Following the disappointment of Park Hall defeat last week against Newtown AFC, this coming Friday (February 14), we travel thirty-plus miles to Bala, as Scott Ruscoe’s side looks to get back on track.
Going into the JD Cymru Premier MD24 fixture, we still lead the way at the top of the table, albeit by just one point. With nine games to go though, including this week’s round of matches, there is still plenty to play for. In fact, mathematically, all six of the Championship Conference sides can win the title at this moment in time.
The New Saints have an impressive record at Maes Tegid, having only been beaten once, which incidentally was earlier this season, when Colin Caton’s side came from behind to win 3-1.
The other sixteen games have resulted in ten victories for the visitors and, of course, six encounters where the points have been shared.
In recent years, fans of both clubs will no doubt remember the ten-goal thriller in April, 2017. There are not many teams who will score four against The New Saints in one go on the domestic front. However, that’s exactly what the Lakesiders did.
As far as they were concerned though, it was all in vain, as the visitors found the net on six occasions to register a 6-4 victory and secure all three points. Scott Quigley, who now plays his football for Barrow AFC, scored a hat-trick.
The kick-off this Friday is 8.00 p.m. and the game is also being shown live on S4C.
The officials are as follows: Dean John (referee), Daniel Beckett and Jordan Christopher (assistant referees) and John Jones (fourth official).
The New Saints will be in the away kit of blue and white and the goalkeeper will be in all red.
