“We are an honest group who know we're on a bad run, who are desperate to turn it around”
After the disappointing defeat to Carmarthen last time out, Iwan Williams will be hoping the break will have done his lads good and can come back refreshed.
With the news that Gary Taylor-Fletcher has gone back to Bangor to be their manager, Iwan will be looking to his attacking players to prove to him why they’re at this club.
The manager has said that the break has been positive for his lads because it’s allowed them to train hard for this game.
“After losing, especially on the run we’re on, you always want the next game to come as quickly as possible. But the break has given us time to reflect and train hard. We are an honest group who know we’re on a bad run and are desperate to turn it around.”
The recent news of Taylor-Fletcher leaving the club will make Iwan need to change his starting eleven around, and Iwan doesn’t deny that losing him is a massive blow.
“Losing Fletch was a massive blow but again upon reflection he was always going to be a short term fix. He scored three goals but no points were picked up so we have to look at ourselves as a group and come up with solutions on how to find that one win which will change everything.”
Llandudno beat Glan Conwy in a friendly last Thursday in an attempt to keep up the spirits and match readiness.
Connah’s Quay sit at the top of the Welsh Premier League, a point ahead of holders TNS, and Iwan Williams has said we will have to dig in if we want to pick up the points.
The Nomads have been busy recently, playing in the Scottish Irn Bru Challenge Cup in Hampden Park, as well as losing against Cardiff Met in the Nathaniel MG Cup Semi-Final.
“There is never an easy time to play an Andy Morrison team. Tomorrow is about rolling our sleeves up and digging in.” Said Iwan.
“We will learn a lot about our character tomorrow more than any other game, The players have worked hard this week though and the belief is what is needed.”
Llandudno are also happy to announce the loan signing of goalkeeper Connor Roberts from TNS who is available.
“Everyone is available and fit. We have signed Connor Roberts who is available for selection so we have a few headaches in terms of selection, which is a nice problem to have.”
“Connor comes in to add competition to Shaun Pearson who we’ve had concerns with regarding niggles of late. With us having no cover in the goalkeeping department we now have two fantastic keepers battling against each other until January, which can only be a positive.”
It’s a trip to Briton Ferry in the Welsh Cup after we play Connah’s Quay tomorrow, and the squad is desperate to find the elusive win to start of the Christmas period in the best possible way.
