Weekend Preview - 31 March

We take a look ahead to the weekend's fixtures

Cardiff Met v Briton Ferry Llansawel

Cardiff Met return to Cyncoed Campus as champions having wrapped up their sixth league title with a point at Swansea last time out.

They host the league's bottom side Briton Ferry, who are hoping to register their first win of the season as they attempt to climb off the foot of the table.

Ferry’s boss Ross Norgrove believes his side are full of confidence going into the clash:

‘We will go into the game full of confidence after our recent performances. Met have proved that they are the best side in the league by securing the title yet again however we are in a relegation battle and will be fighting for every point between now and the end of the season.’

“We lost narrowly to Met in the semi-finals of the welsh cup and we played well so we will be going into the game looking to get something from it.”

The Archers recorded a resounding 6-0 win when the sides met at Genquip Stadium earlier in the campaign and will be looking to put in another strong performance before being awarded the title after the game.

However, Met forward Robyn Pinder is taking nothing for granted ahead of the game.

“It’s going to be a really tough game. I don’t know how they are not higher up the league than they are. they gave us a tough game a couple of weekends back and credit to them, they stopped us playing and dealt with the conditions a lot better than we did.

"We’ve not played well the last couple of weeks so we are hoping we can perform well and get through what is sure to be a difficult game.”

Rhyl v Swansea City

In the only other league fixture this weekend, Rhyl host Swansea as they attempt to open up a gap between themselves and Briton Ferry at the bottom end of the table.

The two have met twice so far this season, once in the league and once in the cup, with the Swans recording consecutive 7-0 victories.

Swans midfielder Katy Hosford is hoping her side can take their good form up to north Wales:

“I think we’ve been doing really well the last couple of weeks, it’s a long journey up there but we don’t just want to go and get the three points, we want to put in a really good performance and hopefully take that form into the cup final next Friday.”

The home side will be hoping to fare better this weekend as they aim to retain their WPWL status for next season. The visitors meanwhile will be looking to pick up some momentum ahead of next weekend’s League Cup Final against Cardiff Met.

Abergavenny v Cardiff City – FAW Women’s Cup

The weekend's other fixture sees Abergavenny host Cardiff City in their rearranged FAW Women’s Cup semi-final.

With both sides assured of their WPWL status for next season, they will no doubt be looking for a big performance as they attempt to book a place in next month’s final.

The two sides have already met twice this season, with the Bluebirds defeating Abergavenny 2-0 in the league, whilst Cardiff also edged a close contest in the League Cup, claiming a 2-1 victory in extra time after a 1-1 draw in regulation.

Abergavenny manager Richard Jeremiah is confident that his side can get a result on Sunday:

“I think it’s going to be a case of being confident in our abilities and knowing that we have been unlucky against them twice already this season. We are just going to stick to our game plan in order to try and get the win.”

City will be aiming to reach their fourth final in the last five years, having been beaten 2-1 by Swansea in last season’s final, whilst Abergavenny are looking to secure the club's first final appearance.
