A full set of JD Cymru Premier fixtures will go ahead on Tuesday night as Connah’s Quay make the trip to the Oval while the bottom two go head-to-head at Park Avenue. 



Tuesday, 27 September 


Caernarfon Town (3rd) v Connah’s Quay (4th) | Tuesday – 19:45 (S4C online) 


Following the disappointment of conceding in the dying seconds against Clyde in the Scottish Challenge Cup, Caernarfon Town will be glad of the opportunity to bounce back in the league on Tuesday. 


But it will be a tough ask for the Cofis who are without a win in their last nine meetings with Connah’s Quay (lost seven, drawn two). 


Nevertheless, Caernarfon Town will be confident having won all four of their league games at home this season, while the Nomads have lost all three of their away matches. 


Only TNS (14) have scored more than Caernarfon Town (13) this season, while Pontypridd United (3) are the only team to score fewer goals than Connah’s Quay (7). 


League form:
Caernarfon Town: ✅✅❌✅✅
Connah’s Quay: ✅❌✅✅❌




Haverfordwest County (8th) v Cardiff Met (5th) | Tuesday – 19:45  

After a strong start to the season, Haverfordwest County have now gone five games without a victory in all competitions and are currently only two points above the relegation zone. 

Cardiff Met have also come undone and have dropped from second place to fifth following two consecutive league defeats. 

But the Archers have an impressive record against Haverfordwest County as the Met have lost just one of their seven previous meetings with the Bluebirds (won five, drawn one). 


League form:
Haverfordwest County: ➖❌❌❌✅
Cardiff Met: ❌❌✅✅❌

Pen-y-bont (2nd) v Pontypridd United (10th) | Tuesday – 19:45  


Pen-y-bont are presently the best-of-the-rest in the JD Cymru Premier as Rhys Griffiths’ side sit in second place with five wins from seven so far this season. 


Pontypridd United on the other hand have lost five from season and are yet to score an away goal since their promotion to the top flight. 


These two teams haven’t met since the 2018/19 season where Pen-y-bont won both fixtures against Pontypridd United in the JD Cymru Suoth. 


League form:
Pen-y-bont: ✅✅❌✅✅
Pontypridd United: ❌✅❌❌✅


Newtown (9th) v Bala Town (6th) | Tuesday – 19:45  

Newtown became the first team to drop points against Airbus as they shared the spoils in an eight-goal thriller on Friday night (Air 4-4 New). 


After winning a European tie over the summer there were high expectations for Newtown this season, but with just two wins from their opening seven league games the Robins are lingering a little too close to the bottom two. 


Bala Town have been somewhat of a bogey team for Newtown recently as the Lakesiders are unbeaten in their last ten meetings (won nine, drawn one), and Colin Caton’s crew haven’t conceded in their four matches against the Robins since the start of the year, including the 3-0 win at Maes Tegid earlier this season. 


League form:
Newtown: ➖❌✅✅❌
Bala Town: ✅➖✅❌✅


The New Saints (1st) v Flint Town United (7th) | Tuesday – 19:45  


Measurement issues with Flint Town United’s newly laid 4G pitch has meant that this game has had to be reversed from Cae-y-Castell to Park Hall. 


The New Saints have only conceded one goal in six league outings this season, but a poor display against Dundee in the Scottish Challenge Cup on Friday night will mean that Craig Harrison will demand an improved performance. 


Flint Town United have a horrendous record against The New Saints since their promotion (drawn one, lost five) which includes some serious hammerings in the last two years (TNS 10-0 Flint, Flint 0-6 TNS, TNS 7-0 Flint). 


League form:
The New Saints: ✅✅✅✅✅
Flint Town United: ➖➖❌✅❌



Aberystwyth Town (11th) v Airbus UK (12th) | Tuesday – 20:00 


Almost five years since his appointment as Airbus manager, Steve O’Shaughnessy has been relieved of his duties, despite picking up his first point of the season against Newtown on Friday. 


While the Wingmakers look for a permanent replacement, assistant-manager Mark Allen will step up into the hot seat and his first task is to prepare the team for a vital clash against fellow relegation contenders, Aberystwyth Town.  


The Seasiders have won their last three meetings with Airbus UK, which includes their 2-1 win at the Hollingsworth Group Stadium on the opening night of the season. 


League form:
Aberystwyth Town: ❌✅❌❌❌
Airbus UK: ➖❌❌❌❌



Highlights will be available on Sgorio’s social media accounts.
