Aberbargoed's four-game losing streak has them firmly entrenched in the division's bottom three and this is certainly a difficult game for them to gain a positive result from.
However considering the lowly position they are at, their goal total of 25 from 16 games isn't too bad - although it has to be pointed out that they failed to find the back of the net in any of those last four matches.
They will obviously seek to rediscover the from they showed in defeating BFL 4-2 at home back in mid October, one of the four wins they have recorded in 2015-2016.
BFL drew 0-0 at Afan Lido seven days ago and this will be their first home league fixture since they won 2-1 at home against now-leaders Cardiff Metropolitan University on December 12.

Cwrt-Yr-Ala, Caerau (Ely) (13) v Goytre (2).
Goytre are trying to emulate their hosts' feat of winning the Division One title last season and will begin on the back successive 5-0 victories.
Those goals took Goytre's league tally to 48 in just 18 games with Kris Leek and Calum Miles leading the way with seven and six respectively while Matthew Prosser has five.
The teams met at Plough Road on October 17 last year, when Goytre emerged winners from a seven-goal thriller and another success here will be their 13th of the campaign.
The capital side began the season well with a couple of consecutive wins, but precious little as gone right since - although they beat visiting Penybont 3-2 last weekend.

Stafford Common, Kingsbridge: Garden Village (16) Monmouth Town (12).
While Monmouth will be clear favourites to win this match-up, success is badly needed as they have slipped down the table to just above the drop zone.
It's obvious what the problem is because The Kingfishers are the top scorers among the bottom 12 sides while the 46 goals conceded is the highest in the entire division.
Indeed only the hosts, with 56 from three games less, have shipped more and that obviously lends to the theory that Monmouth should win this game.
Garden Village picked up only their second point when drawing 1-1 at Afan Lido two weeks ago, but reverted to type in being beaten 5-0 at home by Goytre next time out.

Centre of Sporting Excellence, Ystrad Mynach: Risca United (11) v Cardiff Metropolitan University (1).
These teams have an identical recent record of three wins from their last four league games and that form has helped Risca climb away from danger.
They can't, however, rest of their laurels and they will be very much aware the table-topping visitors will be a hard nut to crack.
Risca were impressive in winning 2-0 at Cambrian & Clydach last Saturday, a game which was their first league match since a same-scoreline defeat of visiting Briton Ferry Llansawel back in early December.
The students, managed by former Wales and Nottingham Forest defender Christian Edwards, are seeking promotion to the Welsh Premiership and like Risca play their home games on a 3G surface

This is a crucial clash because elsewhere, table-topping Pontypridd Town host second-placed Caerau while it will be third v fifth when Bridgend Street entertain capital rivals STM Sports.
Should those two games end all square, then an Abergavenny win here will certainly boost their hopes of promotion to Division Two at the first time of asking.
Their squad will include 19-year-old Lewis Jones, a former regular with Newport County's youth side, as Abergavenny seek a 12th win from their 16th league fixture.

Mount Pleasant Park, Beddau: Cwm Welfare (9) v Caerleon (8).
Caerleon have remained unbeaten in their last three matches, the only ocassions they have managed to play since losing 5-2 at Treowen Stars as long ago as October 24.
Overall, however, the sequence is stretched to five because of League Cup wins at Llanelli Town and Bridgend-based Bettws.
They have enough matches in hand to earn a top-six spot and trail second-placed Caerau by 15 points - but have played four fixtures less.
Whatever the outcome is here, it's not expected to be a 0-0 draw as in the 13 league fixtures which Cwm have played, there have been no fewer than 70 goals scored - 36 for and 34 against.

Panteg House, Griffithstown: Panteg (13) v Bettws (Bridgend) (12).
With the number of teams to be relegated not know at this stage, but it could be as many as five or six, it's of paramount importance that Panteg don't lose this game.
Indeed a draw would be something of a set-back, although it must be explained Panteg have enough matches in hand to move above the four teams immediately above them
They have played the least amount, 11, in the entire division and earned a fine, 2-0 away success over Llantwit Major last weekend.
On the same afternoon, Bettws were losing for a third consecutive time, 4-1 at Caerleon, and that outcome came just a

Athletic Ground: Treharris Athletic Western (17) v Newport Civil Service (18).
The Bettws-based club has recently been busy in recruiting five players in an attempt to stop a dire record of eight successive defeats.
Their only win came was 3-1 at Lliswerry back in late August, although this game does offer them a reasonable chance to post a second success.
Treharris are five points better off having played two fixtures more and start here on the back of last Saturday's 3-1 defeat at Lliswerry.

Bush Park: Treowen Stars (14) v Lliswerry (6).
Manager Simon Evans' men put in a decent display when drawing 2-2 at fellow-strugglers Ely Rangers last time out, but it's victories they need now.
There are some who are claiming Lliswerry are in a false position because they have played far many games than most - 19.
But two wins from their last three league fixtures means they are there on merit and they will start favourites here to land another.
