While the Nathaniel MG Cup final is this weekend’s showpiece event in Welsh domestic football, the league action continues around the country. Here are the key games to watch out for. 

JD Cymru Premier – Penybont vs Newtown (Saturday, 3pm)

After their fixture last weekend was postponed due to a frozen pitch, Penybont and Newtown will conclude their JD Cymru Premier phase one campaign at the SDM Glass Stadium on Saturday afternoon. 

Both clubs have already secured their spots in the Championship Conference, with Bont in fifth on 38 points and the Robins in sixth on 33 points. 

Following a tricky December, Penybont have won their last three league matches and progressed to the JD Welsh Cup quarter-finals with a 2-0 away win at Gresford Athletic a fortnight ago. 

Newtown were knocked out of the competition by The New Saints, but Chris Hughes’ team have lost just one of their last nine league games – winning seven of those. 

The reverse fixture was an entertaining encounter at Latham Park in September, as Penybont triumphed 3-2. 

JD Cymru North – Penrhyncoch vs Holyhead Hotspur (Saturday, 2:30pm)

The bottom two in the JD Cymru North go head-to-head on Saturday afternoon, with both clubs in desperate need of points as they battle to survive. 

Eight of Penrhyncoch’s nine points this season have come on home turf, but they have lost 10 of their previous 12 fixtures. 

Holyhead Hotspur are also on nine points but have a better goal difference. Darren Garmey’s side have won just one league game all season and have lost nine of their last 11 matches – including a 4-0 defeat to Llandudno in midweek. 

With the sides currently nine points adrift of safety, they will both see this fixture as a significant opportunity to kickstart their campaign. 

JD Cymru South – Llanelli Town vs Barry Town United (Saturday, 2:30pm)

The focus will be on the top of the JD Cymru South on Saturday as league leaders Barry Town United travel to third-place Llanelli Town. 

Lee John’s side have won five of their last six league matches and sit seven points behind their weekend opponents. 

Barry are on a remarkable run of form, recording 14 consecutive victories in the league and showing no side effects of the transition between Gavin Chesterfield and Lee Kendall in the dugout. 

The Linnets won 3-1 in the reverse fixture at Jenner Park in October, as Kayne McLaggon scored twice after Liam Warman’s opener.
