Vale of Glamorgan Football League Preview 25/9

Vale of Glamorgan Football League Preview 25/9

New league leaders Penarth Town host St Athan in Llandough just a mere two weeks after their table topping clash ended in a 1-1 draw. Penarth will be buoyed after their convincing triumph over Holton Road last weekend but we think this once again ends all square in an enthralling contest.

Cadoxton Barry got back to winning ways last week and welcome Barry Athletic to Bryn Y Don. Athletic have only one win in six in the league this season and we can only see Cadoxton Barry getting the win here.

Holton Road head to Pencoedtre to play BV looking to bounce back from last weeks defeat. BV will want to respond after being routed last week but we say it’ll be Holton Road celebrating the three points.

AFC Rhoose return to action this week ay Ceri Road and take on the challenge of Cogan Coronation. Rhoose are yet to taste defeat this season while Cogan are unbeaten in their last three, but we think that ends here with Rhoose coming out victorious.

Tynewydd play Cardiff Airport at Pencoedtre, after Airport got their first win of the season last time out, Tynny sit sixth in the league and have become a tough outfit to play against and we tip them to edge this one.

Cowbridge Town chase their first points in four games against an Island Marine side finding form, this will be a tight game but think Island Marine take it by a goal.

In Division One it’s super Saturday as leaders Rhoose Social face another stern test as they play Vale Athletic who have a 100% record but have played two games less than the side in the top spot. This will undoubtedly be a cracker and we think an entertaining score draw.

The big games keep coming as Sully take on Cwm Talwg, both teams will be looking to bounce back from their first defeats of the season last week, and we think Sully take the points.
St Athan B will want to respond after blowing a three goal lead last week as they host BV reserves who took a heavy loss last time out. We think St Athan B edge this one in a close encounter.
Island Marine B host Holton Road B at Maslin Park, Island Marine B got their first victory lady week while Holton Road B will want to bounce back after being hammered two weeks ago, and we say Holton Road B get the win.
And finally, Vale Madrid showed testicular fortitude last week coming from three goals down and they host St Athan C at Burnham Avenue, we only see Vale Madrid taking the win here albeit against an improving St Athan C side.

Penarth Town’s perfect start to the Premier Division ended last weekend with a 1-1 draw with league leaders St Athan, and now they look to take top spot on goal difference, but opponents Holton Road will have the same aspirations. This one at the Butts will be a classic, we think the points are shared.
Cadoxton Barry return to action after two weeks off looking to bounce back from defeat last time out. They play BV at the Butts who have lost the last two and we think Cadoxton Barry get back to winning ways here.
Island Marine picked up a win last time out and host Tynewydd at Maslin Park. Tynewydd secured a valuable point last week, we think this will be a good game and think it’ll be a narrow away win in somewhat of an upset.
After losing their first three, Cogan have gone unbeaten in the last two and they welcome Cowbridge Town to the Rec. Town have one win from seven this season, this won’t be easy but we see Cogan picking up the three points.
In Division One, it’s a quick turn around with Rhoose Social meeting Sully Sports at Ceri Road after last weeks thrilling 3-3 draw. No doubt this will just as exciting and we think there will be goals again and the points shared.
Cwm Talwg will be looking to take advantage of any slip at the top when they head to Pencoedtre to play Vale Athletic who have made a perfect start to the campaign but have only played three games. This will be a great test of both sides title aspirations, we think it ends a point a piece.
Vale United welcome BV seconds to Corntown off the back off an impressive win last week. BV have one win from six and we think Vale Utd cruise to victory here.
St Athan B have won their last two and they travel to Burnham Avenue to play Vale Madrid who have lost their last three. This will be a tight game but we think St Athan B edge the points.
St Athan C host Island Marine B still chasing their first points of the season. Island Marine B have only played three games and have one point from them, we think they pick up their first win of the season here.
And a good luck to Barry Athletic in the SWFA Cup as they play Llanharry in the first round, all other Vale teams got a bye to round two.

League leaders St Athan host Penarth Town who have played a game less, but both sides have a 100% record. One teams O may go but we think it ends all square.

Rhoose moved up to fifth last week and will look to make up ground on the pack, they host Cowbridge at Ceri Road and we say Rhoose keep their unbeaten start going with a win.

Reigning champions Island Marine have one win from their opening games, and they play Barry Athletic who have a similar record. We think Island Marine get their season going at Maslin Park with a victory in the Island derby.

Cogan picked up their first win last week and host Tynewydd who have made a decent start to the campaign, watch out for this one to a great contest and we say the spoils are shared.

Cardiff Airport sit bottom of the table without a point but this is probably an unfair reflection of their performances, they play BV at Ceri Road who have made a decent start to life in the top flight, but we think Airport get their first win of the season.

In Division One it’s a real big game, as Sully host Rhoose Social in a clash of title favourites. This will be a cracker, and there won’t be much to separate the sides but we will put our neck out and say it’s a Rhoose Social win.

Holton Road B play Vale Utd at Pencoedtre, both teams have had similar starts albeit Utd playing two games less, another good game here and we say Utd edge it.

And finally, in a bizarre clash St Athan C host St Athan B. St Athan C are still chasing their first points of the season while St Athan B picked up their first win last week will be buoyed by that, so we think St Athan B take the three points here.
