NEWTOWN welcome Llandudno to Latham Park for the final time this season on Saturday.

The fifth meeting of the sides this season comes just three weeks after their last clash when the Robins edged a 4-3 victory in the J D Welsh Cup.

Newtown will hope for a similar result this weekend while also keen for a large crowd to recoup some of the losses incurred by their last hosting of Llandudno in December when a new record low home attendance of a meagre 92 was set.

Manager Chris Hughes remains suspended with experienced assistant Callum McKenzie and coach Gavin Cadwallader in charge from the dug-out this weekend.

Both will be anxious to improve on Newtown’s disappointing derby defeat against Aberystwyth Town a fortnight ago which all but ended lingering hopes of ending seventh and securing a place in the end of season Europa League play offs.

Saturday’s visit of Llandudno represents the first of a home double header with Carmarthen Town visiting Latham Park on Friday, March 30.

Hughes will return to the dug-out for the final month of the season which begins with a Sunday noon JD Welsh Cup semi-final clash with Aberystwyth in Bala.

Newtown bring the curtains down on their campaign with a trip to Barry Town United on April 14 before hosting Prestatyn Town in their final home game on April 21.

Newtown end the season with yet another derby at Aberystwyth Town when the Mid Wales sides meet for a fifth time this season on April 27.
