JD Cymru Premier weekend preview

Barry Vs Carmarthen Away36

Barry Town and Cardiff Met could go clear at the top of the table.

Saturday, 7 September

Aberystwyth v Airbus UK | Saturday – 14:30
After losing their opening four fixtures Airbus will be determined not to leave Park Avenue empty handed this Saturday.

Despite a record defeat at the hands of TNS in their last home game (1-10), Aberystwyth start the weekend in the top half after winning half their games this season.

Airbus were the winners in the last meeting between the sides, knocking Aberystwyth out of the Nathaniel MG Cup in the second round back in October 2017 (Aber 1-2 Air).

League record:
Aberystwyth: ✅❌❌✅
Airbus UK: ❌❌❌❌

Carmarthen v Cardiff Met | Saturday – 14:30
Cardiff Met are level on points with Barry Town with three wins and one draw from their opening four games making this their best ever start to a season in the Cymru Premier.

The Old Gold on the other hand only have one point to their name following defeats against Aberystwyth, Newtown and Barry Town and an away draw at Connah’s Quay.

The last three meetings between these sides have been closely fought affairs with neither side managing to score more than one goal per game (Met 1-0 Carm / Carm 1-0 Met / Met 1-1 Carm)

League record:
Carmarthen: ❌❌➖❌
Cardiff Met: ➖✅✅✅

Pen-y-bont v Bala Town | Saturday – 14:30
Pen-y-bont were once again disappointed with their result last weekend after another hearty display against the champions.

Rhys Griffiths’ side have scored in each of their four league games to date but have only picked up one point in the top flight.

Bala Town fell down from the summit after their loss against Connah’s Quay last Friday night, but it’s been a solid start from the Lakesiders this season.

League record:
Pen-y-bont: ❌❌➖❌
Bala Town: ✅✅➖❌

Barry Town v Caernarfon | Saturday – 14:30
Barry Town start the weekend at the top of the table, level on points and goal difference with Cardiff Met.

There were wild celebrations from the Cofi Army at the Airfield on Friday night as Caernarfon secured their first win of the season (Air 2-3 Cfon).

Barry Town won three of their four games against Caernarfon last season.

League record:
Barry Town: ✅✅➖✅
Caernarfon: ❌➖➖✅

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