Get your football fix with a full set of fixtures in the Cymru Premier this Boxing Day.

Thursday, 26 December

Carmarthen v Pen-y-bont | Thursday – 14:30
The bottom two go head-to-head twice over the Christmas period in what could be two vital fixtures in the battle to avoid relegation.

The clubs haven’t met in a competitive match since Pen-y-bont beat Carmarthen in the League Cup over five years ago (Carm 2-3 Pen a.e.t).

The Old Gold are yet to win at home this season, and have failed to score in their last five matches, but a win on Thursday would lift Carmarthen above Pen-y-bont and off the bottom of the table.

Connah’s Quay v Airbus UK | Thursday – 14:30
Connah’s Quay are only one point behind The New Saints following their 2-1 win over Bala Town last Friday night.

Airbus brought their run of seven consecutive defeats to an end as they drew 1-1 with Cefn Druids last Saturday.

The Nomads have won their last seven meetings with Airbus, including a 5-1 victory in the Nathaniel MG Cup earlier this season.

Cefn Druids v The New Saints | Thursday – 14:30
Cefn Druids face a tough double header over Christmas, especially as the Saints will be looking to bounce back after their defeat against Cardiff Met last weekend.

Huw Griffiths’ side have only lost one of their last 10 games, but only one point separates the Druids and Newtown in the race for the Top Six.

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

Newtown v Aberystwyth | Thursday – 14:30
Four games to go until the split and Newtown are within a point of the Top Six after winning three consecutive league games.

Aberystwyth remain dangerously close to the relegation zone following four defeats in their last five league games.

The Robins won both fixtures against Aberystwyth last Christmas.

Barry Town v Cardiff Met | Thursday – 14:30
Cardiff Met are certainly still in the race for the Top Six as they are only four points behind the Druids after a fantastic win at Park Hall on Friday night.

Barry’s title challenge has taken a hit after six defeats in eight games, but the Dragons were celebrating after 1-0 away win at Aberystwyth last weekend.

Despite not having much travelling to do, the away side seem to struggle in this fixture – the home team have won the last five meetings between the sides.

Barry Town: ❌✅❌❌✅
Cardiff Met: ✅❌❌❌✅

Caernarfon v Bala Town | Thursday – 17:15 (S4C)
Caernarfon are still unbeaten at home in the Cymru Premier this season, and have won their last seven league games at the Oval.

Bala are only three points behind table toppers TNS, but a defeat at the Oval could see the Lakesiders drop as low as 5th place.

Highlights of the weekend’s matches will be on Sgorio every Monday at 5:30 on S4C.
