We are in action on Friday evening this week as the squad make the short journey into the capital to face a Cardiff Metropolitan University side level on points with us after the opening 16 games of the JD Cymru Premier League season.
Having narrowly lost our last 2 league games despite spirited performances from the players, Gavin Chesterfield will be looking to secure all 3 points this Friday as we move into a busy festive period.
Met’ have become somewhat familiar opponents for us this season, with the match at 19:45 on Friday evening becoming the fourth time we have faced the Archers in all competitions. Unfortunately, Met’ ran out victorious on all three previous meetings this season, with 2 wins in the cup competitions at the Cyncoed Campus Stadium and a victory for the Archers (1-0) in the reverse league fixture at Jenner Park in October. Indeed, Gavin and the players will be keen to get the better of a Met’ side this weekend, who have become something of ‘bogey’ team for the dragons so far this term.
We currently find ourselves on 19 points, just 3 points off the top-half of the table but, similarly, only 3 points above the relegation zone. With both sides level on points going into the fixture, the match under the lights at Cyncoed on Friday is likely to be a crucial one in determining our ultimate league position with just 6 games of the first-phase of the JD Cymru Premier League remaining.
As always, your support at Cardiff Metropolitan University this Friday evening would be much appreciated by all at the club.
