WORKING in Leeds today and not back until early evening so will put my thoughts up now on this one – I’m taking on the Welsh giants at home and it’s a gamble.
TNS v Caernarfon (7.45pm)
It’s possible I may end up horribly wrong here but I’m just not convinced TNS will fulfill the type of victory needed to justify the prices given against a Caernarfon side who have been a resilient bunch in their first season back in the to -flight.
Out of their 13 matches only 2 have seen them beaten by a three-goal margin, 3-0 against TNS was one of their openers and they have shored up since then with some cracking outcomes including a 0-0 draw with top side Connah’s Quay and a 1-0 defeat of second-placed Barry Town.
If you rule out the more historic H2Hs just 1 of the last 4 would have seen TNS win by a three-goal margin and I wonder if the minnows may just put up more resistance than the bookies suggest:
- Caernarfon +3
- (4-5, bet365)
Deliberated between Trinidad & Tobago, New Zealand Youth and Brazil for the Night Owl so fair to say it’s an eclectic mix of games on the shortlist but settled with the latter – bit of work to do so no time to post reasoning but anyone following in recent months will see where I’m coming from,
