An actionpacked weekend awaits in the JD Cymru Premier.

Bala Town v Newtown | Friday – 19:45 (Facebook Live) 

Newtown will have been pleased to come away with a point from their trip to Jenner Park last weekend, but the Robins will have to put in a bigger shift if they are to avoid defeat against high-flying Bala Town on Friday night. 


The Lakesiders are full of confidence following a run of seven games without defeat (won 5, drawn 2), which is their longest unbeaten stretch since 2016. 


To add to Chris Hughes’ worries, Bala Town have won five of their last six meetings with Newtown and haven’t lost at home to the Robins since April 2015. 


Newtown have only won two games this season with both wins coming against the bottom two sides in the league, Flint Town United and Cefn Druids. 


Chris Venables who hails from Llanidloes near Newtown, will be hoping to add to his tally as the Bala captain currently leads the top scorer chart yet again this season with 12 goals in 11 games.

Connah’s Quay v Barry Town United | Saturday – 13:30 (S4C) 

Connah’s Quay climbed up to second place following their 2-1 win against Cefn Druids last Friday, making it eight wins in 10 games for Andy Morrison’s men. 


Barry Town on the other hand have gone five games without a win, scoring only twice in those five fixtures. 


The Nomads are unbeaten in their last seven meetings with Barry Town (won 3, drawn 4), and haven’t conceded in their last four games against Gavin Chesterfield’s side.

Caernarfon v Haverfordwest County | Saturday – 14:30  

Caaernarfon have been sitting comfortably in the top half since the start of the season but could potentially fall into a false sense of security as they remain in 6th place but only two points above the relegation zone. 


Like the CofisHaverfordwest are without a win in their last four matches, but a victory for the Bluebirds would see them rise above the Canaries. 


Haverfordwest County haven’t lost any of their last 15 meetings with Caernarfon, since their 6-0 thumping at the Oval back in 2002.

Flint Town United v Cardiff Met Saturday – 14:30  

Level on points in the 10th and 11th place, you could call this a real six-pointer at Cae-y-Castell in the race to avoid relegation. 


Niall McGuinness breathed a huge sigh of relief as his Flint side ended their run of seven consecutive defeats with an impressive 0-3 away win at Haverfordwest last Saturday. 


Cardiff Met were the winners in the reverse fixture with Dylan Rees and Ollie Hulbert scoring for the students (Met 2-1 Flint) – their only win since beating Aberystwyth on the opening weekend of the season.

The New Saints v Aberystwyth Saturday – 14:30  

The New Saints start the weekend six points clear at the top of the table and remain unbeaten in the JD Cymru Premier this season. 


The Saints won six games on the bounce at the start of their campaign, and it was Aberystwyth who brought their run to an end with a 2-2 draw at Park Avenue in October, becoming the first team to score against the Oswestry outfit this season.  


Aberystwyth’s last away win against TNS was in 1993 when the club were still playing at Treflanwhich means the Seasiders have never won against the Saints at Park Hall.

Sunday, 29 November 

Pen-y-bont v Cefn Druids | Sunday – 14:30  

Cefn Druids are bottom of the table, five points behind the rest of the pack, but with two games in hand its too soon to panic for Bruno Lopes’ boys. 


Pen-y-bont have been the surprise package this season and have only lost to last season’s top three so far in this campaign (Connah’s Quay, The New Saints and Bala Town). 


Pen-y-bont were the winners in the reverse fixture as goals from Kane Owen and Mael Davies secured a 0-2 away win at The Rock in October.
