A POWER failure might be the only reason that Cefn Druids’ goalless draw at Aberystwyth Town is remembered.

A lively first-half failed to deliver any goals, and there was little prospect of either side scoring in a second period that was devoid of inspiration.

Aberystwyth boss Matthew Bishop conceded that the contest “wasn’t a classic” and opposite number Huw Griffiths was of a similar opinion.

“It will be lost in the archives,” said Griffiths of the stalemate. “In fairness, we created a couple of chances in the first-half and could have been two or three-one up.

“But the second-half was dire. There were two teams cancelling each other out and we didn’t play as much football as we have been.”

Griffiths was pleased to see his side, who have little to play for between now and the end of the season, extend their unbeaten run to six games.

“The lads have nothing to play for, but they weren’t willing to get beaten and that’s great to see,” continued Griffiths.

“We shouldn’t get beaten by teams down near the bottom and we showed that we are a match for an Aber side chasing seventh.”

There was some bad news for Druids as the in-form Jordan Evans was replaced midway through the first-half with a suspected broken wrist.

Griffiths said: “He’s gone over and landed on it, and he wasn’t in a good way.

"He was starting to come into some really good consistent form and we missed him when he went off, he provided us with a natural left-footed option."

Next up for Druids is a home clash with Carmarthen, who came from a goal down to beat Llanelli 3-1.

Tristan Jenkins gave the already relegated Reds a 15th minute lead, but that was quickly cancelled out by Luke Bowen, before Liam Thomas turned the game on its' head.

Bowen added his second and the Old Gold's third goal late on.

Adam Roscrow and Will Evans scored the goals as Cardiff Met won 2-1 at Llandudno to climb up to seventh. Mark Connolly scored his 100th top-flight goal for the losing side.
