HUW GRIFFITHS is encouraged by the flexibility of his Cefn Druids squad.

The Ancients suffered a second consecutive Cymru Premier defeat of the season on Tuesday as they were beaten 1-0 at Connah’s Quay Nomads.

But Griffiths was pleased with large parts of his side’s performance at the Deeside Stadium, and believes he has a squad capable of causing any opponent problems.

“I’m confident we’ve got all aspects covered,” said Griffiths. “Not every game will be like the one against Nomads where we knew there wasn’t going to be more than four or five passes made at any one time.

“We opted to go with the likes of James (Davies), Tyrone (Ofori) and Rami (Howarth), but we were able to bring on the likes of Pape (Ibrahima Diakhite) and Cody Ruberto to cause different types of problems, especially when we were looking for a goal late in the game.

“We have options to play a physical more direct game, or we can play quicker agile players depending on the opponent or the surface. We could have the biggest team in the league if I wanted to go that way.

“I’m really pleased that we’ve got the ability to play two different styles and that we can pick one, but have players on the bench able to change to the other.”

Which way will Druids go against a notoriously powerful Carmarthen outfit as they head to The Rock tomorrow afternoon?

“I’m not sure yet,” answered Griffiths. “I don’t know whether to go with the quick ones or go out to batter them.

“The good thing is that I have different options available.”

Regardless of who Griffiths selects, the Druids boss wants to see his players show greater desire in the opposition box.

“I’m disappointed we didn’t score against Nomads,” said Griffiths. “We defend with so much desire and I want that same desire in attack. I want players to put their body on the line to try and score.”

Joash Nembhard and Ryan Kershaw are both doubts for Druids after picking up hamstring problems in midweek, which could mean recalls for Charley Edge and Joe Faux, while Alec Mudimu may return after international duty with Zimbabwe.
