Carmarthen Town preview

The New Saints will take on Carmarthen Town tomorrow at Richmond Park.


Nicknamed the Old Gold, Carmarthen recently visited Park Hall stadium and were defeated 6-0. During that game, Sam Finley recorded a magnificent four minute hat-trick which added to goals from Matty Williams, Chris Jones and Greg Draper to ensure an emphatic victory.


Mark Aizlewood’s men currently sit in third position in the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League and will face a Saints side which has won their last three league games.


Craig Harrison has an injury doubt over Ryan Fraughan but once again the influential duo of Steve Evans and Scott Ruscoe will definitely miss the game.


The former Middlesbrough defender is determined to keep the run going and said, ‘It will be a tough game against them tomorrow. They are a very competitive team.’


Carmarthen were founded in 1948 and play their home games at Richmond Park. They were also the winners of the Word Cup last season after a dramatic penalty shoot out win against The New Saints.


Carmarthen’s record league defeat came at the hands of The Saints when an inspired TNS side won 8-0 back in March 2009.


The referee for the game will be Mr Brian James.


The match will kick off at 14:30pm.
