Match Preview: Druids v Holyhead Hotspur FC

A long-awaited return to Welsh Cup action this Saturday as we welcome JD Cymru North side Holyhead Hotspur to The Rock.

As we are a club rich in history, we have a proud record in the Welsh Cup, winning the competition 8 times and competing in 14 finals, most recently in 2012. It will be another opportunity for the lads to set things right after Tuesday’s defeat and progress further in a great competition!

Our opponents are coming off a 2-1 away win last Saturday against Holywell Town in the Cymru North and will be up for a battle tomorrow when they come to The Rock. Holyhead have also made a few deadline day signings to bolster their squad who may feature in tomorrow’s match. They currently sit in 12th position in their league and will be looking to give a good account of themselves and give Druids a proper test.

We come into this match off a disappointing loss away at Newtown on Tuesday night. Luckily the games are coming thick and fast and there is an opportunity for us to put things right tomorrow in the cup. Fortunately, Phil Mooney is eligible to play as he serves his 3 match suspension in the league only and will help sure up our backline. Stef Edwards is also aiming to be fit after recovering from a muscle strain. Jake Hampson, Aaron Pomeyie and Emmanuel Agyemang are all doubts through injury.

It will be a great to have the Welsh Cup return to The Rock tomorrow afternoon and we look forward to seeing you all there to cheer on the lads!

Come on you Druids!
