Danger Man


Aaron Williams – Williams has not scored in three games so by his accounts he will be long overdue a goal in the first game of the Championship Conference. The 28-year-old has struck an impressive 23 goals this season in all competitions with 13 of those coming in the league. Williams also scored against the Lakesiders in the Nathaniel MG Cup as he gave his side the lead in the quarter-finals before Bala were able turnaround the scores.


Previous Meeting


We last faced Newtown at home on matchday 21 as we defeated the Robins 1-0 at Maes Tegid. Will Evans' late first-half effort was enough to edge the scores on that evening as we earned a hard-fought victory.


Head-To-Head


In our last eight meetings against the Robins, we have a head-to-head record of six wins, one draw and one defeat in all competitions. However, only two victories have come away from home, with a 3-3 draw back in November last year, and a 1-0 defeat back in September of 2019.
