Llandudno host TNS in first home game in over a month

By Geraint Roberts

Llandudno welcome Welsh Premier League holders TNS to the Giant Hospitality stadium on Saturday in a game that kicks off the Christmas period.

“I was bitterly disappointed with Saturday’s result, it was probably the worst I’ve felt during this difficult period.” Iwan Williams

TNS find themselves in an unfamiliar position being five points off leaders Connah’s Quay Nomads and will be itching for victory on Saturday.

Last week, we suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Newtown, despite Matty Williams’ brilliant first half equaliser.

Llandudno have played TNS twice already this season and both times suffered damaging defeats, one in the league and one in the Nathaniel MG Cup Quarter-Final.

The weekend’s game comes before a double header against Caernarfon Town on Boxing Day and New Years’ Day, and the lads will be hoping to go into those games in the best possible way with a positive performance against the holders.

Manager Iwan Williams has said he felt the lowest he’s felt during this difficult period after failing to pick up at least a point from Newtown.

“I was bitterly disappointed with Saturday’s result, it was probably the worst I’ve felt during this difficult period.”

“But the lads were just as hurt. We worked so hard to get back into it but just can’t seem to score when we’re on top.” Said the manager.

Iwan said this game is an opportunity for his players to challenge themselves.

“It’s a game they should want to play in and want to challenge themselves. We are down to the bare bones in terms of players and numbers, but we have to show heart.”

“January is around the corner also and I will be demanding of them. We have to find that elusive win from somewhere.” Said Iwan.

The players will need to be at their best to get a result against TNS, but the manager says that nobody should fear them.

“TNS will be a wounded animal but we can’t fear them. We will have a game plan and the lads have to work their hardest in order to get something out of the game.”

Iwan remains positive and optimistic that the players and the club as a whole can turn our fortunes around, with some new faces coming in when the window opens next month.

“We have already agreed terms with two players, with a third really close. They will potentially be the difference.”

“I’m proud of the fact that they want to come in and help me and us get out of this. It’ll be a fantastic achievement if we can and pat of the reason why they want to come in is that it potentially has a story to it.”
“I’m a big believer we can get out of it, and it’s important we all believe as a club.” Said Iwan.
The whole club are itching to put an end to this poor run and are looking forward to being back at home on Saturday, in what will no doubt be a challenging game for the lads.
