The Lakesiders return to Maes Tegid for the first time in three fixtures!
The Town return to Maes Tegid having played away from home in their last three fixtures, including a trip down to today’s opponents Cardiff Met, just last weekend. The Lakesiders come into this game on the back of a 2-1 away win to Aberystwyth Town, where Gary Roberts bagged his first goal for the Town since returning, while Lassana Mendes also headed home to take all three points back to Maes Tegid.
The visitors today, Cardiff Met, still sit in 7th place following last weekend’s result, despite almost taking all three points until a 90th minute header coming from Henry Jones salvaged a point for the Lakesiders. The Met currently have 8 games remaining of Phase 1, and with the position they currently sit in, they could push themselves into the top 6 by mid February, just before the split. Met have been in decent form, picking up 11 points in their last 6 results, while only tasting defeat once, and that was at the hands of The New Saints, who could only put one goal past Met, with the only goal coming from a Liam Black own goal.
Last weekend’s score draw, saw the only two goals scored late in the game, as Ollie Hulbert slid the ball past Ramsay in the 85th minute to give Met the lead. However as the fourth official held up his board to signal four minutes of added time, Henry Jones headed home to salvage a point for the Lakesiders, although it was dropped point for the Town, in what was probably a fair result between the two sides.
Following last weekend’s tie, both sides will likely look to put on more of a show this time round, especially for the Lakesiders who would want to follow up the win in mid-week, with another win today, with both Captain Chris Venables and Nathan Peate available to return to the team following their suspensions. Meanwhile Cardiff Met could break into the top 6 with a win today, with it being so tight in the middle of the table, the Met could climb up to 5th if results go their way, therefore both sides today will hopefully go for the win and put on a good show, in the last fixture before Christmas for the Lakesiders!
No fans will be allowed to attend the match with strict safety protocols to follow to ensure the game can go ahead.
