NEWTOWN bid to get their season back on track with two home games this week.

The Robins welcome Cardiff Metropolitan to Latham Park on Saturday before South Wales League One side Penybont arrive in the first round of the Nathaniel MG Cup in midweek.

Manager Chris Hughes will look to galvanise his troops following a poor run of results.

A dismal 3-0 defeat at last season’s relegation fodder Carmarthen Town was followed by a 3-1 defeat at last season’s third placed finishers Connahs Quay Nomads on Friday.

Both results have eclipsed the Robins promising start to the campaign and ensured Newtown must look to kick start their season this week.

Newtown remain unbeaten at home this season and will once again be looking to make the Latham Park crowd the 12th man in a bid to galvanise their campaign.

The Robins faced Cardiff Metropolitan just a month ago and despite dominating large spells of the game stumbled to an opening night loss in the capital.

Meanwhile supporters will also be looking forward to watching their side play on a Saturday afternoon having played most of their games this season on a Friday night.

Meanwhile Bridgend based Penybont arrive at Latham Park on Tuesday night for the first round of the Nathaniel MG Cup.

The Bridgemen are managed by Welsh Premier goal legend Rhys Griffiths are one of 12 tier two clubs to apply for promotion to the Welsh Premier next season.

Penybont are joined by Cambrian Clydach, Haverfordwest County and Briton Ferry Llansawel from the south while Airbus UK Broughton. Bangor City, Buckley Town, Flint Town United, Holywell Town, Porthmadog, Prestatyn Town and Rhyl have applied to join from the Huws Gray Alliance.

Newtown, TNS and Aberystwyth Town have also applied for a tier one license.
