As we know the WPL clubs play each other twice in the first phase of the 2015/16 competition (22 matches) and the league then splits into Top Six (Championship Conference) and Bottom Six (Play-Off Conference), with the clubs in those groups playing each other twice again (10 matches) to make a 32 fixture league season.
During the second phase no club in the bottom six may finish higher than seventh, no matter how many points are gained during the split stage. Our clubs finishing in third to seventh place will then take part in a Play-Off to determine who gains the third UEFA Europa League spot in 2016/17. Should the JD Welsh Cup Winners be amongst those clubs, the eighth placed club would be invited into the Play-Offs.
If any of the clubs are level on points to determine the final two places for the Championship Conference it will come down to goal difference, then goals for and if need be matches won.

Eighth place Aberystwyth Town welcome Newtown to Park Avenue in front of the Sgorio cameras live on S4C this Saturday knowing that they must win (by a number of goals too) to have any real chance of securing a Top Six spot for Phase Two. Last time out the Seasiders lost out to Port Talbot Town 1-3 which means the club have lost their last three matches at home.
Newtown realistically need a point to guarantee their Championship Conference position for Phase Two (unless there is a massive win by Carmarthen Town). The Robins have failed to win in their last two away matches with their recent outing amounting to a 3-0 defeat to Bangor City last Friday night.
Earlier in the season Aberystwyth and Newtown played out a 0-0 at Park Avenue back in October.
The previous six encounters at Park Avenue has seen Aberystwyth win three, two draws being played and Newtown winning once. It was a 1-0 win for Aberystwyth back in October 2014 thanks to a Chris Venables penalty. In Phase Two, Aberystwyth edged it with a 3-2 win in January 2015 thanks to goals from Mark Jones, Ross Stephens and Sion James.
