This weekend sees the final round of phase one fixtures in the JD Cymru Premier, while there are more vital points to fight for in the second tier too. Here are the key games to watch. 

JD Cymru Premier – Flint Town United vs Pontypridd United (Saturday, 5:15pm)

With the JD Cymru Premier taking a three-week break after this weekend’s fixtures, Flint Town United and Pontypridd United will both hope to put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone. 

The two clubs sit two points and one point above the bottom two respectively, meaning Aberystwyth Town will leapfrog one of them if they beat Caernarfon Town. 

Flint have won just one of their last 10 league matches, but Pontypridd have picked up seven points from their last four games to boost their survival hopes. 

The reverse fixture occurred back on the opening day of the season in August, when Okera Simmonds’ goal in first half stoppage time gave the Silkmen a 1-0 win. 

JD Cymru North – Ruthin Town vs Mold Alexandra (Friday, 7:30pm)

Mold Alexandra continue to impress in the JD Cymru North following promotion from the Ardal North West last season, with Mike Cunningham’s side winning three of their last four matches. 

On Friday night they make the trip to Ruthin Town, who have won three of their last five games and held promotion-chasing Llandudno to a 1-1 draw last weekend. 

A win for the Town would see them climb to fifth place, while Mold would move to within a point of their opponents if they triumph. 

Goals from Sam Jones and Gwion Owen helped Ruthin to a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture at Alyn Park in September, with Danny Warren pulling one back late on from the penalty spot. 

JD Cymru South – Goytre United vs  Barry Town United (Friday, 7:30pm)

Goytre United’s resurgence since Karl Lewis took over as manager in December has been impressive to watch. 

The Goyt have picked up 10 points from a possible 15 to move out of the relegation zone, beating top half sides Briton Ferry Llansawel and Trefelin in the process. 

However their biggest test yet comes on Friday night as they host JD Cymru South leaders Barry Town United, who have won 14 successive league matches. 

Included in that run was a 5-0 win over Goytre United in September, when Kayne McLaggon netted a hat-trick alongside goals for Luke Cooper and Jordan Cotterill.
