UPDATE 12.18pm: Ton Pentre v Goytre United has been called off. The pitch has waterlogged in the past hour.
UPDATE 11.15am: Although we believe the pitch to be playable at this moment in time, the match referee has kindly agreed to come early to the ground to assess the pitch. This inspection will take place at approximately 12pm. The heavy showers are a cause for concern.
UPDATE: Following a 9am pitch inspection the game is on. We are aware of the forecast throughout the day and will continue to assess the pitch.
Ton Pentre are set for a return to Ynys Park on Saturday (28 November) following several weeks on the road. However, with rain forecast for the morning of the match, which follows Friday afternoon’s deluge, a pitch inspection may be required.
We will provide updates on any possible pitch inspection across tonpentreafc.com, Twitter and Facebook.
The Bulldogs and the Goyts met each other last week in the Nathaniel Cars League Cup Round 2 but despite creating many chances, Ton Pentre lost the match 3-1.
This latest meeting is in Nathaniel Cars Welsh League Division One and Goytre United will be tipped to pick up the points as they are currently enjoying a good season, with the club in third place.
The Bulldogs meanwhile, are without a win in six matches and are determined to get their season back on track at Ynys Park.
Prior to the match, there will be a minute silence in memory of former Bulldogs Chairman Bryan Bees, who sadly passed away earlier this week.
Ton Pentre and Supporters Direct are teaming up to hold an open meeting at the Clubhouse on Monday, 30 November at 6pm to explore a new community ownership model for the club. Everyone is invited to attend.
