Team News: Newtown
The Newtown boss Chris Hughes has a full complement, with no fitness concerns at all coming into this match with a fully healthy group available for selection. Kieran Mills-Evans cannot play in this game through suspension.
Team News: Cardiff Met
With a fully injury-free squad to pick from, the Cardiff Met manager Christian Edwards has zero fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game.
Newtown should be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target.
Conversely, Cardiff Met could well find it tough to break down their defence but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be scoring as well.
Accordingly, we see a pretty comfortable 3-1 victory for Newtown at the end of the 90 minutes.
