#WFL2 PREVIEW: Newport City v Llanelli Town

Llanelli Town will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to the season away at Newport City. 


Welsh League superstar Lee Trundle will know of his surroundings as he played for Swansea City a decade ago in an FA Cup 1st Round tie, where he opened the scoring in a 3-1 victory for the Swans.

Newport City have no injuries or suspensions whilst Llanelli Town are without Ant Finzlebach.

Newport City joint-manager Sam Houldsworth: 

On the wobbly early season start which saw them on a winless run: 

“It’s clear to see we didn’t have the best of starts to the season and we were leaking goals. We have some new faces in at the moment and our team is still trying to gel as we are behind other teams in terms of a finished squad.”

When asked on the long-term future and ambition of the club.

“The long term plan is for players at Newport City to enjoy their football, playing it in the right way.

We want to get some local support behind us and the only way we can do that is by playing good football.”

When asked if Newport City would adopt a new game plan against Llanelli and the threat of Lee Trundle. 

“We haven’t prepared any differently to any other game.

“We aren’t expecting three points aainst Llanelli but we will be looking to play some football as we want to build a team who have confidence in playing.

Our defence will be set up the same way as it was last week, we can’t be just be looking at our defence though for this game, we will need all 11 players to make sure we are a match for Llanelli.

Llanelli Town manager Andy Hill: 

On Llanelli’s unbeaten start in league and cup this season

“If I had to give a reason why we are undefeated it would have to be the structure and discipline that has been installed into the team. The players take everything on board, I’m really pleased for them.”

On winning Club of the Month for August and September

“It’s really pleasing when the team gets recognition for what they are achieving. It proves that we are going in the right direction, recognition is what drives us on.”

On opponents Newport City

“We have approached Saturday’s game like any other game, we take eah game as it comes week by week. We have been working on improving something in training and hopefully that will help us achieve maximum points this Saturday.”
