Danger Man

Aaron Williams - With twenty-six goals in all competitions last season, there's no doubt of Williams being the danger man for the visitors, as he competed at the top of the goal scoring charts last season, eventually coming seven goals short to high flying Declan McManus of TNS. Despite not scoring in any of the four appearances he's made against the Town, Williams will look to get off and running on Friday evening, as his team also look for their first three points and goals of the season.


Previous Meetings

The Lakesiders have a pretty good record against the Robins, with no defeats in nine matches in all competitions, with the last defeat coming in September 2019 as Newtown clinched a 1-0 win with an 84th minute goal. Last season saw a flawless sweep of victories against Newtown, as a 2-0 and 1-0 victory saw us to the double over our European Qualification rivals, with Chris Venables netting a crucial bicycle kick in the latter victory; helping the Town close in on European football once again.
