Carmarthen Town Preview

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

The Saints recently beat Carmarthen in the FAW Welsh Cup. Goals from Mike Wilde and Ryan Fraughan secured a spot in the Welsh Cup Quarter Final for Craig Harrison’s men.

Earlier on in the season, The Saints thrashed Carmarthen 6-0 after Sam Finley recorded a magnificent four minute hat-trick, which added to goals from Matty Williams, Chris Jones and Greg Draper, ensuring an emphatic victory.

Mark Aizlewood’s men currently sit in sixth position in the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League.

Harrison will be without Alex Darlington, after he suffered a metatarsal injury last weekend and will also be without Steve Evans, Ryan Fraughan and Scott Ruscoe.

Despite the injury list, the former Middlesbrough defender is confident of getting a good result and said, ‘We have got a few injuries but we have a big enough squad to cope with it. Alex unfortunately picked up a bad injury against Bangor and he might be out for the rest of the season. We have been in good form of late and we need to keep on working hard to ensure that we stay on top. We need to remain focused and make sure that we don’t become complacent.’

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. Aizlewood’s side also triumphed in the Word Cup this season.

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.
