TNS remained the only unbeaten side in the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League until Prestatyn abruptly ended their run on Tuesday night, with a 1 – 0 win. Prestatyn, who’re on a two-game streak, are away to Bala Town in this weekend’s televised fixture and are 7/4 to pick up three points against a Bala side (5/4) who’ve lost their last three, and are still searching for their first win of the season.
Both Carmarthen (11/2) and TNS (2/5) will be looking for a return to winning ways after unexpected defeats – with Carmarthen spectacularly crashing to a 7 – 1 loss at Prestatyn. A win could put TNS back top of the table but having failed to score in their last two, the draw is an inviting 10/3.
Having conceded five to Port Talbot last weekend, Aberystwyth are in the unenviable position of occupying 12th place in the table, and are the lowest scoring and highest conceding side in the league. A visit to Connah’s Quay (5/4) – who’ve won their last three – is probably the last thing Aberystwyth (7/4) would’ve wanted. A Connah’s Quay first-half/second-half double result is 3/1.
Afan Lido (7/1) have won just twice on the road in ten attempts at Bangor (3/10), but travel to North Wales in good form having taken 7 points from their last 9. If Afan Lido are left empty-handed, it won’t be for lack of work-rate or desire, the draw/Bangor double result is 10/3.
Llanelli (4/9) thrashed Newtown (5/1), 9 – 2 in the same fixture last year, but a repeat of such a scoreline against a much improved Newtown outfit is far from likely. Newtown were set-back with a 3 – 1 defeat to Connah’s Quay last weekend, and although Llanelli held TNS to a credible goalless draw, they may well struggle to put aside mounting off-field distractions.
Airbus UK (2/1) fly into their fixture with Port Talbot (11/10) on the back of an inconsistent run of form, as Airbus’ new-look side from last season have shown signs of early teething problems. Port Talbot are three unbeaten after seeing off Aberystwyth 5 – 0 and Port will fancy themselves for a home win.
