It's back to league action for the Lakesiders after progression to the Semi Finals of the Nathaniel MG Cup in mid-week, after a 4-0 victory over Gresford Athletic. The Town head down to the South West to take on Haverfordwest County at the Bridge Meadow Stadium in the second meeting between the two sides so far this season.

Danger Man

Jordan Davies - Since making his Bluebirds move permanent from Connah's Quay Nomads, Davies looked to be the main man for his new side, having had a great end to last season while originally on loan. The 26 year old has managed four league goals in 10 appearances for his new club, making him the club's top goalscorer so far this season. The Forward has already managed to score over half of his tally last season, and will look to add to his goals on Matchday 11, especially with his side lingering around the relegation zone.


Previous Meetings

The last time both clubs met was only two months ago, as the Bluebirds travelled to Maes Tegid for Matchday Two, where both sides played out a 1-1 draw, with Ollie Shannon snatching a point late on for the Lakesiders after Jack Wilson opened the scoring in the first half. In the previous five meetings, there's been two wins for the Town, yet there's been three draws with two 1-1 draws and a single 0-0 draw. Haverfordwest's last victory over the Town came in October 2020 as Jack Wilson netted a 93rd minute winner at Maes Tegid.
