UPDATE: The Rhondda Derby between AFC Porth and Ton Pentre is on following a pitch inspection at Dinas Park.
Once again football is within the grasp of the weather this weekend as rain sweeps in ahead of the scheduled Rhondda Derby match between AFC Porth and Ton Pentre on Saturday, 25th January 2014.
Both teams will hope that the pitch at Dinas Park will recover in time for the match, as there’s always much excitement surrounding Rhondda Derby encounters, and one player who will be looking forward to it is Mark Crutch.
Crutch returned to the Bulldogs this week following his transfer from Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League outfit Afan Lido and he will be relishing the chance to play against AFC Porth.
The defender is manager Dean Morris’ second signing in January following the reacquisition of Andrew Hughes, as he attempts to add some experience to his talented squad.
The match against AFC Porth promises to be an entertaining affair with both teams brimming with quality players, however, neither team has enjoyed much good form of late.
In their last five matches, Porth have one win, one draw and three defeats. Meanwhile, Ton Pentre are without a win with two draws and three defeats.
The form-book makes it difficult to predict what will happen between the teams, which should make it an entertaining and unpredictable affair. The match kicks off at 2.00pm.
A pitch inspection is likely to be needed on Saturday morning and we will bring you the very latest news on the match here on TonPentreAFC.com, Twitter and Facebook.
