Cardiff Metropolitan midfielder Evans calls for Archers to stick together
Midfielder Will Evans has called for Cardiff Met to “stick together” after losing to Aberystwyth Town at the Cyncoed Campus on Sunday.
Cardiff Metropolitan are now without a league win since the 30th September, when they beat Welsh Premier League champions The New Saints.
Second half goals from Aberystwyth’s Declan Walker, Ryan Wollacott and Ashley Ruane helped to turn the game around.
The Archers raced into a 2-0 lead inside the first forty-five minutes, before being pegged back by the Seasiders leaving the Met six points adrift of the top six in the eighth position.
Evans stressed the importance of showing bouncebackability this coming Saturday against Caernarfon Town.
“We knew this Sunday was a six-pointer and it makes next week an even bigger game.” “
We got to lick our wounds now, we got to stick together, we’ve come this far as a squad, we have to continue as a squad like this.”
Having not scored since Met’s 4-1 win over Barry Town in May. Evans opened the scoring for the home team in the sixth minute.
The midfielder said: “It’s nice to get off the mark, It’s my first goal this season.”
“Overall I thought we were in complete control in the first half, I thought me and Sam (Snaith) linked up quite well with Ells (Evans) rolling in.”
“I thought we looked really good, gave them a lot of trouble, maybe should have killed the game before halftime.”
Sam Snaith added a second ten minutes before halftime scoring his fifth goal of the season and Cardiff Met’s number 11 was keen to praise his teammate.
“Sam is flying, obviously he is still only 18, which is absolutely unbelievable but he’s getting his goals.
He knows himself that he has to get his head down, maybe that maturity, hopefully, comes through and then parts of his game will come and I think he’s got a really bright future.”
Cardiff Metropolitan travel to The Oval this Saturday to face Caernarfon Town in the late televised fixture.
