Genero Adran Premier leaders Swansea City Ladies play host to Pontypridd Town this afternoon at Llandarcy (2pm).

The Swans, who boast a three-year unbeaten record in league competition, go into the fixture in high spirits after a convincing win over Cardiff Met.

Meanwhile, the visitors snatched a late point against The New Saints with an 82nd minute equaliser from Anais Trinci in their last game.

Ponty sit five points adrift of the important fourth spot, behind Aberystwyth Town, at the halfway stage of the league campaign.

Pre-match views

Chris Church: “I’m massively delighted for the players (following the win over Met), they work so hard every week, so to get a great result like that against a good team they should be mighty proud and raring to go for the next challenge.

“Fern (Burrage-Male) is doing a fantastic job with Pontypridd and credit to her and her team, they will be difficult to play against no matter where they are, but we will be ready. I have no doubt about that.

“It (being top of the league) is a fantastic position and this is credit to the work that the players and staff put in every week.”

Remember the last time?

The Swans defeated Pontypridd at the USW Sport Park with a strong second-half display.

Swansea controlled the first half and created multiple opportunities, but they couldn’t find the opener.

The pressure eventually paid off as Katy Hosford and Chloe Chivers both got their names on the scoresheet.
