Tuesday night fixtures in the WPL

gemau midweek

A full set of fixtures in the Welsh Premier League this Tuesday night.

Tuesday – 19:45

Carmarthen v Aberystwyth
Aberystwyth are down to 11th spot after losing four league games on the trot, and failing to score in their last three matches in the WPL.

Matthew Bishop will have to get the Black & greens back on track after they’ve conceded 14 goals in their last four league games (3.5 goals a game).

It’s less than two weeks since the teams last met at Latham Park where Carmarthen won comfortably thanks to goals from Kieran Lewis and Liam Thomas following Will Bell’s own goal in the after ten minutes.

Mark Aizlewood will be hoping to continue the Old Gold’s good form against Aberystwyth as they aim for their fifth win on the bounce against the Ceredigion outfit.

Last meeting:
Aberystwyth 0-3 Carmarthen (10/09/16)

Cefn Druids v Airbus UK | Park Hall, Oswestry
Following six defeats on the bounce, Andy Thomas breathed a sigh of relief as his side won 3-2 against Cefn Druids on Sunday.

But it wasn’t easy for Airbus who had a nervy end to the game as the Druids notched two late goals but couldn’t get the equaliser at the Airfield.

It was Airbus’ first win since the opening weekend of the season and their first win over Cefn Druids since April 2009.

Both teams are now level on points in 9th and 10th position as they prepare to face each other for the second time in three days.

Last meeting:
Airbus UK 3-2 Cefn Druids (18/09/16)

gap Connah’s Quay v Llandudno
After three consecutive clean sheets in the WPL Llandudno finally conceded from the penalty spot against Cardiff Met on Saturday which proved to be the only goal of the game at Maesdu Park.

Llandudno have only won two from seven league games this season as last year’s WPL Player of the Season, Marc Williams is yet to find the net this term.

gap Connah’s Quay stay in 2nd spot after a 4-0 thrashing of Aberystwyth on Sunday made sure that they remain unbeaten this season.

It will be the Nomads’ second of a run of six successive league fixtures at home and they will be hoping that home advantage will help them to keep the pressure on league leaders, The New Saints.

Last meeting:
Llandudno 1-2 gap Connah’s Quay (26/03/16)

Cardiff Met v Newtown
Cardiff Met are off the mark as they recorded their first ever win in the top flight at the seventh attempt after a 0-1 away win at Llandudno over the weekend thanks to a Kyle McCarthy penalty.

Met remain at the bottom of the table but only the top two can boast o better defensive record than the students who have conceded seven goals in seven games but have only scored three times.

Newtown will feel that they threw away two points after being 3-1 up against Rhyl but could only manage a draw.

With only one win each for both teams so far this season, both managers will be desperate for three points at the Cyncoed Campus.

Bala Town v The New Saints | Cae-y-Castell, Flint
Bala will be looking to bounce back from their 5-1 defeat on Saturday as they prepare to face the champions for the second time in four days.

TNS scored twice from the spot and twice from corners to help them on their way to their seventh victory in seven games, continuing their 100% record in the WPL this season.

The Saints’ five goals means that they have now scored 32 goals this season (4.6 goals a game).

Bala Town hope that playing at Cae-y-Castell will give them a psychological advantage as it is the ground where they won 1-5 against Flint Town Utd in the Nathaniel MG Cup earlier this season.

The Lakesiders are now 12 points behind TNS and although a first ever win against the champions seems unlikely, it could be the spark that they need to kick start their season.

Last meeting:
The New Saints 5-1 Bala Town (17/09/16)

Rhyl v Bangor City
One of the more eagerly awaited WPL fixtures will take place at the Corbett Sports Stadium as the north Wales rivals go head to head for the first time this season.

Both teams have had good starts to the season and are in 3rd and 4th position in the league table.

There were some classic games between the two sides last season, with Bangor coming from behind to win 4-3 on two separate occasions in 2015/16.

The Lilywhites hope to continue their run of five games without defeat in all competitions, while the Citizens are still looking for their first away win of the season in the WPL.

Last meeting:
Rhyl 3-4 Bangor City (19/03/16)

Highlights of all six games will be on the Sgorio website on Wednesday night.
