Llandudno face Newtown in Welsh Premier League clash

By Geraint Roberts

Llandudno travel to Newtown in an attempt to turn around their fortunes after picking up their first win since the start of October.

“Momentum, morale, confidence, the dynamics, one win will be huge and hopefully that will come on Saturday night” Iwan Williams

Newtown are doing well in the league this season but did suffer a shock defeat at the hands of Rhyl last weekend in the Welsh Cup.

The last time these two sides met was back in August when we played out a goalless draw at the Giant Hospitality Stadium, in a game that could have gone both ways.

Connor Roberts and Ben Clark missed out on the game against Briton Ferry due to the terms of their loan contracts from TNS, but both are back in contention this Saturday.

As well as us, Newtown will be itching to get all three points on Saturday with their last league came ending up as a 4-1 defeat against Barry Town.

A victory on Saturday could allow us to leapfrog Llanelli Town who play on Friday night and get off the bottom of the table.

Manager Iwan Williams says the victory over Briton Ferry in the Welsh Cup has given the club a huge boost.

“There’s always been a spirit amongst us. I keep saying to people that if you came to our training and witness the morale, work ethic, even the quality then you couldn’t understand how we’re in the predicament we’re in.”

“Confidence is the answer to that, and to win at Briton Ferry in the manner we did will give us a huge boost.” Said Iwan.

Newtown currently sit in sixth position in the league and it looks like they will continue to battle it out for that elusive top 6 spot until the first phase of the season is over.

“It’ll be a very tough game, Newtown are flying and are doing very well. Chris Hughes is a good manager and has had a solid base of players for a while now.”

“It’s a game that’s live on TV and one we can definitely look forward to.” Said the manager.
Llandudno have a full squad to choose from with, as said before, Connor Roberts and Ben Clark being back in contention.

“Ben and Connor are back in contention. Team selection will be decided upon late because of one or two niggles, but we’re going there with a full squad at our disposal.”

The manager said his players will be going to Newtown looking for the three points and hopefully be able to find that elusive win in the league.

“We’re going there to win a game, we’re in a dog fight but we have men who will battle. One win changes everything.”

“Momentum, morale, confidence, the dynamics, one win will be huge and hopefully that will come on Saturday night.” Said the manager.

The game will be broadcasted live on S4C’s Sgorio on Saturday night, three points would allow the club to go into the Christmas period full of confidence with more big games coming thick and fast.
