⚽️ MATCH REPORT ⚽️
Treforest found a way to win ugly against an organised Ton & Gelli at Ynys Park.
After the recent weather the pitch was understandably bobbly and Treforest looked rusty having not played for a number of weeks.
The game started slowly and Tref struggled to get hold of the ball in midfield, whilst Ton tried to utilise the flanks and get balls in the box. A number of half chances came and went for both teams, firstly Ellis Meecham hitting the cross bar from 25 yards and Ton flashing a couple of headers over the bar and looking threatening from the long throw, neither team could find the back of the net and the teams went in 0-0 half time.
The second period started in perfect fashion for Tref a free kick on the edge of the box was planted into the back of the net by Ellis to give the visitors the lead. Tref dug in and defended brilliantly trying to hit their hosts on the break, which nearly led to a second - a brilliant double save from Ton’s keeper maintaining the 1-0 score line. While at the other end the hosts threw everything at Tref, but found a defence and goalkeeper that were determined to keep a clean sheet.
Not a pretty win by any stretch, but a vital 3 points none the less.
