Why it is absolutely essential Carmarthen Town record victory over relegation rivals Prestatyn Town?
The Old Gold have picked up just four points from a possible 39 so far this season and it is important they start picking up points and fast, starting with a win over relegation rivals Prestatyn Town on Saturday afternoon.
Carmarhten Town have really struggled to get going so far this season and are currently at the foot of the Welsh Premier League table, eight points adrift of safety and it is already an uphill task for Mark Aizlewood’s side to survive this season, despite there being only a couple of months of the season which have past.
The Old Gold have failed to score in their previous five encounter, losing four on the bounce. Aizlewood’s side have also failed to win in their last 10 games and confidence appears to be a big problem amongst the side at the moment.
A win on Saturday against Prestatyn Town is absolutely essential and it would mean they would close the gap on their relegation rivals to five points and it could well help to revitalise their season.
Aizlewood’s side have only recorded the one win this season and that was an impressive 4-0 away win at Bala Town and if they can replicate that on Saturday afternoon, it could help the Old Gold go on a much-needed winning streak.
The problem with Carmarthen is goals appear to be coming at a premium and in the 13 games they’ve played in the Welsh Premier League this season, they’ve scored on just 10 occasions and this is something Aizlewood must address if they want to turn their season around.
It has been proven they have goals amongst them with their shock win over Bala Town earlier on in the season but since that game they have managed to muster a mere four goals in 10 games, a stat which needs to be improved upon, especially if they want to stand any chance of staying in the Welsh Premier League this season.
With Christmas approaching, the Old Gold need to start improving on their performances in general as well as getting results to go alongside them.
It is still early days in the season but Saturday is already a monumental game for Aizlewood’s side and three points could well help the Old Gold push on in the Welsh Premier League and build momentum, especially with all four of their games being played at Richmond Park.
