The home dugout looked very different on Sunday as Aberystwyth Town Women beat Abergavenny 4-1. With manager Gavin Allen suspended, assistant Matty Jones was in charge on the sidelines - and he admits he had a few nerves in the days before the match.
"I felt a little bit of pressure in the week - it was on my mind," he said. "As it got closer I was a little bit nervous, just because I wanted to do well and obviously I want the team to do well. I felt like I had to be more vocal because Gav is quite vocal on the side, and I knew I had to step up.
"It was nice to be able to lead on my own - but I did miss Gav, having Gav next to me, his advice, both of us communicating together."
It helped that the Seasiders got such a resounding win, with goals from Shauna Chambers, Gwenllian Jones (2) and Libby Isaac.
"I was very happy with the result and the performance, in the second half especially," added Jones. "I was a bit frustrated at half-time with the perfomance from the first half but it was nice to be able to go in leading. I said to them we've played better in some games and lost!
"To be able to score four goals is something that we've struggled with this season so it was nice to be able to create clear-cut chances and put them away. It's frustrating that we didn't score more, but one step at a time. Four goals is always good to get."
Jones is, however, the next one to head to the sidelines - suspended after being sent off in the FAW Women's Cup match against Connah's Quay. He will miss out on the trip to Wrexham.
"I would rather be there than be watching," he said. "I'm a bit gutted, really. It is a big game - we want a cup run. I think it's really important that we go as far as we can in the Welsh Cup, maybe all the way, we're more than capable."
