close the gap to TNS on Saturday as they host Newtown.
Nomads’ new signings Rio Glean, Tom Moore, Johnny Hunt and Doug Tharme will all be looking to make their first competitive appearance in a Nomads shirt, but the clubs still await international clearance for Neil Danns who signed earlier this week.
Jamie Insall will also be hopeful of returning to competitive action for the first time since the Dinamo Tbilisi match which saw him pick up an injury which has kept him out for the majority of the season.
The two sides are yet to meet in the league this season but they did play a friendly against each other before the season began which the Nomads won.
CEFN DRUIDS V BARRY TOWN UNITED – ko 14:30
Barry Town United travel to second from bottom Cefn Druids on Saturday looking to keep hold of fourth place.
The Town hold a two point lead over their nearest challengers but they come up against a Druids side who will be keen to get themselves out the bottom two, having slipped into eleventh place following Newtown’s win over Penybont on Tuesday.
The two teams played each other in the last match before football was suspended on December 19. It saw Barry Town pick up a 4-1 win over the Druids with Kayne McLaggon scoring twice in that game.
CAERNARFON TOWN V ABERYSTWYTH TOWN – ko 14:30
Caernarfon Town take on bottom side Aberystwyth Town and the home side will be looking to keep their place in the top six as the race to the split begins.
The Canaries secured a 2-1 win over Aber in December and have since added defender Max Cleworth and striker Jake Bickerstaff to their ranks. Both have signed on loan from Wrexham until the end of the season.
Aber are in desperate need of points if they are to get themselves out of the bottom two and they recently welcomed back striker Jamie Reed for his third stint at the club.
FLINT TOWN V PENYBONT – ko 14:30
Flint Town United were busy in the transfer window as they brought in 13 new players to the squad as they look to secure JD Cymru Premier football for next season.
The two sides are yet to play each other this season but both are in need of points as Penybont sit in sixth place while Flint Town sit outside the bottom two on goal difference.
Penybont were beaten on Tuesday and they will be keen to get back to winning ways.
Flint have four wins to their name from their sixteen games and remarkably they are the only side not to have drawn a game this season.
HAVERFORDWEST COUNTY V CARDIFF MET – ko 14:30
A match between the sides that sit seventh and eighth in the table respectively could prove to be a big game for both sides.
County sit a point outside the top six and a win will keep them in the hunt while a win for the Met, who sit four points behind the Bluebirds, will reignite their push up the table.
The sides played each other in the first game of the season in September but it ended in a 0-0 draw.
In January, the Bluebirds extended the loan deals of Danny Williams and Matthew Turner while Trystan Jones and Jack Britton extended their contracts until the end of the season.
