HUW GRIFFITHS has questioned the validity of Aberystwyth Town’s match winning goal against Cefn Druids.

With the game locked at 1-1 heading into the final three minutes, Geoff Kellaway was deemed to have scrambled the ball over the line, pictured, to hand Aberystwyth a crucial away win.

But Druids boss Griffiths was less than impressed with the decision, which cost his side their unbeaten start to the campaign.

“I’m not saying it hasn’t crossed the line, but could the linesman be sure it has? Was it clear and obvious?” questioned Griffiths. “We had some lads warming up and they couldn’t tell if it had crossed the line.

“The linesman had two or three bodies in his way and there is a slight delay before he flags for the goal.

“Carrots (Michael Jones) is adamant that it’s not crossed the line and it’s a very, very frustrating decision.

“I’m not saying the decision is wrong, but it’s a massive one that has cost us something out of the game.”

Cody Ruberto continued his impressive start to life at Druids by cancelling out Marc Williams’ opener for Aber, who went on to snatch victory late on.

Griffiths, who has sent John Owen on-loan to Porthmadog, was disappointed with his side’s display, saying: “They had a game plan, which was to sit off us and we lacked penetration with the possession we had.

“We lacked power and experience with Neil Ashton and Joash Nembhard unavailable and we weren’t good enough.”

Aberystwyth boss Matthew Bishop was delighted with his side’s victory as they put their 10-1 thumping at the hands of The New Saints firmly behind them.

“The players showed great character,” said Bishop.

“It’s not easy when you get beaten heavily, but the lads have bounced back in style.

“I think we thoroughly deserved the win.

“The last time we got a result here was probably about three years ago.

“It’s never an easy place to come to, but the lads have dug in, stuck to the game plan and been disciplined.

“We’ve created chances and taken two of them.”
