Match Preview: Bala Town vs The New Saints

The two final unbeaten teams in the JD Cymru Premier go head-to-head this evening, as The New Saints visit Maes Tegid in a big clash between the two sides, which could see either The New Saints extend their gap at the top, or see the Lakesiders climb to the top of the pile. The Town come into today's game having been knocked out of the SPFL Trust Trophy by Queen's Park at the third round stage, as the Scottish side ran out 3-0 victors at Maes Tegid. Domestically, the Town are yet to taste defeat, with four wins and two draws in all competitions. On the other hand, The New Saints progressed to the Fourth Round of the SPFL Trust Trophy with a 3-0 victory of their own against Hibernian 'B'. Meanwhile, they have also been unbeaten domestically, with five victories and one draw in all competitions.

Danger Man Adrian Cieslewicz - With Declan McManus a possible doubt, Cieslewicz will step up following a great start to the season, sitting in joint second in the Cymru Premier goalscoring charts. The 32 year old has been in great form, scoring four goals in the opening five league games, with two in his last two appearances, scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win against Colwyn Bay, and one of six goals against Aberystwyth Town.

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.
