Burns Road Ramblings: One point to safety!

Port Talbot Town’s dramatic 3-2 win over Carmarthen Town on Friday evening – a match that saw the Blues come from 2-1 despite being down to 10-men to push themselves 12 points clear of 11th placed Rhyl in the relegation zone.

With four games left to run, the Blues now find themselves just one point away from being mathematically safe from relegation.

Monday afternoon will see relegation candidates Rhyl battle for survival when they visit the Genquip Stadium for a Bank Holiday 2.30pm kick off in the Dafabet Welsh Premier League.

Rhyl found themselves on the receiving end of a 3-1 thumping at the hands of Aberystwyth Town on Friday evening, a result that could very well turn out to be their downfall.

12th placed Haverfordwest find themselves joint on 20 points with Rhyl – 12 points away from Andy Dyer’s Blues who are 8 points away from 9th placed Carmarthen Town.

Aberystwyth, Bangor and Carmarthen all sit at the top of the Welsh Premier play-off conference with 40 points, meaning a 7th placed finish at the top of the sub-league is possible for the Blues who are on 32 points, although mathemetically it would be tough.

Monday’s fixture will be a massive one, the Blues’ top-flight safety may not appear to be in danger as it stands but we’re not out of the woods until that 1 point is gained.

Rhyl’s visit to the Genquip Stadium on Monday afternoon kicks off at 2.30pm.
