The crunch match between Aberystwyth and Rhyl will be shown live on Sgorio’s Facebook page on Friday, 14 April, with kick off at 19:45.

Dylan Ebenezer will be commentating from Park Avenue as Aber and Rhyl go head to head in a real scrap for survival.

It’s quite simple for Aber – a win against the Lilywhites on Friday would relegate Rhyl and ensure their own safety in the top flight.

Rhyl go into the game in 11th place, two points behind Aber and a defeat for them would see Niall McGuinness’ side drop into the Huws Gray Alliance four years after their promotion in 2013.

The Lilywhites were lucky to avoid relegation last season after finishing in the bottom two as 10th placed Port Talbot failed to secure the domestic license and were relegated in their place.

Aberystwyth are one of only three ever-present clubs in the WPL since the first season back in 1992/93 (along with Bangor City and Newtown).

The Black & Greens enjoyed a 4-0 win over Rhyl when they last visited Park Avenue, but both clubs have made big changes since then and from the 28 players that featured in that game back in October, only nine played for Aberystwyth or Rhyl last weekend.

Latest meetings:
Rhyl 2-2 Aberystwyth (03/03/17)
Aberystwyth 4-0 Rhyl (14/10/16)
Rhyl 3-1 Aberystwyth (31/08/16)
