Poll shows Labour maintaining lead in Wales

The latest Welsh opinion poll shows Labour maintaining its lead in Wales. For the first time, the results of the Welsh Barometer Poll have been weighted to reflect how likely people say they are to vote.

  • Labour 40%
  • Conservative 26%
  • UKIP 13%
  • Plaid Cymru 12%
  • Liberal Democrats 6%
  • Green 4%

The figures show little change since the last two Welsh polls, which were both carried out just before the televised debate by party leaders.

  • YouGov polled 1,143 Welsh adults for ITV Cymru Wales and Cardiff University, 13-15 April 2015.

Disappointing night for Welsh clubs as Cardiff, Newport and Wrexham fall to defeat

Cardiff, Newport and Wrexham all fell to defeat in this evening's round of fixtures in what proved to be a disappointing night for the Welsh sides.

Cardiff traveled to promotion chasing Ipswich and got off to the worst possible start - Freddie Sears netting after just 3 minutes at Portman Road.

Cardiff did equalise through an Eoin Doyle header, but goals form Cole Skuse and a last minute David Murphy strike sealed the win for Ipswich, who consolidate their place in the Championship play-off places.

In League 2 Newport suffered a knock to their play-off ambitions, going down 2-0 to Southend.

Goals from Cian Bolger and Stephen McLaughlin secured victory for the Shrimpers, who harbour their own promotion hopes. Newport slip to 9th following the defeat.

Meanwhile in the Conference Carl Darlington suffered his first defeat in charge of Wrexham with his side falling to a 2-1 defeat to relegation threatened Welling.

Andy Bishop's late goal wasn't enough for the Dragons, who remain in mid table.
