Date: Wednesday 12th February, 2020

Kick Off: 13:00

Venue: USW Sport Park, Treforest

USW will be looking to make it three wins in a row as they welcome neighbours Cardiff Metropolitan to the Sport Park.  

Without a loss away from home this league campaign, USW 1st will be confident heading into their clash against second placed Cardiff Met, who are breathing down their necks in the race for the title.

The Treforest outfit have lost only one game this season in the league campaign, with seven wins and just one draw, so will be very keen to keep this run going, whilst the visitors will be hoping that they can knock USW off top spot come the end of the campaign.

This game will no doubt be an exciting one, with so much to play for.

Cardiff Met are only three points adrift of the league-leaders, so a win for the visitors would level them on points with USW, which would make the end of season run-in particularly entertaining.

Marjon University and Solent University are quite far off the pace in league terms, compared to these two, but with football, anything can happen!

The only other fixture that USW have lost this season was a 1-0 defeat in the Women’s Trophy, against who? Cardiff Met 2nd! This will perhaps play a mental role in the game, however, having beaten them 3-0 in the league already, USW will be confident they can do the business.
