Match Preview: Bala Town vs Aberystwyth Town

The Lakesiders welcome Aberystwyth Town to Maes Tegid this evening, despite Storm Agnes promising to cause havoc throughout the evening!

The Town come into this evening's game with the aim of bouncing back from a winless run of four matches in domestic competitions, having been dumped out of the Nathaniel MG Cup by Guilsfield and being defeated on the road by Barry Town in our last outing.

On the other hand, Aberystwyth Town are still in search of their first three points of the season and are routed to the bottom of the table with just the singular point. Their last outing was against Penybont, and despite grabbing a late goal, it would be the Bont who took all three points.

Danger Man

Iwan Lewis: The 30 year old is Aberystwyth's top scorer so far this season, playing from a Midfield position. Lewis has been a consistent player for Aber, playing 90 minute in every single game so far this season, and was involved in every league game last season for the Seasiders, as he played a vital role in securing his side's safety from relegation. Lewis will look to be the spark for Aber this evening, as they search for their first three points of the season.

Previous Meetings

The Lakesiders are without victory in the past 15 fixtures between the two sides, with the last victory coming in a 3-1 victory at Maes Tegid in 2019, when goals from Chris Venables and Louis Robles wrapped up a superb victory against the Saints. The most recent meeting saw the Lakesiders face a demoralising defeat in the JD Welsh Cup Final, as the Saints ran out 6-0 winners on the day, with five of the goals coming in the second half.
