Barry Town host Aberystwyth Town as they look to bounce back from their midweek loss to Penybont.

The Linnets succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Sam Snaith’s superb strike, after Barry Town captain Clayton Green was shown a straight red card.

Gavin Chesterfield’s side dropped down to fifth in the table having played a game greater than Bont and third-placed Bala Town.

Visitors Aberystwyth Town have had a positive re-start, claiming four points in their last two fixtures.

The Seasiders rescued a late 2-2 draw at Caernarfon Town before securing a dramatic win over Haverfordwest County in midweek.

Striker Jamie Reed opened the scoring, before Ben Fawcett equalised for the Bluebirds, only for young defender Lee Jenkins to head a last-minute winner.

The result takes Aberystwyth up to tenth in the table, as they look to create a gap between them and the relegation zone.

In the reverse fixture, the Seasiders took the lead through Steff Davies, before Linnets captain Clayton Green was sent off.

Chesterfield’s side showed great character however, as goals from Kayne McLaggon and Jordan Cotterill secured all three points at Park Avenue.
