Match Preview: Caernarfon Town vs Bala Town

We bring the curtain down on another JD Cymru Premier season, with a trip across Gwynedd to face our Gwynedd rivals Caernarfon Town, having already secured our European status for next season!

The Town are without victory in our last three league meetings, with two draws against Newtown and most recently Connah's Quay Nomads and a defeat to the New Saints. Although, our draw with Newtown proved pivotal as it would secure European qualification for next season, having not participated in Europe this past season.

The Canaries are in a similar run of form, with no wins in their last three but have been defeated on all occasions against Cardiff Met, The New Saints and most recently Newtown, in which has seen our Gwynedd rivals concede 12 goals in their last two games.

Danger Man

Adam Davies - The 27 year old has been at the forefront of the goals for the Cofi's this season since signing from Airbus UK last summer. Davies has 14 league goals to his name and has helped his side reach the European Play-Offs after our Gwynedd rivals missed out last season by finishing in the bottom six. Despite only scoring two goals in Phase Two, Davies will be looking to push on in the Play-Offs in an attempt to secure European football for the Cofi Army.

However, the Lakesiders have not tasted defeat in our last 10 meetings with the Canaries, with our last defeat coming in a 3-0 loss at the Oval in May 2021.
