League leaders The New Saints visit Jenner Park this Saturday at 14:30 as we begin a busy festive period.
The Dragons go into this Saturday’s fixture on the back of two losses away from home, including our Nathaniel MG Cup semi-final exit at the hands of Cardiff Metropolitan University (3-2) just two weeks ago. Having only lost two matches at home so far this term, Gavin and the players will be hoping that our return to Jenner Park this weekend can prompt a change in fortunes as we look to secure a place in the top-half of the JD Cymru Premier League table.
Our opponents have had an impressive season thus far, having only lost one of their opening 15 league games. The New Saints have managed to score a league-leading 39 goals this season, with striker and league top-scorer Declan McManus contributing 14 of these. In the reverse fixture at The Venue earlier in the season, despite ultimately losing 3-1, a determined performance from us will certainly inspire belief amongst our players going into the match on Saturday.
After 15 games of the league season, we find ourselves in 8th position, just 2 points off a place in the top-half of the JD Cymru Premier League. Indeed, with just 7 games remaining of the first-phase of the league season, every point is to play for over the festive period and your support this Saturday would be hugely appreciated by all at Barry Town United in what is a crucial fixture in our league season.
