Only three weeks left until the league split and the race for the Top Six is incredibly tight with Haverfordwest County and Caernarfon Town level on points in the 6th and 7th position. 

Saturday, 20 March 

Aberystwyth Town (10th) v Newtown (8th) | Saturday – 14:30 

Newtown have been revitalised since the restart, climbing out of the relegation zone and into 8th place with wins against Pen-y-bont, Cefn Druids and Cardiff Met. 

The Robins are certainly not out of the running for a Top Six finish as they’re only six points behind Haverfordwest County and Caernarfon Town with three games left to play before the split. 

Aberystwyth Town will definitely be competing in the bottom half of the table, and avoiding relegation will be their main priority for the remainder of the season. 

Newtown are unbeaten in their last five meetings with their mid-Wales rivals (won three, drawn two).

Connah’s Quay (1st) v Haverfordwest County (6th) | Saturday – 14:30 

After 12 games without defeat, Connah’s Quay will expect nothing less than three points against Haverfordwest County on Saturday to open up a six point lead at the summit. 

But the Bluebirds will be bursting with confidence following their impressive 2-1 victory against The New Saints last weekend. 

The Nomads have won their last four games against Haverfordwest County, and the current Welsh champions have gone two years without losing a league match at the Deeside Stadium (25 games – won 20, drawn 5).

Cardiff Met (9th) v Cefn Druids (12th) | Saturday – 14:30 

The Archers and the Druids have been struggling of late, and both teams are currently on a dreary run of five consecutive defeats. 

Cardiff Met have the worst attacking record in the league (scored 15 goals in 19 games), while the Druids have the worst defensive record (conceded 50 goals in 20 games). 

Managerless Cefn Druids remain bottom of the table, but a win for the Ancients at the capital would leave them within a point of Cardiff Met.

Cardiff Met: ❌❌❌❌❌ 

Cefn Druids: ❌❌❌ 


Pen-y-bont (4th) v Flint Town United (11th) | Saturday – 14:30 

Pen-y-bont are five points clear of 7th placed Caernarfon Town, and Rhys Griffiths’ side, who finished 10th last season, will be eager to secure their place in the top half this Saturday. 

Flint Town United are in trouble, level on points with the Druids at the foot of the table after losing seven of their last eight matches. 

Only two weeks have gone past since the reverse fixture where Nathan Wood netted the only goal of the game for Pen-y-bont in the first ever meeting between these two clubs.

Pen-y-bont: ❌❌✅➖ 

Flint Town United: ❌✅❌❌❌ 


Bala Town (3rd) v Caernarfon Town (7th) | Saturday – 14:30 (S4C) 

Bala Town’s remarkable run of 14 games without a loss came to an end on Tuesday night as Colin Caton’s side fell to a disappointing 3-1 defeat at home to Connah’s Quay. 

Caernarfon Town are enjoying a spell of six games without defeat, but the Cofis remain in the bottom half on goal difference. 

Caernarfon Town have failed to win any of their previous five meetings with Bala Town (lost four, drawn 1), but the Canaries need a positive result on Saturday to keep the pressure on Haverfordwest County and Barry Town United in the race for the Top Six. 

Form guide:    

Bala Town: ✅✅➖ 

Caernarfon Town: ✅✅➖➖✅ 


Highlights of all games will be on Sgorio every Monday at 17:30.
