CAMBRIAN & Clydach can go six points clear at the top of the MacWhirter Welsh League first division tonight with a win at Bridgend Town.
The Rhondda side can put the pressure back on second-placed
Taffs Well, who host Goytre United tomorrow (Saturday), while Haverfordwest in
third go to Cwmbran Celtic.
Taffs Well have been free-scoring in recent weeks but were
humbled 4-1 by struggling Cardiff Corries last night as the capital city outfit
dented the visitors’ hopes of going level on points with Cambrian &
At the bottom, Aberaman Athletic can all but put the final
nail in the coffin of Caerau (Ely) who are eight points behind the Cynon Valley
club with only five games left.
In the remaining fixtures, Cwmaman Institute host West End
and Pontardawe Town entertain AFC Porth.
Monmouth Town have one hand on the division two title and a
win against Ammanford will tighten their grip on the championship as closest
rivals Tata Steel visit Caerau.
The leaders have a 10-point advantage with five games to go
and although Tata have two matches in hand, Monmouth’s fate is entirely in
their own hands as the business end of the season approaches.
Below them there is a scrap going on for third place with
four sides still in with a chance of finishing in the top three. Caerleon are
in the box seat at the moment and will be buoyant after a 6-0 thrashing of
Caerau last time out.
They face Croesyceiliog tomorrow with Dinas Powys in fourth
travelling up the Rhymney Valley to take on Aberbargoed Buds. Elsewhere, Caldicot
Town meet Ely Rangers.
Mathematically, five clubs are still in contention to win
division three though it’s looking like the battle will be between current
leaders Undy Athletic and Goytre.
The game of the day is at Undy where third-placed Pontypridd
bid to put the top two under pressure while Goytre are without a match and
Briton Ferry in fifth should have few problems seeing off Tredegar.
Newport Civil Service go up against Risca United and
Llanwern play UWIC in the remaining fixtures.
