Dafabet Welsh Premier League

Tuesday, 5 January

Bala Town 2-1 Carmarthen Town: Bala's comeback win ensured their place in the top six when the league splits in two at the halfway point of the season on 16 January.

Mark Jones gave the visitors a 38th-minute lead with a header, but goals from Ian Sheridan and Lee Hunt in nine minutes early in the second half gave Bala the points, moving them up to third in the table. Carmarthen, currently seventh, can still reach the top six if they beat Rhyl in their remaining fixture of the first phase and if other results go their way.
