Aberystwyth Town vs Cefn Druids
JD Cymru Premier
Friday 28th January
Live Commentary - Welsh: Radio Aber, English: Radio Aber
Aberystwyth Town are back at Park Avenue for the first time in 7 weeks tonight as Antonio Corbisiero’s side host Cefn Druids in the Seasiders first home game of 2022.
Both teams tasted defeat on their return to league action last weekend, following the enforced winter break due to rise of the Omicron CV-19 variant, with Druids going down 3-1 at home to Caernarfon and Aber coming back from Penybont empty handed.
The team were backed by a loud Black & Green Army at the SDM Glass Stadium and Manager Corbisiero is hoping that a similar level of support to last weekend will help his team to get a positive result tomorrow night on home turf:
“Hopefully that gave the boys motivation to realise that the fans are 100% committed and behind them, and I firmly believe that we can look forward to the game with Cefn Druids next week and get the 3 points we vitally need.”
Tomorrow night’s opponents, Cefn Druids, are having a tough season so far and currently sit in 12th position in the table, having registered 2 points from their opening 18 games.
Joint top-scorer Charley Edge is available once again following suspension, as is Emmanuel Agyemang, although Joe Faux & former Seasider George Harry have recently departed The Rock for pastures new.
The two sides have already met twice this season, with Aber triumphing 4-1 at home in the Welsh Cup in September thanks to a Mathew Jones hat-trick and another from Owain Jones, whilst a Lee Jenkins header was enough to secure all three points at The Rock in October.
This will be Aber’s 999th match in the Cymru Premier, with the 1000th coming on Tuesday night at home to Haverfordwest County – the first of a double header against the Bluebirds with the return match in two weeks at Bridge Meadow.
Its another Friday night under the lights at Park Avenue and tickets are available at £7 to Adults, £4 to Concessions with Under 16’s free!
