The Lakesiders head to Latham Park in the third fixture of the Cymru Premier Championship Conference to take on Newtown, as both sides look to stake their claim for European Qualification. Although today's opponents are 12 points away from the final European place, there is still plenty of football to be played before the end of the season!
The Town come into today's match on the back of two well contested draws against Penybont and Connah's Quay Nomads, while the Robins come into today having been narrowly beaten by The New Saints in their last outing, despite having a goal ruled out in their 1-0 defeat.

Aaron Williams - The 29 year old leads the goal scoring charts for the Robins, with 13 goals in 22 league appearances, as he also holds on to joint 2nd along with Ryan Brobbel and Ben Clark in the league's top goalscoring chart. However, Williams has not found the net in his last five appearances in all competitions, with his last goal coming in a 6-1 victory over Aberystwyth Town back in December. Despite not finding the net in recent appearances, there's no doubt the Robins' top goalscorer will be a threat in today's match should he feature.
The Lakesiders are in great form against today's opponents, with no defeats in our last 11 meetings, including 10 victories and a draw against the Robins. The most recent victory for the Robins was back in 2019, as a George Harry goal just six minutes from time secured the three points for the hosts on the day. The previous meeting between the two sides was a 2-0 victory for the Lakesiders at Latham Park, as Antony Kay and Chris Venables' goals either side of the half secured the three points back in September last year.
