It’s a huge weekend in the Genero Adran Premier, with many clubs playing their final game before the split.

In the game of the day, Cardiff City welcome Cardiff Met to Leckwith Stadium in a battle between second and third.

The Bluebirds head into the fixture after two resounding victories, securing 7-1 and 4-0 wins over Barry Town United and Pontypridd Town respectively.

A player to watch for the Bluebirds is winger Danielle Green, who operated last time out as a lone striker, netting twice in a hugely impressive display.

Visitors Cardiff Met are also on a positive run of form, recording five consecutive victories.

In their previous fixture, the Archers defeated Barry Town 7-1, with braces from American attackers Olivia Thompson and Elianna Chavez.

With both sides on 30 points, this weekend’s game is massive in the context of who goes on to battle with Swansea for the title.

Aberystwyth Town need just a point to make sure of a place in the top four, as they travel to Port Talbot.

The Seasiders will be full of confidence following a remarkable performance against the back-to-back champions, securing a 0-0 stalemate.

Port Talbot are on the back of two 2-0 defeats to Swansea City and The New Saints respectively, but will take encouragement from their 2-0 victory over Aberystwyth in this season’s FAW Welsh Women’s Cup.

League leaders Swansea City will be looking to bounce back from dropping points for the first time this season, as they host The New Saints at Llandarcy Academy of Sport.

Despite being held to a draw at Aberystwyth last week, the Swans have been outstanding this campaign, winning 11 games and scoring a total 34 goals.

Facing the Saints will be a challenge however, as Andy Williams’ side were impressive against Port Talbot, with goals from Caitlin Chapman and Lexie Harrison.

Rounding off the weekend’s action are Barry Town United and Pontypridd Town.

Both sides will be looking for positive reactions to last weekend, as the Linnets fell to a defeat to Met and Ponty were beaten by Cardiff City.

Fern Burrage-Male’s side still have a mathematical chance of finishing in the top four, but would need a resounding win and Aberystwyth to lose.

With Barry’s fate sealed ahead of the split, they’ll be looking to gain momentum ahead of Phase Two.
