Connah’s Quay secured a vital win against The New Saints on Saturday, but Scott Ruscoe’s side have a chance to regain their three–point lead on Tuesday night, while the bottom two will battle it out at Cae-y-Castell.

Aberystwyth Town v Caernarfon Town | Tuesday – 19:45
Aberystwyth Town have lost their last four games and are now only a point above the relegation zone after winning only two of their 14 games this season.
The Cofis have reacted well to their recent 6-0 thumping at Pen-y-bont by winning their last two matches to climb back into the top half.
The Seasiders haven’t won at home against Caernarfon since 2008, but Gavin Allen’s men need to start picking up points quickly if they are to avoid a relegation scrap.
Aberystwyth Town: ➖❌❌❌❌
Caernarfon Town: ❌➖❌✅✅
Flint Town United v Cefn Druids | Tuesday – 19:45
Neil Gibson has had to wait patiently for his first game in charge of Flint Town United, as their scheduled match at Pen-y-bont was postponed over the weekend.
But the new manager couldn’t have asked for a tastier fixture to start his spell with the Silkmen as the bottom two, who are level on points, will go head-to-head in a crucial game at Cae-y-Castell on Tuesday night.
Flint have lost 11 out of 14 games this season, but Gibson will be confident of his ability to pull his side out of the drop zone as he will have already built a strong a relationship with several members of his squad following his spells with Prestatyn Town and Connah’s Quay.
Cefn Druids will feel galavanized after their fantastic 4-1 win against Haverfordwest on Friday – their first league win at home in 2020.
Flint Town United were the winners in the reverse fixture as Richie Foulkes and Mark Cadwallader grabbed the goals at The Rock back in September (Cefn 1-2 Flint).

Newtown v The New Saints | Tuesday – 19:45
The New Saints will be keen to bounce back after suffering their first defeat of the season on Saturday at the home of the champions, Connah’s Quay (2-0).
Newtown will also be eager to get going following a spell of self-isolating which has left the Robins only one point from the bottom of the table.
Chris Hughes won his first match against The New Saints as Newtown manager back on Boxing Day 2013, but since that victory the Robins have failed to win any of their last 11 home games against the Saints.
The New Saints: ✅✅✅✅❌
Pen-y-bont v Cardiff Met | Tuesday – 19:45 (Facebook Live)
Pen-y-bont are sitting comfortably in 5th place with games in hand after only losing to the top three this season (TNS, Connah’s Quay, Bala Town).
Cardiff Met have the worst attacking record in the league (13 goals in 15 games), but a win on Tuesday would lift the students above their opponents.
Pen-y-bont failed to win any of their first nine games against Cardiff Met, but Rhys Griffiths’ men have won the last two meetings between the sides without conceding a goal.
Cardiff Met: ❌✅✅➖❌

Haverfordwest County v Barry Town United | Wednesday – 19:45
With only one win in their last eight games, Barry Town United’s place in the top half is certainly not secure.
A heavy defeat against the Druids on Saturday saw Haverfordwest drop down into 7th position, and Wayne Jones will expect a reaction from his Bluebirds on Wednesday night.
Haverfordwest County haven’t lost at home against Barry since their extra time defeat in the Welsh Cup second round back in 2011.
Haverfordwest County: ❌✅✅➖❌
Barry Town United: ❌➖❌✅❌
Highlights will be on Mwy o Sgorio at 9:40 on Wednesday night.
