Match Preview: Druids v Penybont FC

Tomorrow afternoon, Druids return to The Rock to face Penybont FC. It is shaping up to be a tight affair with both sides looking for their first win of the season.

The Bont, currently in 9th position with 4 points have had a tough start to the campaign but have managed to draw with last season’s top 3 in TNS, Connah’s Quay and Bala Town. They are still looking for their first win of the season and will be coming to The Rock up for the battle and determined to make that happen.

The last time Penybont travelled to The Rock back in October 2020 they came away with a 2-0 win, thanks to goals from captain Kane Owen and Mael Davies. However, it ended all square on the return fixture at the SDM Glass Stadium with a memorable volley from Druid’s defender Jacob Wise at the death to draw the game 1-1.

Druids are currently looking to bounce back from a defeat away at Caernarfon Town last Friday. A promising first half performance from Druids saw us go in at the break all square having made some decent opportunities up front. However, throughout the second half, we were unable to continue our positive play, something we will be looking to rectify tomorrow afternoon.

It will be a welcome return for centre half Phil Mooney after serving his 3-match suspension for a red card at Flint Town. Andy Brown has also returned to training following a slight bone injury in his foot. The lads have trained well this week, upping the intensity and will be looking to carry that into the match tomorrow afternoon.

We are also happy to announce the re-opening of the clubhouse for drinks and food on matchdays and look forward to seeing our fans back in there tomorrow!

It is shaping up to be a great day at The Rock and we can’t wait to get out there!

More than just a football club.
