“We however know what’s at stake and have a squad who are now completely pulling in the same direction.”
George Harry’s brace and a goal from Ben Clark was enough to see off Carmarthen Town, and close the gap between us and safety.
Yalany Baio and Sameron Dool both made their home debuts last weekend and both will be looking to continue their good start with the club.
Cardiff Met are top of the Play Off Conference and have recently won the Nathaniel MG Cup, meaning a tough ask is ahead of Llandudno this weekend.
Manager Iwan Williams missed last weekend’s games due to personal reasons, but was delighted with his squad after the victory.
“I was ecstatic! I didn’t catch up with the game due to personal issues until mid-way through the second half, so was then glued to the phone for the remainder! I was gutted I couldn’t be there but I had every belief that we would win. Maybe I need to stay away more often!” Said Iwan.
Llandudno have played Cardiff Met twice this season and managed to pick up a smash and grab win away from home back in September, with Toby Jones scoring the winner in the second half.
The reverse fixture was far more comfortable for Cardiff Met, as they ran out 3-0 winners at the Giant Hospitality Stadium, and the manager knows how tough this task ahead is.
“Met will be a very tough game. I have huge respect for their manager and he’s one of the best tacticians I know. But we’ve done a job on them there before so there’s no reason why we can’t go there in high spirits and look to do the same again.” Said Iwan.
“They’re a good side, with great players, but if you asked Christian whether he would call his season a successful one he would strongly disagree with you. They are for me a top three side and If they wouldn’t have suffered the injuries they have, they would be up there for me.”
“We however know what’s at stake and have a squad who are now completely pulling in the same direction.” Said the manager.
New signings Yalany Baio and Sameron Dool have impressed so far, and Iwan praises the both of them for what they have brought to the team.
“Baio and Dool are good, honest lads with fantastic work ethic. Baio is like a tooth ache! Always on your toes and you would hate to play against him and he’s a great character.”
“He needs to stop wearing aftershave to training though as the bibs are humming after him!” Joked Iwan.
“Dool is only 19 years old and is a player. He will be very exciting in a few years to come and has already shown glimpses thus far.”
“They have come in not being part of the disappointment that we’ve had so far, so are fearless and emotionless in their approach. I’m convinced that both can help drag us out of trouble.” Said the boss.
Llandudno are currently seven points behind safety and the situation looks a lot more positive than it did a couple of weeks ago, and if the players manage to bring something back to Llandudno tomorrow, the optimism will only grow.
