JD Cymru Premier League


Cardiff Met University 0 - Haverfordwest County 2

Haverfordwest County stretched their unbeaten run to five games following an impressive victory against Cardiff Met University at the Cyncoed Campus.

Goals in the second half by Ben Fawcett and Kieran Lewis sealed an excellent three points in the capital as
Bluebirds’ manager Wayne Jones kept the same starting line-up, with the only change being Alaric Jones returning from injury to the bench.

The Bluebirds were desperately unlucky not to open the scoring earl as Alhagi Touray Sisay teed-up Fawcett inside the box, but the striker’s first-time effort struck the post.

A minute later saw Touray Sisay break clear,but  the tall striker’s shot was well saved by Archers’ goalkeeper Adam Lang before it was cleared to safety.

The Bluebirds’ rock-solid defence, consisting of skipper Dylan Rees, Jazz Richards, Kyle Patten, and Ricky Watts, did a splendid job all afternoon as they kept the Archers’ strike force at bay.

Matthew Chubb tried a shot from distance which flew well clear of Wojciech Gajda’s crossbar.

At the other end, Danny Williams struck a firm shot straight to keeper Lang, as the score line remained goalless at half time.

Bluebirds looked dangerous

Shortly after the interval the visitors continued to look dangerous on the break as Fawcett flashed a shot wide. Touray Sisay had a great chance to break the deadlock, but once again the Spaniard was denied by Lang.

The Archers also went close to opening the scoring when substitute Liam Warman struck a low drilled effort agonisingly wide.

The visitors finally broke the deadlock in the 71st minute as Touray Sisay’s won a header which broke kindly to Fawcett, the latter finishing superbly with a right-footed strike from outside the box which comfortably beat the outstretched Lang.

This was just the breakthrough that the visitors deserved and five minutes from full time they put the game to bed by scoring their second goal.

Lewis grabs vital second

Touray Sisay played in midfielder Kieran Lewis who clinically finished to secure the victory for the delighted Bluebirds.
Wayne Jones: “The win was no more than we deserved. We created chances and kept a clean sheet. Ben (Fawcett) took his goal well and Kieran (Lewis) sealed the win with a goal five minutes from full time.

“There are no easy games in this division and things can quickly change, so we have to remain focused, I know it’s a cliché but we take one game at a time.”
