The New Saints kick-off the midweek fixtures in the Adran Premier as they host Aberystwyth Town at Park Hall.
Andy Williams’ side head into the contest on the back of beating Wrexham 3-0 in the FAW Women’s Cup and will look to take the positive performance into their league campaign.
Aberystwyth Town fell to a 2-0 defeat at Port Talbot, in the only all-Tier 1 fixture, knocking them out of the national cup. The Seasiders have been impressive in the league so far this season however, picking up six points from their opening four games, including a 1-0 win last time out in the league.
An intriguing contest could unfold at Cyncoed Campus on Thursday night, as Cardiff Met host Pontypridd Town. The Archers responded well to their opening day disappointment, claiming four consecutive wins, including a 4-0 victory over Llanelli Town in the Cup to see them safely through to Round 2.
Fern Burrage-Male’s Pontypridd Town bounced back from their 1-0 defeat to Aberystwyth Town by progressing in the Cup with a 3-0 win over Cardiff Bluebelles and will be hoping to get back to winning ways in the league this week.
Rounding off the midweek’s fixtures are Barry Town and Cardiff City, who will be competing at Jenner Park. Barry Town United took confidence from their early league performances, knocking out Adran South’s Merthyr Town 8-1 to progress in the Cup. The Linnets will be hoping to take that performance as they face an in-form Cardiff City.
The Bluebirds have made an impression so far this season, recording three convincing league wins and a 9-1 win over Caldicot Town in the Cup. A win for Iain Darbyshire’s side would see them close the gap with current league leaders, Swansea City, whose clash with Port Talbot has been postponed due to Cup commitments.
