CROSS Keys bid for a fourth successive victory tomorrow when they host Bridgend (kick-off 12.30pm) in their second of six consecutive Principality Premiership games against opponents from the west.

Last Thursday saw Keys cruise to a commanding 41-15 victory over Neath to make it back-to-back wins under new Pandy Park head coach Morgan Stoddart.

Darren Hughes (2), Scott Evans, Leon Andrews, Phil Williams and skipper Scott Matthews crossed the whitewash in a dominant performance at the Gnoll.

That six-try triumph took Keys’ points tally so far under Stoddart to 82 in two outings – they also scored 41 in their National Cup tie against Championship side Bedlinog.

Bridgend, meanwhile, have just three points from their opening two encounters in the second part of the season, though both fixtures were always going to be tough.

In the first they lost 47-17 away to RGC 1404, and next up it was a 23-13 reverse at the hands of Cardiff.

While tomorrow’s clash is the first between the two sides this season, Keys boast the better record in recent meetings.

There were three wins for Keys in 2015-16, starting with an 18-0 victory in the Premiership, followed by a 20-13 cup success and then a 24-12 league triumph.

Last season saw Bridgend stop the rot when they came out on top 29-16 at the Brewery Field, before normal service was resumed following a hard-fought 16-13 outcome in front of the Pandy Park faithful.

Elsewhere in the Premiership this weekend, Merthyr go to Cardiff tonight, while tomorrow sees Aberavon, Bargoed, Llanelli and RGC 1404 entertain Swansea, Llandovery, Carmarthen Quins and Neath respectively.

There are no games in the Championship but leaders Pontypool have arranged a friendly at Division One West Central frontrunners Maesteg Quins (kick-off 12.15pm).
