HUW GRIFFITHS knows Cefn Druids need to be wary of Aberystwyth Town - because they have the capability to instantly forget their mauling at the hands of The New Saints.

Most teams would suffer something of a hangover after being thumped 10-1 at home - as Aber were by the reigning champions on Monday - but Griffiths feels they have the mindset to shrug off such a defeat.

“They don’t care about momentum like most of the league,” said Griffiths ahead of tonight’s clash at The Rock. “They are happy to win one, lose one or even lose two and then go on a run of four wins. They don’t draw.”

Griffiths is also not reading too much into Aberystwyth conceding 10 against TNS after seeing his Ancients hit for seven by the same opposition on Boxing Day last year.

“They’ve gone out to try and win the game,” said Griffiths of Aberystwyth. “They’ve conceded early and still gone for it, and they’ve conceded four goals in the last 10 minutes.

“TNS are more than capable of doing that to teams and they were on the back of a defeat.”

Griffiths and Druids learnt from their 7-0 defeat to Saints last term, and the former Chester City assistant feels Aberystwyth will be wiser for the experience.

He continued. “They will fancy their chances against us. They will also see where they were vulnerable and learn from it. We lost 7-0 to TNS and we learned things that we needed to improve on and I’m sure they will as well.”

Druids go into the encounter unbeaten in the league after following up last Friday’s 3-1 win over Airbus with a 1-1 draw against Caernarfon on Monday.

Griffiths, who will welcome Joash Nembhard, Naim Arsan and Tyrone Ofori, pictured, back to his squad, added: “If we can win then it’s magnificent. If we get a point then the unbeaten run continues.”

Former Aber striker John Owen has left Druids by mutual consent after failing to feature this term.

Current Aber attacker Marc Williams, meanwhile, issued an apology for Monday’s performance, tweeting: “Not only did we let everyone associated with the club down but also ourselves. The beauty of this game is there is always next week to put things right.”
