Druids v Cardiff Met Match Preview
Tomorrow evening we host Cardiff Met at The Rock in our third fixture of Phase 2. Another big game for Druids and a chance to make things right after a poor result on Tuesday.
We go into this game only 2 points behind The Students and a win tomorrow would take us off the bottom of the Play-Off Conference and above our opponents. Cardiff Met played out a tight 2-2 draw with Newtown on Tuesday evening at the Cyncoed Campus where they felt they deserved all 3 points.
The Students dominated large parts of the second half against Newtown, however conceded two sloppy goals and were unable to take their chances to win the game
in the final minutes. They will be looking to be more organised and clinical tomorrow to get a positive result.
Druids simply didn’t show up on Tuesday night at Flint Town and will be looking for a big reaction against The Students. Consistency has been an issue for us this season as we have played some great football at times but need to show it more often. There is still a total of 24 points up for grabs for Druids, and we will be looking to earn as many as we can in these final 8 games and finish as high up the table as possible.
Both our fixtures against Cardiff Met from Phase 1 ended in a draw. However, being back at The Rock on Saturday, Druids have a great chance to finally get one over on The Students and get back on the right track for the remainder of Phase 2.
Some team news now: Joe Faux played 20 minutes on Tuesday night after recovering from a hamstring injury and should be available tomorrow. Ryan Kershaw and Cody Ruberto are both doubts while Iwan Cartwright and Sam Phillips are hoping to be fit for the game after picking up minor knocks against Flint.
All matches in the Cymru Premier will kick-off at 5:15pm tomorrow out of respect for HRH Prince Philip’s funeral at 3pm.
It should be a tight affair tomorrow at The Rock where one moment of quality could be the difference. We are ready to get back out there and make things right!
