Friday night fixtures

Street Games

All eyes will be on The New Saints on Friday night as they look to set a new world record for most consecutive victories if they can beat Cefn Druids for the second time in four days to make it 27 wins on the bounce this season.

The New Saints, Bala Town, gap Connah’s Quay and Bangor City have already secured their place in the Top Six, but who will be the other two clubs to join them and ensure a place in this year’s European play-offs?

Cefn Druids v The New Saints | Friday – 19:45
The New Saints go into Friday’s fixture knowing that a win would mean that their club will break the world record of 26 consecutive wins in all competitions which has stood since 1971/72 by Dutch side Ajax.

The New Saints have won all 20 league games this season to open up an emphatic 21 point lead, as well as winning their three League Cup games, their two Irn-Bru cup fixtures and their only game in the Welsh Cup.

And they’ve done it in style, winning half those games by a three goal margin or more (13/26).

Adrian Cieslewicz grabbed a brace when the clubs met on Boxing Day in a 4-0 victory for TNS.

Cefn Druids have only won three out of 19 league games this season (16%) but with a game in hand Huw Griffiths’ side will be hoping to climb out of the relegation zone by the split.

gap Connah’s Quay v Airbus UK | Friday – 19:45
Following 11 league games without a win, things are looking bleak for Airbus who remain bottom of the table four points adrift from the rest of the pack.

The Wingmakers have lost their last eight WPL games and are in danger of slipping down to the Huws Gray Alliance after spending the last 12 seasons in the top flight.

The Nomads are equal on points with Bala Town in the race for second spot with both teams having played 20 – won 11, drawn six and lost three.

Connah’s Quay came out 3-0 winners when the clubs met four days ago with Les Davies scoring twice for the Nomads.

Rhyl v Bala Town | Friday – 19:45
TNS might have equalled a world record but there’s another Welsh club that’s absolutely flying at the moment, and that club is Bala Town who have won their last nine games (8 WPL, 1 Welsh Cup) and are unbeaten in 12 league games (won 9, drawn 3).

It’s a completely different story at Rhyl who are in serious trouble after losing 11 of their last 12 league matches.

Bala eased their way to a 6-1 victory against the Lilywhites on Boxing Day with experienced striker Lee Hunt claiming a first half hat-trick at Maes Tegid.

The suspensions keep on piling up for Niall McGuinness as his side have picked up seven red cards in their last five matches.

Last meeting:
Bala Town 6-1 Rhyl (26/12/16)
