Port Talbot preview

 

The New Saints will take on Port Talbot tomorrow in the Corbett Sports Welsh premier League.

 

The Saints are currently top of the WPL and will be hoping to win their sixth game on the bounce.

 

Port Talbot were founded in 1901 and are managed by former Cardiff City man, Scott Young.

 

Nicknamed The Steelmen, the club play their games at the GenQuip Stadium and finished last season finished in an impressive fourth place.

 

During the last encounter between the sides, The Saints won by six goals to nil, thanks to goals from Ryan Fraughan, Mike Wilde, Alex Darlington and an inspired hat-trick from Greg Draper.

 

Both Steve Evans and Scott Ruscoe are still out but Ryan Fraughan and Connell Rawlinson have returned to full fitness and are now available for selection.

 

Craig Harrison is looking forward to travel down to South Wales for the second week in a row and admitted that the home side will pose a threat, ‘Football is not won on paper and they will give us a hard game tomorrow. They have a very strong squad with a good manager and they have got a lot of experience in their side. They but up a battling performance last week so it will be a tough game for us.’

 

However, Harrison is confident of another win and said, ‘I have got a really strong squad here with some really top class players and on our day we can beat anybody. The lads have been fantastic so far and hopefully the return of Ryan and Connell will put a bit of pressure on the players that are currently in the team. We have had another good week of training this week ahead of the game and I am really hopeful that we can keep this run going.’

 

The match will kick off at 14:00pm.
