Met regain seventh with win over Druids

Three second half goals settle scrappy game

Cardiff Met 3-0 Cefn Druids

Three second half goals settled a scrappy game at Cyncoed Campus this afternoon as Cardiff Met moved back into seventh with a win over Cefn Druids.

A goalless first half saw both sides cancelling the other out, with neither threatening the opposing goal much.

The home side created the best two chances of the half. Emlyn Lewis found space in the box early on to meet a cross, but the centre-back headed wide.

Eliot Evans then used a bit of creativity to cut past two Druids defenders, before firing straight at Michael Jones in the visiting goal.

Druids had started the game in a lively manner, forcing a number of corners early on, but they were unable to turn this pressure into anything.

Met went in front nine minutes into the second half, when a corner from the right wasn't dealt with, and the ball eventually fell to in form Adam Roscrow to prod home from four yards out.

Roscrow was heavily involved again three minutes later when the Archers doubled the lead. The forward sprang the offside trap to go through one on one with Jones: the keeper saved his effort, but the rebound fell to Harry Owen cutting in from the left to tap in.

The game's real moment of quality led to the third goal on 71'. Good interplay down the right between Dylan Rees and sub Liam Warman freed up the latter to get to the bye line to cross, and Warman picked out Evans who slotted home.

The win was Met's third successive 3-0 home win, and puts them back in command of the race for seventh place.
