“We know luck is against us at the moment but I’m a firm believer that you have to work hard to create your own luck”
Despite narrowly losing away last weekend, Llandudno created an abundance of opportunities which could have easily made them run out as deserved winners, but the luck, and in particular the woodwork, went against the Seasiders.
Left-back Steve Thomas grabbed Llandudno’s first goal of the season during the game and the home side will now be looking to take the opportunities they create this weekend in front of their crowd.
Manager Iwan Williams knows the importance of tomorrow’s game and says the squad is still very together.
“It’s a must win game. The message and the task is clear. We have been away for four of our first five competitive games thus far so it’s vital we make our home a fortress.” Said Williams
“The squad have trained well and the camaraderie aplenty. We know luck is against us at the moment but I’m a firm believer that you have to work hard to create your own luck.”
“We are a close knit group and although a lot of people are writing us off already, we know we are capable of competing and if anything the negativity has spurred us on this week.
Visitors Barry Town sit in an impressive fourth place after the first four games after picking up seven out of a possible 12 points.
Their only defeat of the league season so far has come on the opening day when they were comfortably beaten by last season’s champions TNS, but have since beaten Bala and Connah’s Quay as well as drawing with Llanelli.
Barry’s star man this season has been the former Southampton striker Kayne McLaggon, who has scored three goals so far this season.
The two sides met four times during last season’s campaign, with this weekend’s away side winning three of them, although Llandudno did come out victorious almost exactly 12 months ago.
There are a couple of injury doubts according to the Seasiders manager but the aim is most definitely to go out and get the victory.
“The dialogue amongst our team meetings has been honest and one captivated by frustration but the work ethic in training has been second to none.”
“We have a couple of injury doubts but are approaching the game with the intent of trying to win it, nothing else, nothing less.”
