WPWL 09/12 Preview

After the League Cup took centre stage last weekend, it’s back to League action this week with the final round of fixtures before the mid-season break.

Leaders Cardiff Met will be looking to maintain both their unbeaten start to the season and their four-point gap as they travel north to face Rhyl.

The Archers have won seven straight games in all competitions since their 1-1 draw with Port Talbot back in September, and will head to Rhyl full of confidence as the two sides prepare to meet for the first time this season.

The Lilywhites meanwhile picked up a big win in the Cup away at Llandudno last weekend, a quick turnaround given they lost 4-0 against the Seasiders the previous week in the League.

There’s two games in the capital as Cyncoed host Llandudno, and Cardiff City welcome Swansea to Leckwith. Both the Bluebirds and the Swans find themselves on thirteen points, and the winner will overtake

Abergavenny into second place, with Richie Jeramiah’s side not in action this week.

After slow starts to the campaign, both Cyncoed and Llandudno find themselves in the bottom half of the table, and looking to pick up a win on Sunday that will close the gap to the teams above them. Both sides are also looking to bounce back from losing derbies in the Cup last week to Met and Rhyl respectively.

The final game of the weekend sees Briton Ferry make the short trip along the M4 to play Port Talbot. Hayley Williams’ side come into this one after back to back meetings with Swansea, and will move up a place with a win, should one of Cardiff or Swansea win their match. The Reds meanwhile are looking to register their first points of the season.

This weekend also sees League Sponsor, Orchard running their #DonateDifferently campaign at the Cyncoed and Cardiff City games. Orchard are collecting donations of toiletries, new pants, new socks, sleeping bags, and backpacks for the Huggard Centre in Cardiff.

Huggard, who have been Orchard’s charity partner for the last two years, help homeless people in Cardiff, and any donation you can spare them tomorrow would be greatly appreciated.
