The race for the Top Six is heating up…

Monday, 30 December

Aberystwyth v Newtown | Monday – 19:45
Three games until the split and Newtown are level on points with 6th placed Cefn Druids.

The Robins have been solid in defence over the last couple of weeks and have not conceded in their last five games.

Aber keeper, Connor Roberts was the man of the match at Latham Park on Boxing Day, putting in a fine performance to secure a point for the Black & Greens.

Airbus UK v Connah’s Quay | Monday – 19:45
Connah’s Quay are still within a point of front runners, The New Saints, and are looking to push the champions all the way again this year.

Airbus, on the other hand, are only one point above the relegation zone.

The Nomads have won their last eight meetings with Airbus, including a 2-1 victory at the Deeside Stadium last week.

Cardiff Met v Barry Town | Monday – 19:45
Cardiff Met are certainly still in the race for the Top Six as they are only three points behind the Druids following their 1-1 draw at Jenner Park.

A win for Barry Town on Monday could secure their place in the Top Six.

But the Dragons haven’t won at the Cyncoed Campus since 2006, losing their last four games away at Cardiff Met.

Bala Town v Caernarfon | Monday – 19:45
Bala are still in the hunt for the championship after a dramatic late win at the Oval on Boxing Day.

League top scorer, Chris Venables grabbed a brace as Colin Caton’s side claimed their first Cymru Premier win away at Caernarfon.

The Cofis have a game in hand to play against Pen-y-bont next week, and Sean Eardley’s men are in a good position to secure a place in the top half.

The New Saints v Cefn Druids | Monday – 19:45
Cefn Druids fell to a 0-5 defeat at the hands of the champions on Boxing Day, and must dust themselves off and go again on Monday.

It was the Druids’ first defeat in six games, and they remain in the Top Six on goal difference.

Twelve years have passed since Druids’ last win against The New Saints in the Cymru Premier.

Pen-y-bont v Carmarthen | Wednesday – 14:30
It was a sweet victory for the Old Gold on Boxing Day as they finally won at home for the first time this season and climbed up from the bottom of the table for the first time since September.

Carmarthen were on a run of five games without a goal before scoring three times against Pen-y-bont.

Both teams will be determined to get out of the relegation zone – and a draw could leave Airbus at the bottom if they were to lose against Connah’s Quay.
