Ton Pentre go to Risca United on Saturday (24 September) hoping to get their third straight win in Welsh League Division One.
The match, which is being played at the Centre for Sporting Excellence in Ystrad Mynach, kicks off at 2.30pm and Lee Phillips is expected to have a full squad to choose from.
Both the Bulldogs and the Cuckoos will be marking the Football Association of Wales Fair Play Day initiative at the game. The teams will wear armbands with the campaigns logos during the game and take part in a Fair Play hand-shake prior to the game in order to promote the message along with a pitch side banner.
Talking about the Fair Play Day, the FAW’s Discipline Officer, Ian Fisher, said: “Each club that takes a proactive approach and promotes the FAW Fair Play initiative can reduce the number of disciplinary points they have received throughout the season to be in with a chance of winning their League’s FAW Fair Play Table and receive £1000 prize money.”
Much like the Bulldogs, Risca have had a mixed start to the season and come into this match on the back of a 6-1 defeat to Caerau Ely and a 1-0 loss the previous week against Taffs Well.
In contrast, Ton Pentre are going for a third consecutive victory after beating Cwmbran Celtic and Caldicot Town in their previous two games.

RESERVES FINALLY HOPE TO START THEIR SEASON
Ton Pentre Reserves should finally get their season underway, following postponements in recent weeks. They take on Bridgend Street Reserves at Lewistown (Blackmill Road, CF32 7HU) on Saturday (24 September) at 2.30pm.
Manager Ross Griffiths has been itching to get his Reserves Team on the pitch and when that match kicks off, it will be an historic moment for the Club.
“I cannot wait to get started, with the weather and cup delaying the start to our season it feels like a lifetime since we last had a game,” Griffiths told tonpentreafc.com.
“The players are looking forward to it and we’re all privileged to be part of Ton Pentre’s history as its first ever Reserve Team.”
On the challenge ahead against Bridgend Street, Griffiths added: “The players have twice this week trained well and they know what is expected of them. I’m hoping for a positive result”
