Haverfordwest County manager Wayne Jones has put praise on to opposition manager Rhys Griffiths, ahead of their game this weekend.

Jones will come up against Griffiths this weekend when league leaders Penybont welcome second-placed Haverfordwest County to the KYMCO Stadium, in an early top of the table clash.

Griffiths is a former Haverfordwest striker, having spent two years at the Bridge Meadow Stadium, scoring 19 goals in 57 appearances.

The Haverfordwest County boss said: “Rhys is a very professional man and his attention to detail has always been at the top, this leads to me believe this will be a very very tough game.

With it being the international break, former Football League striker Lee Trundle will be available for selection this weekend.

This season, the 41-year-old has scored seven goals in five appearances, with the Bluebirds currently the top goal scorers of the division.

Trundle’s last visit to Penybont saw him get on the scoresheet, as well as setting up James Loveridge for a hat-trick, as he helped Llanelli Town to a convincing victory over Penybont in September of last year.

Wayne Jones added: “He’ll bring experience and a major threat to Penybont like any opposition we face, he’s a million pound player who has been a great asset to our club on and off the pitch.

The goal ratio and creativity have been outstanding.”

Likely to play alongside Trundle is 18-year-old forward Danny Williams, who is currently the top goal scorer of Division One.

Williams has captained the Welsh School’s side and already has Welsh League experience with Goytre United and Pontardawe Town.

He has earnt praise from his club manager, who feels he is showing his true potential.

“Danny is showing his true potential and is developing fast.

His creativity and pace are causing opposition havoc but also he’s gaining good knowing where to be a threat and he’s lucky to have service and opportunity from his teammates.

Something we as a group are working hard on. His end product is clinical at present.”
