Following a fantastic win against The New Saints last Tuesday, Aberystwyth Town will be looking to climb out of the relegation zone this weekend, while Bala Town and Connah’s Quay hope to hold on to their Top Six spots.

Cardiff Met (10th) v Aberystwyth Town (11th) | Friday – 19:45 

Things were looking bleak for Aberystwyth Town last week, but an unexpected victory against The New Saints has given the Black & Greens a well-needed boost, and another three-points this weekend would lift Antonio Corbisiero’s side out of the relegation zone and right into the race for the Top Six. 

Three consecutive defeats against The New Saints, Caernarfon Town and Pen-y-bont has seen Cardiff Met drop from 5th place down to 10th position and is proof of how quickly the picture can change in the JD Cymru Premier. 

Cardiff Met have already beaten Aberystwyth Town in the league and in the Nathaniel MG Cup this season, and the students are unbeaten in their last seven meetings with the Ceredigion crew (won 5, drawn 2).

Bala Town (6th) v Flint Town United (2nd) | Friday – 19:45 

Bala Town have gone six league games without a win for the first time since January 2019, and the Lakesiders are now in danger of dropping into the bottom half of the table. 

While Bala Town haven’t won in six, Flint Town United haven’t lost in six, and Neil Gibson’s gang are proving that they’re real contenders for a European place this season. 

Colin Caton’s men have won their last four games against Flint Town United but needed a 91st minute strike from David Edwards to claim the points in the reverse fixture last month (Flint 1-2 Bala).

The New Saints (1st) v Newtown (3rd) | Friday – 19:45 

The New Saints have had to wait 10 days since their first defeat of the season to try and make things right, and Anthony Limbrick will be determined to see his team bounce back this Friday. 

The Oswestry outfit had gone on an incredible run of 17 league games without defeat before falling short at Aberystwyth Town last Tuesday (won 13, drawn 4).  

Despite the set-back, The New Saints remain six points clear at the summit and are in a strong position to reclaim the championship after two trophyless seasons. 

This time last year, Newtown were down in 10th place with only 10 points after winning just two of their opening 13 league fixtures. 

But the Robins are flying high this season and are sitting pretty in 3rd with 23 points after losing just one of their last seven league games (won 5, drawn 1). 

Two of the league’s top scorers will be going head-to-head at Park Hall as Declan McManus of The New Saints (12 goals) and Aaron Williams of Newtown (11 goals) hope to add to their tallies in the hunt for the Golden Boot. 

The New Saints have won their last four meetings with Newtown, including their opening game of the league season where McManus and Williams netted their first JD Cymru Premier goals (New 1-4 TNS).

Saturday, 20 November 

Connah’s Quay (5th) v Pen-y-bont (4th) | Saturday – 14:30 

It looks like Connah’s Quay’s problematic patch is finally behind them as the Nomads are now on a run of six games without defeat in all competitions (won 5, draw 1 – scored 16, conceded 1). 

Pen-y-bont have also turned the corner after a slow start, and Rhys Griffiths’ clan have now won five of their last six matches in all competitions. 

Pen-y-bont were the only side to win away at the Deeside Stadium last season, which was Connah’s Quay’s first league defeat at home in two years. 

League form: 

Connah’s Quay: ❌➖✅✅✅ 

Pen-y-bont: ✅✅✅❌✅ 


Haverfordwest County (9th) v Caernarfon Town (7th) | Saturday – 14:30 

After losing five of their last six outings, Caernarfon Town have drifted down into the bottom half, but Huw Griffiths’ Cofis will believe they can climb back up into the Top Six this Saturday. 

Haverfordwest County are also eyeing a place in the top half as they go into the weekend only three points behind 6th placed Bala Town. 

Caernarfon Town haven’t won away at Haverfordwest County since 1998, but eight of the 10 meetings between the sides at Bridge Meadow since then have ended in draws. 

League form: 

Haverfordwest County: ❌✅✅❌➖ 

Caernarfon Town: ❌❌❌✅❌ 


Barry Town United (8th) v Cefn Druids (12th) | Saturday – 14:30 

With just two points from their last 22 league games, Cefn Druids are in deep trouble at the bottom of the table. 

But one of those points came in their last game as they managed to secure a draw with 2nd placed  

Flint Town United, and with 19 league games left to play there is still plenty of time for Cefn Druids to turn their season around. 

Barry Town United have only won one of their last eight league matches, but Gavin Chesterfield will be confident that his team can be triumphant on Saturday as the Dragons have won seven of their last eight meetings with the Ancients. 

League form: 

Barry Town United: ❌➖✅➖➖ 

Cefn Druids: ❌❌❌❌➖ 


Highlights of all games will be available on Sgorio’s online accounts.
