Tomorrow afternoon Druids make another trip to south Wales to face in form Penybont FC at the SDM Glass Stadium.
Another tough away fixture for Druids tomorrow as we travel to 4th placed Penybont FC. Our opponents are currently in a good run of form, with two wins and a draw away at Connah’s Quay from their last three fixtures. With the top six very close at the moment, Bont will be looking to continue their winning ways to ensure they are up there come the split.
Their most recent fixture was away at Caernarfon town last Saturday where they got an impressive 2-1 win courtesy of a 90th minute winner from Keane Watts. It will be a tough test for Druids tomorrow, but one we are ready and up for!
We have a good record at the SDM Glass Stadium in recent years which should give us some confidence going into the match. Of our last two fixtures there, we won 3-2 and more recently a 1-1 draw back in November last year. A memorable result after centre half Jacob Wise smashed in an amazing volley from the edge of the area in the 87th minute, to give us a share of the spoils.
We are coming off a frustrating 3-1 home defeat to Cardiff Met last Saturday. After bringing the game back to 1-1 in the second half, Druids were on top and looking for the winner. But two mistakes at the back late on gifted Met two goals and all 3 points. Disappointing for Druids. But after a good week’s training, if we can minimise the mistakes tomorrow, we have a good chance of coming away with a positive result.
Some team news now. Good news for Druids as Stef Edwards and Niall Flint are back available after absences. Emmanuel Agyemang is a doubt after picking up a knock in training but will be hoping to be fit come tomorrow.
Another long coach journey for the lads tomorrow and a big test against good opposition. We are looking forward to the challenge and will go there ready to put in 100% effort and get a positive result.
Come on you Druids!
