Kieran Smith (Bala Town) tries luck from just outside the box
4th placed Bangor City visit Maes Tegid on Tuesday evening with currently three points between falling out of the Super Six with two games remaining before the Corbett Sports WPL season split. The Cizitens have only lost once in their last six matches and it was to top of the table TNS in their last outing 2-1 at The Bookpeople Stadium. Although, Bangor will be looking to break their away goalscoring form due to not scoring away from home in their last two matches.
Bala will not be as fresh after losing on penalities in theWord Cup Final on Saturday against Carmarthen Town. The Lakesiders sit in 10th position in the WPL with no mathimatical chance of finishing in the Super Six, with 20 points from 20 games so far this season. Their last six WPL matches consist of two wins and two draws. The Lakesiders are in rich goalscoring form with 16 goals coming from them very last six matches and hope that the likes of Mark Connolly and Ian Sheridan will fire them to success after their disappointment in theWord Cup Final.
Both sides have already been busy in the transfer window with the Lakesiders securing the signatures of Sean Thornton and Danny Collins meanwhile Bangor have signed Gerwyn Jones and secured Jay Colbeck on loan from Wrexham until the end of the season.
Michael Wilde (TNS) vs. Bala Town (20/12/13)
The Old Gold will be on a high after retaining theWord Cup at Park Avenue on Saturday however seeing as the match went all the way to penalties fatigue could come into effect whilst entertaining the Champions (TNS). Carmarthen have been sat in the top six for the majority of the season and are one point of being in or our at this moment in time but have two games advantage over some WPL clubs. They've only managed to win once in their last six matches losing four in the process. The Old Gold have been struggling to find consistant goals in the WPL of late only managing five in those previous six games.
The New Saints are four points clear at the top of table after moving clear since the New Year. This is down to a combination solid defence displays only conceding three goals in their last six matches and fine goalscoring prowess with 15 goals in the same amount of games. With 57 goals in total this season from the likes of Draper, Wilde and Darlington TNS are never short of scorers whether home or away. It must be noted though that the only two matches that TNS have lost this season have been away from home at Prestatyn Town and Newtown both 1-0.
