Cymru Premier Preview – September 30

Penybont will get the chance to close the gap on second placed Connah’s Quay Nomads to a single point if they can make it four wins in a row in the Indigo Premiership on Saturday at Deeside Stadium.

Having overcome their early September blip, when Huw Griffiths side lost back-to-back games to Bala Town and Colwyn Bay, they have scraped through by the odd goal in their last three outings to climb to third.

Chris Venables came up with a much-needed 20th minute winner at home against Barry Town United in their 1-0 win earlier in the week.

The 38-year-old striker now has eight goals in 11 games in all competitions since joining in the summer from Bala Town.

Penybont’s long trek north to face the Nomads will be a real test of their European credentials as they face a home team unbeaten on their own patch and now boasting a run of six successive victories following their 2-1 home triumph over Colwyn Bay on Tuesday night.

Jordan Davies and Calum Bratley got the goals that earned victory for the Nomads against the Seagulls. The visitors sandwiched a goal of their own in between from Udoyen Akpan 

Two goals in the space of five minutes in the second half allowed The New Saints to hit back from going a goal down inside six minutes at Caernarfon Town.

Adam Davies’ early strike for the Cofis gave them a 1-0 interval lead before Ben Clark and Jordan Williams doubled up in the 58th and 63rd minutes to edge the champions ahead.

Ryan Brobbel then made things safe with a third, and his fifth in the last three games, to maintain the champions’ unbeaten start.

The Saints host Pontypridd United on Saturday, while Caernarfon head south to Jenner Park to meet Barry Town United.

Ponty haven’t won a league game since the start of the month, but have proved difficult to beat throughout the season despite having failed to score in seven of their nine matches.

Louis Robles broke the deadlock in the 80th minute for Newtown at USW Park to earn three points for the Robins, although they had to play out the final 10 minutes with 10 men after losing Callum Roberts to a second yellow card.

Barry Town have only one win to date since rejoining the top-flight as JD Cymru South champions and will be hoping to end the month on a high with a win over Caernarfon.

Lewis Rees went from hero to villain in the space of four minutes at the end of Cardiff Met’s home clash with Haverfordwest County in midweek.

Now, he will be hoping to make up for that miss when the Archers return to Colwyn Bay, where they were bundled out of the JD Cymru Welsh Cup last season.

Rees levelled things up in the 88th minute after the Bluebirds had gone ahead with a Kai Whitmore penalty early in the second half.

Then he had a chance to win the game in the second added minute at the end of a very even contest, but missed from the penalty spot.

Aberystwyth Town finally notched their first win of the season with a notable 1-0 win at Bala Town on Wednesday night.

John Owen was the matchwinner with his 31st minute effort and his goal ended a run of seven league defeats in eight games.

The Seasiders head to Haverfordwest County on Saturday, while Bala Town will be hoping to avoid three defeats in the space of a week after back-to-back losses to Barry Town Untied and Aberystwyth Town when they head to Newtown. 

They have dropped to sixth in the table.
