HUW GRIFFITHS praised a disciplined Cefn Druids display as they played out another draw at Newtown.

The fixture at Latham Park finished goalless, meaning that the two teams have now drawn their last five matches at the home of the Robins - and seven in the last nine at any venue.

“I had a chuckle to myself after the game,” joked Griffiths. “I wasn’t expecting another draw.”

Both goalkeepers were called into action, while Alec Mudimu hit the crossbar for Druids, who pleased their manager after producing a solid away performance.

“We did really well, it was a good disciplined performance,” added Griffiths. “The lads were very disciplined in what they did throughout.

“Newtown had 65-70 per cent possession in the second-half, but we played a low block and allowed them to have the ball in-front of us, and they didn’t really trouble us too much.

“Carrots (Mike Jones) has made two really good stops and their goalkeeper has made one, while they had three corners late on that we dealt with.

“We showed resolve to keep the ball out of our net when we might have gone under last season.

“Newtown do really well at home, a lot of their points come from their home form, so it was pleasing to put in the performance we did and get a draw.”

The transfer window closes at the end of the month for Cymru League teams with Druids boss Griffiths keen to add another new face if possible.

Joash Nembhard’s loan deal from The New Saints is set to be finalised in the coming days, with Griffiths adding: “I would like to get one more in before the end of the month.

“I want to add more competition to the group.”

Former Wrexham striker Marc Williams struck twice as Aberystwyth Town kicked off the campaign with a 3-2 home win over Carmarthen Town.

Liam Thomas put the Old Gold in-front, but Williams netted either side of the break to turn the game on its’ head.

Luke Boundford curled a fine third for the home side, before Luke Bowen set up a nervy finish with Carmarthen’s second of the game.
