This Saturday, Carmarthen will hope to secure their place in the Top Six for the first time since 2013/14 as they travel to The Rock to face Cefn Druids live on S4C with coverage starting at 17:00.

On the final weekend before the split all six WPL fixtures will kick off at the same time at 17:15 on Saturday afternoon and Carmarthen know that a point should be enough to claim their place in the top half for the rest of the season (unless Llandudno beat Rhyl by 11 goals).

If Carmarthen were to lose and Llandudno were to beat Rhyl, then Llandudno would take their place in the Top Six, so it’s all to play for.

Druids’ manager, Huw Griffiths was clearly thrilled after picking up three points at Park Avenue last weekend to bring an end to Aberystwyth’s hopes of making the top half.

Once again, Cefn Druids will be hoping to spoil the party by denying Carmarthen their place in the security of the Top Six.

But the Old Gold will be favourites as they are unbeaten in their last nine WPL meetings with Cefn Druids (won 8, drawn 1).

Carmarthen had won their last eight WPL meetings with the Druids before their 2-2 draw earlier this season.

February 2008 was the last time Cefn Druids beat Carmarthen in the WPL (3-1) – Karl Connolly with a brace for the Druids, while Danny Thomas netted for the Old Gold.

It promises to be an exciting finish in the race for the Top Six and we will be bringing updates from all the WPL matches as the day develops.

Cefn Druids v Carmarthen – LIVE on S4C this Saturday, 14 January at 17:00.
