Match Preview: Bala Town vs Newtown

It's Go Big or Go Home for the Lakesiders this evening, as we take on Newtown for a place in the European Play-Off Final, with European Qualification on the line! Both sides qualified for the Play-Offs through their league position, with the Town finishing in 5th and the Robins finishing in 6th.

The Lakesiders come into tonight's match without a win in 14 competitive matches, having recently been dismantled by The New Saints in the JD Welsh Cup Final. On the other hand, Newtown come into tonight's match after a week's rest after their final league game of the season against Penybont, which ended in a 2-1 defeat for the Robins.

Danger Man

Aaron Williams - The 29 year old leads the goal scoring charts for the Robins, with 14 goals in 32 league appearances, as he also holds on to joint 3rd along with Jordan Davies of Haverfordwest County in the league's top goalscoring chart. Williams’ last goal came in the Cymru Premier Championship Conference against the Lakesiders as Williams netted the first goal for Newtown in a 3-2 win for the Robins, after the Town capitulated in the last three minutes of the match. Once again, should Williams feature this evening, there’s no doubt he will be a big threat.

Previous Meetings

The Lakesiders have had a tricky time against the Robins in recent meetings, having faced defeat in the last two meetings with 3-2 and 2-1 score lines, with late goals coming in both defeats. However, prior to our most recent defeats, the Town were unbeaten in our last 11 against Newtown, having been victorious on 10 occasions and drawing just once.
