Aberystwyth Town vs Barry Town United
JD Cymru Premier
Friday 25th March
It’s another Friday nights under the lights at Aberystwyth University Park Avenue this weekend, as Barry Town United visit Ceredigion for this important Phase Two match.
Aber will be looking to bounce back from last weeks bruising encounter with Haverfordwest County and will be optimistic going into this fixture given the previous two meetings with Gavin Chesterfield’s side earlier in the season. A trademark Mathew Jones free kick secured a last gasp 2-1 win on the opening night of the season back in August, whilst a Harry Franklin header gained a point at Jenner Park in November.
Antonio Corbisiero’s side will be looking to return to the level of performance which saw the team go unbeaten for 5 games from late January until early March, whilst Barry will be looking to arrest an alarming slump in form which has seen them gain only one win in their last 11 league outings, although they come into this game on the back of a creditable 1-1 draw with Cardiff Met on 15th March.
Both clubs received some good news last week as Mark Jones’ Wales C Squad was announced. Aber’s own Lee Jenkins will be joined in the squad by Clayton Green & Kayne McLaggon from Friday’s visitors. One of the leagues most deadly finishers in recent seasons, McLaggon has already hit 12 goals so far this season, whilst Green has hit four himself.
