Cefn Druids up next for Llandudno as battle for safety continues

By Geraint Roberts

Llandudno travel to Cefn Druids on Friday night in what is another crucial game in the fight for safety

The Seasiders moved off the bottom of the Welsh Premier League after the win and now find themselves 9 points behind 10th placed Carmarthen.

A win against 9th placed Cefn Druids would close the gap between the two teams to 7 points, whilst Carmarthen play Aberystwyth tomorrow night too.

Llandudno suffered disappointment last weekend in the JD Welsh Cup Quarter-Final after they lost 8-1 to The New Saints, but positive league form gives optimism ahead of the next game.

Assistant manager Mark Cowan said despite a tough game against TNS, the Cefn Druids game always carried more importance.

“We knew last weekend was going to be tough and we wanted to win the game, but in terms of importantance this game is the bigger one for us. The lads have dusted themselves down and responded superbly well in training this week.”

“As with the Llanelli game, it's another cup final, Derby match, all rolled into one we have to win draws don't help us nothing but 3 points is the target.”

Cefn Druids also picked up a massive win last time out against Carmarthen, but Cowan believes the squad have enough quality to look to bring back all three points.

“They will have been boosted by a fantastic result away at Carmarthen, so they're tails will be up.”

“We are under no illusion how difficult it will be to get the win but we have to go into the game confident that we get the win we believe in the quality in this squad we are fighting all the way to stay up.”

Yalany Baio, Sameron Dool, Les Davies and Ben Clark return to the Llandudno team after being ineligible to play against TNS, whilst Alun Webb and George Harry will both be looking to continue some good recent form in front of goal.

“Mike Pearson misses out due to Suspension Tom Owens is unavailable and Zyaac Edwards through injury, but we welcome back Sameron Dool, Yalany Baio, Les Davies and Ben Clark who were all ineligible for the cup tie last weekend.” Said Mark.

After the game we will have reached the half way point of Phase Two and we will undoubtedly have a better picture of what is needed to be done in order to stay up this season.

Kick-off is at 19:45 at The Rock Stadium at Cefn Druids, get down and support the lads if you can, in what is the biggest game of the season so far.
