Tomorrow afternoon, Druids welcome Haverfordwest to The Rock in almost our second leg tie against the Bluebirds. We played out an entertaining 1-1 draw last Saturday with Joe Faux’s second half goal cancelled out by a freekick in the dying seconds to share the points between the sides. Tomorrows match is another rearranged fixture from earlier in the season, therefore we play our opponents twice in a week and will hopefully take all 3 points this time.
Haverfordwest were scheduled to play on Tuesday night against Barry Town, but after advice from Public Health Wales regarding a COVID 19 related issue, the match was postponed. They are therefore coming into this match fresh with a week’s rest and will likely start the game with plenty of energy. Druids will have to improve from recent performances and be organised from the off.
The player from our opponents who impressed last weekend was midfielder Elliot Scotcher who scored the last minute freekick to earn his side a point. Scotcher was solid in midfield, winning first and second balls for his side and showing a good work rate throughout. Druids midfield will need to match that and challenge every ball if we are to compete tomorrow.
Druids are coming off a tough run after a 2-1 loss to Caernarfon Town on Tuesday night. We have had little time to recover between games with Joe Faux, Jacob Wise and Sam Phillips all doubts for tomorrow through injury. However, there are now opportunities for other players to step up and make a difference which is what we will be hoping for. Druids have by no means given up and will continue fighting in a season which still has a long way to go.
The player to watch from us is long standing Druids fullback Naim Arsan. One of the most consistent players at the club, Naim has shown his technical ability to get out of tight spots and also contributed with a goal earlier in the season against Bala Town. One of our club captains, Naim and co will need to rally the troops to get a response from Tuesday nights disappointment and start pushing us up the table.
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Covid-19 related restrictions there will be no fans in attendance, but follow our Twitter page for live match updates!
Come on you Druids!
