Why Cardiff Met have hit form just at the right time
Cardiff Met dismantled Barry Town United at home to earn a second successive European play-off final, so have they hit form at just the right time?
Absolutely. It was some performance from the students against the Linnets last time out and they will hope that will give them momentum going into Sunday’s monumental clash for a place in Europe against the Druids at the Rock.
The students had endured a tough start to Phase Two, and went eight games without a win. But they did beat Bala Town in a 4-3 thriller at home, as well as drawing 3-3 away at The New Saints to end their campaign.
They took heart from that – and showed their class as they beat Barry Town United in the semi-final to advance to the final.

Dr.Christian Edwards also alluded to why it is pivotal they now build on this form in the final and they could earn a place in the Europa League in the final after what was one of their best performances of the season against the Linnets.
It is important they don’t get carried away, but they’re buoyant. They have been there before, and they are no doubt ready to make history on Sunday lunchtime.
If Adam Roscrow and top-scorer Eliot Evans can combine, then there is no reason why the students can’t defeat the Ancients. Their confidence is flowing and they have reached new heights this season – they were leading the league at one point in Phase One of this season.
But it is important now they learn from last year’s final when they lost to Bangor City and go better. They’re definitely capable of doing that with the current squad they have.
They haven’t done badly for a bunch of students. And if they win on Sunday, then they will go down in the history books. There is absolutely no mistake about that.
