Dafabet Welsh Premier League
Friday 25th November (ko 7.45pm)
Aberystwyth Town v Bala Town
With Aber Town Club Officials having moved heaven and earth to get the game on, Matthew Bishop's Black and Greens finally get back to action in 48 hours as Bala Town visit a Park Avenue ground which has defied the excesses of nature to host its latest Dafabet Welsh Premier League tie!
Six days ago this match seemed inconceivable as 95mph winds felled two of the Clubs' eight floodlights and strewed the 3G pitch with debris. Happily Club Officials and volunteers have worked hard to clear the surface and hire in two temporary floodlights, allowing the game to proceed.
On the field Aber couldn't wish for better opponents, as revenge is most definitely on the cards. Two weeks ago the Seasiders lost heavily at Bala's Maes Tegid, and the Players will be desperate to prove in front of a large crowd that they are so much better than they looked that night. Sam Rodon is suspended after his injury time red card, but Captain Luke Sherbon returns refreshed after his one game ban.
Bala are on a good run of results which has lifted them as high as third in the League, but Black and Greens fans will be looking to their side to prove their Top Six credentials by getting a positive result against a quality side which would really kick off a run of three home games with a bang.
Friday night games guarantee a superb atmosphere anyway at Park Avenue, but this week's encounter will really whet the appetite for a number of different reasons, not least as the game will showcase the Club's annual Student Promotion night. Aberystwyth University Students will be admitted for half price - a mere £2 - and Admission will include a free hot dog in the Clubhouse. University DIGS League Teams are expected to be strongly represented on the night.
Kick off at Park Avenue on Friday is at 7.45pm and Admission will cost £6 for Adults, £4 Concessions, £2 for Students and £1 for Children. It will be the only place to be on Friday, so make sure you play your part and roar the boys to victory!
