The Welsh Premier League champions travel to Maes Tegid to face Colin Caton’s Bala Town this Saturday, coverage live on S4C from 17:00.
Bala Town v The New Saints | Saturday – 17:30 (S4C)
The New Saints are back on top of the WPL table following a run of six consecutive wins in all competitions.
The champions have scored 14 goals in their last three outings and have recently booked a place in the League Cup final, the Welsh Cup 4th round and have opened a bit of a gap at the top of the table.
Bala Town have lost their way in recent weeks, losing their last two matches, conceding nine goals without scoring once (Ban 5-0 Bala, Aber 4-0 Bala).
The Welsh Cup holders crashed out of the competition last weekend, and will need to re-group quickly to avoid another thumping this Saturday.
The New Saints 3-0 Bala Town (19/08/17)
On this day in 1961 one of the legends of Welsh football - Ian Rush - was born.
