Aberystwyth v Cardiff Met | Friday – 19:35 (S4C)
Aberystwyth started strongly with a 1-0 win over Llandudno on the opening weekend.

Declan Walker was the hero once again for the Black & Greens – netting the first WPL goal of the season, and what a goal it was!

Aber keeper, Leigh Jenkins was stretchered off in the second half and Neville Powell has wasted no time bringing in experienced stopper Terry McCormick ready for the Friday night fixture.

Aberystwyth have never beaten Cardiff Met in the WPL and have only scored once in four meetings with the students.

Christian Edwards returns to his old stomping ground hoping that his side can gain momentum from their 2-1 victory against Newtown last weekend.

Cardiff Met are starting their third season in the WPL, and having fallen at the final hurdle in the play-off final in their last two seasons, they’ll certainly be hoping that it will be a case of third time lucky this time around.

There hasn’t been much change in Christian Edwards’ squad as the students will be keen to show that consistency is key as they set their eyes on European qualification.
