Druids v Caernarfon Match Preview
Tomorrow evening the 8th December, Druids face Caernarfon Town FC at The Rock in another midweek game under the lights. Back in early October we produced a great 2-1 win against our opponents at The Oval, but they will surely arrive tomorrow night looking to rectify that result. We also look forward to welcoming back former Druids boss Huw Griffiths to The Rock in what is shaping up to be a great fixture.
Caernarfon are coming off a disappointing 6-0 loss to Penybont last week where it seemed everything went wrong for the Canaries. There will surely be a reaction tomorrow night and Druids will need to be prepared for a battle. Our opponents sit 8th on the table and are in need of a few results if they are to push back up into the top 6.
The player to watch tomorrow night is Portuguese midfielder Paulo Mendes who signed for Caernarfon from Aberystwyth earlier this season. He is known for being solid defensively and breaking up play but also has 3 goals so far this season and can be a threat going forward. The Druids backline and midfield will need to be wary and organised.
Druids come into the game off a great performance away at Haverfordwest on Saturday where we felt we should have got all 3 points. The big talking point was Druids inability to finish the chances we created early in the game. As we all know, a Huw Griffith’s side will be solid defensively, so Druids will need to improve from last game and be more clinical with the chances we do create. However, there are plenty of positives from Saturday we can take into tomorrow night and hopefully build from.
The player to watch from Druids is midfielder Alex Darlington. The former TNS and 7-time Cymru Premier winner came into the side on Saturday and was one of the reasons we had so many chances in front of goal. He sees passes others don’t at times, and can hopefully create more for us tomorrow night that we capitalise on. Darlo likes to drift into pockets in front of defensive lines and show his creativity and technical ability on the ball.
Druids just have to keep building on past performances and hopefully tomorrow night we get all 3 points! Keep an eye on our Twitter page for live match updates and the game will also be streamed live on Sgorio’s Facebook and YouTube pages!
Come on you Druids!
