Match Preview: Newtown vs Bala Town

The Lakesiders head back on the road on Saturday, in search of bouncing back from two disappointing defeats in our last two outings, as we head to Latham Park to face in-form Newtown.

The Town are in a bad spell of form having been knocked out of the Nathaniel MG Cup and being defeated by Barry Town and Aberystwyth Town in our last two league fixture. The three points against Newtown is a must at this stage of the season!

The Robins have been in superb form, having won their last five league fixtures after a poor start to the season. Newtown's last outing saw them defeat Pontypridd United by just the one goal at the USW Sports Park, despite a red card to Newtown's Callum Roberts.

Danger Man

Aaron Williams - The 29 year old sits in 2nd on the Top Goalscoring Chart of the JD Cymru Premier so far this season, with six goals in his first seven appearances. The Forward is in great form for the Robins, having been involved in six goals in his past four appearances, scoring five and assisting once. The Lakesiders defence will be well accustomed to Williams, having conceded two goals to the Forward in last season's JD Cymru Premier European Play Off Semi Final at Maes Tegid, as the Robins progressed to the Final with a 4-2 victory.

Previous Meetings

The Robins have come out on top in the last three meetings between the two sides, with two victories in Phase Two of last season's JD Cymru Premier, and one victory in the European Play Off Semi Final. However, prior to the last three meetings between the two sides, the Lakesiders had been victorious in the last five meetings, and unbeaten in our last 11. The most recent victory for the Lakesiders was in Phase One of last season's JD Cymru Premier, as the Town visited Latham Park and took all three points in a 2-0 victory, with goals from Antony Kay and Chris Venables.
