#JDWPL MD24 Preview

MD24 is here! Phase Two action is set to continue. Read our full preview below!

We have plenty for you to look forward to in both the championship and playoff conferences! Check out our full line-up of fixtures below.

Connah’s Quay Nomads v Caernarfon Town | Friday, February 8th 2019 (19:45)

The Cofis dealt a blow to one of the title challengers last weekend as they overcame Barry Town United with a strong second-half performance at The Oval to win the game 2-0, and this weekend they have the chance to dent another team’s title ambitions as they head to Deeside to face Connah’s Quay Nomads.

The Cofis have form for beating the top sides too, beating them away back in September in the Phase One iteration of this fixture, and holding Andy Morrison’s side to a 0-0 draw at The Oval in October, so they’ll be full of confidence ahead of this game.

For the Nomads, momentum is crucial right now, and a positive result on Friday night would be a big boost ahead of their upcoming clash against Barry Town United at Jenner Park, with three straight home games in the league following after that – including a clash against The New Saints.

Can the Cofis continue to upset the league’s leading sides this season? Find out on Friday night!

Llanelli Town v Aberystwyth Town | Friday, February 8th 2019 (19:45)

The Reds were dealt a massive blow in midweek as their midfield maestro Leon Britton was ruled out for the season after suffering a broken bone in his foot during last week’s game against Cefn Druids at The Rock.

Llanelli go into this game against Aberystwyth in a similar situation to the one they’re going to find themselves for the remainder of the season – needing points, desperately. They sit six adrift of safety, but four ahead of Llandudno, and will want to turn Stebonheath into a bit of a fortress with the crucial run-in to come.

For Aberystwyth, a great goal by Geoff Kellaway rescued a draw for them last week against Llandudno FC, and with Cardiff Met losing away to Carmarthen the point was enough to help them close the gap on the side sat in seventh spot. They’re still looking for a new manager, with Gavin Allen taking charge in the interim, but it is important they keep picking up results if they are to make a real surge for a playoff place.

The New Saints v Newtown AFC | Friday, February 8th 2019 (19:45)

The New Saints will be well-rested after their game against Bala Town was postponed last week, and they head into this game against what Scott Ruscoe earlier in the season called their bogey side with fresh impetus, hoping to continue their fine form they’ve showed in the last six weeks or so, as the champions have looked like they’ve hit top gear.

Newtown lost their unbeaten home record last weekend at the hands of the Nomads, so on their short journey to TNS they’ll be wanting to get back to winning ways and putting in a strong performance in response to last week’s disappointment – the battle between the Robins, the Cofis and Bala in Phase Two is going to be very interesting, that’s for sure.

Fixtures between these two sides rarely disappoint, and with both sides desperate to walk away from Park Hall with a victory on Friday night the stage is set for some fireworks – don’t miss this one.

Llandudno FC v Carmarthen Town | Saturday, February 9th 2019 (14:30)

An absolutely massive game for Llandudno, who return to the Giant Hospitality Stadium for the first time in Phase Two and are crying out for a victory to kickstart any potential survival charge.

The truth is, it looks very difficult for Iwan Williams’ side, who sit 10 points adrift of safety at present – with 27 to play for and games against all of the sides around them to come, it isn’t an insurmountable target, but it is one that they need to start making inroads towards with urgency.

For Carmarthen, a big win against Cardiff Met last week will have done their survival hopes a huge favour, and with Aber drawing too the Old Gold have now pulled themselves into contention for that seventh spot, so they’ll be wanting to continue to make a push for a European playoff place as they travel north this weekend.

Barry Town United v Bala Town | Saturday, February 9th 2019 (19:30 LIVE ON SGORIO)

What a live game we have in store for you this week! Barry Town United look to get back to winning ways and continue their title chase against Colin Caton’s Bala Town in this late kick-off at Jenner Park.

It was a difficult beginning to Phase Two for Gavin Chesterfield’s side as they were bettered by Caernarfon Town at The Oval, and they’re set to get a taste of just how relentless the top six is this weekend as the heavyweights from Maes Tegid come to town – but this is a challenge that excites Barry, and so it should!

For Bala, they’ve had an extended break too after their game against TNS was postponed last week, and plenty of time to prepare as they look to end their losing streak in the JDWPL, which currently stands at three games – they’re set to be involved in a fierce fight with Newtown and Caernarfon for that fourth spot, so they’ll need to pick up some wins soon.

Don’t miss this one, it is set to be superb!

Cardiff Metropolitan v Cefn Druids | Sunday, February 10th 2019 (14:30)

On Sunday, action returns to the capital as Cardiff Met welcome Cefn Druids to Cyncoed in a big clash for both at opposite ends of the bottom six.

With a number of key players missing through injury, Met fell to the impressive Carmarthen at Richmond Park last week, meaning Aberystwyth were able to close the gap slightly in the race for seventh position, whereas Druids go into a difficult away game here knowing that the two teams beneath them have home ties that they’ll be doing everything they can to win and close the gap.

Fixtures between these two sides are always entertaining, and it could well be a perfect way to top off what is set to be another superb weekend of JDWPL action. Head down to Cyncoed to catch this one live.
