The Bala Town manager Colin Caton doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this match owing to a fully injury-free squad to pick from.
Team News: The New Saints
Thanks to a completely healthy group available to choose from, the The New Saints manager Anthony Limbrick has no fitness concerns to report before this match.
In our opinion, Bala Town should get enough chances to breach the defence of this The New Saints outfit, although one goal probably won’t quite be as many as they’ll concede.
We therefore reckon that it will be a very close game with a 1-2 victory for The New Saints when the full-time whistle blows. Should be a good one.
