Halfway through the WPL season and the race to reach the Top Six is heating up.
Prestatyn v Cefn Druids | Tuesday – 19:45
Both teams will want to put last weekend’s disappointing results behind them after defeats at the hands of Aberystwyth and Bangor respectively.
Prestatyn are now three points off safety after an embarrassing 7-1 loss at Aberystwyth wich equals their heaviest defeat ever in the WPL – 6-0 vs TNS (11/10/14), 1-7 vs TNS (20/04/13).
Cefn Druids are holding on to a place in the Top Six, despite losing their last two league matches.
This will be the 10th WPL meeting between the two sides who have an equal head-to-head record to date – three wins each and three draws.
Cefn Druids 2-2 Prestatyn (15/09/17)
The New Saints v Connah’s Quay | Tuesday – 19:45
Halfway through the season and it’s tighter at the top than it has been for years but the Saints could move away from the pack if they take advantage of their games in hand.
Andy Morrison’s men will feel confident after knocking five past Aberystwyth in their last outing.
Due to postponements, TNS have not played a game since their Welsh Cup fixture against Penrhyncoch on December 1st, but will the rest have been beneficial or a hinderance in their surge for the title.
Connah’s Quay haven’t scored a WPL goal at Park Hall since December 2012, and have not won away against TNS in the league in 22 years, since October 1995.
A win for TNS would secure their place in the Top Six.
Connah’s Quay 0-1 The New Saints (20/11/17) League Cup Semi Final
Connah’s Quay 2-2 The New Saints (10/10/17)
Llandudno v Cardiff Met | Wednesday – 19:45 (Facebook Live)
Llandudno welcome Cardiff Met to Parc Maesdu on Wednesday as the Conwy based Seasiders look to keep their Top Six hopes alive.
With only one win from five league games since taking charge, Iwan Williams will expect a positive reaction from his players following a disappointing defeat at Latham Park last Thursday.
Last Saturday, Cardiff Met lost at home for the first time this season (Met 1-2 Bala), but with 30 points on the board, Christian Edwards’ side look pretty certain of reaching the Top Six for the second year running.
The clubs have only met three times in the WPL (Met won 2, drawn 1), so Llandudno are in search of their first ever win against the students.
Cardiff Met 1-0 Llandudno (08/10/17)
On this day in 1981 Swansea beat Chelsea 3-0 at the Vetch thanks to goals from Neil Robinson, Jimmy Hadziabdic and Robbie James.
