In the only WPL fixture of the weekend, a point for Barry Town would be enough to secure 7th spot and would confirm their place in the play-offs.

Saturday, 7 April

Prestatyn v Barry Town | Saturday – 14:30
Both clubs were promoted to the WPL last summer, but while Prestatyn’s fate is sealed in the relegation zone, Barry Town are competing to secure European football this summer.

A week on from their last meeting at Jenner Park where a 2-0 victory for Barry sent Prestatyn down into the Huws Gray Alliance, Gavin Chesterfield’s side are now looking to continue their scintillating run to clinch a play-off spot.

Barry Town are the only team to have won all their league games since the split in the WPL, and the Dragons have gone nine points clear in the race for the play-offs, with a game in hand.

Barry have only conceded three goals in their six games since the split as shot-stopper Mike Lewis has been in fine form keeping three consecutive clean sheets.

Prestatyn on the other hand are on a run of 15 games without a win in all competitions (lost 13, drawn 2) and will be relegated at the end of the season.

But Prestatyn were the winners when Barry last visited the Motion Finance Stadium as Michael Parker’s late strike was enough to claim the three points.

Last meetings:
Barry Town 2-0 Prestatyn (23/12/17)
Barry Town 4-0 Prestatyn (23/12/17)
Prestatyn 1-0 Barry Town (19/08/17)

Highlights of all the weekend fixtures will be on Sgorio this Monday at 5:35 on S4C.
