Steelmen look to earn promotion party

EBBW Vale will be presented with the Championship trophy if they beat Beddau at Eugene Cross Park this afternoon (kick-off 2.30pm), writes Chris Kirwan.
It would be the shock of the season if the strugglers force the champagne to be put back in the fridge until next weekend's trip to Bridgend Athletic.
The Steelmen, who are set for their fourth title on the spin, have won all 20 of their league fixtures and will be fired up to get the job done on their own turf rather than the rather less celubrious Newbridge Fields.
Of course, the big prize isn't the silverware but Ebbw's return to the Premiership.
At the other end of the table there is a fierce battle to avoid the drop and bottom club Blackwood can make it a four-team scrap rather than a three-team tussle if they beat Tondu.
It really is a must-win encounter for the Glan-yr-Afon Park outfit if they are to avoid being cut adrift.
Pontypool still have an outside shot of finishing as runners-up but they need to take the spoils on their travels to third-placed Bargoed while Newbridge travel to Cardiff Met.
