Caersws boss looking for improvements despite lack of players
After a mixed week for Caersws manager Graham Evans, he is looking for a big improvement as his side travel to Porthmadog.
“The contrast in performance from last Saturday to Tuesday summed up our lack of consistency throughout the season. Credit to Penrhyn who came with a game plan, they were very disciplined defensively and took their chances when presented.
Our work rate and tempo of play were not anywhere near the same as against Gresford and we too often lacked creativity in the final third to open them up. When we did, we missed some great chances but saying that the three goals conceded were disappointing defensively.”
Evans was very pleased with the win at in-form Gresford and wants his team to perform like that every week.
“It was a very pleasing performance and the minimum level I believe we should be producing week in week out. The performance was full of energy, we looked dangerous every time we went forward and thoroughly deserved our win, if not a few more goals too!”
Caersws boss Graham Evans wants his team to show the same character and commitment as his side delivered at Gresford when they go to Porthmadog on the weekend.
“We’re under no illusions that it’ll be a difficult game, but it’s one that we’ll be going all out to win. Porthmadog have had a decent season and are a good side. Paps will have them fired up for it in the race for a top 5 finish and we’ll need to show the same character and commitment as we did at Gresford last Saturday if we are to complete the double over them.”
The Bluebirds boss wants to see his side put a string of results together to allow them to finish the season on a high.
“We’ve lacked consistency which has been disappointing and we’ve set a target to win our remaining games. “We’ve had a bad run of injuries again this season.
Thanks to our away form though we are still in the hunt for a top five finish, albeit we’re now reliant on others dropping points. Tuesday night was a setback but we’ve got to regroup and have set the lads a target of winning our remaining fixtures. We have 4 homes games left after Saturday’s final away game and we owe it our faithful home supporters, officials and ourselves to turn our disappointing home form on its head.”
Caersws will be without 9 players for the trip to Porthmadog.
“Where do I start! We’ve got 9 missing following the sendings off of Will Thomas and Paul Grant on Tuesday night. Mike Collister is unavailable and we’re still without the injured Mark Griffiths, Graham Jones, Lance Jones, Scott Williams, Jack Bermingham and Callum Hawthorne. However, Jack Hughes (illness) and Josh Hartrick (suspended) are both available for selection.”
