Preview : Bala Town v Flint, Welsh Cup Rd 3, 12/11/22

By Nigel Sheen
On Saturday we travel to Bala for a 3rd round Welsh Cup tie (2pm kick off). Our Supporters Bus will departing the FTUFC Social Club at 10-30am and picking up opposite the Mill Tavern. Some of the team shall also be travelling aboard.
There are just a handful of seats remaining, so anyone who wishes to join the bus is urged to use the contact form on the website ASAP.
Manager Lee Fowler gave us his thoughts on this weekend’s game and on how his team is performing in general :
“Saturday’s Welsh Cup game gives us a break away from the league format, and we will be getting on the bus with the fans to keep that bond between the team and fans. Win or lose they can share a beer, and a song as we all know what we are up against this season.
We are hoping for big Brandon to be back this weekend, his physical presence has been missed, and Jean will have another week’s training behind him after also being out for 3 weeks. He looked off the pace last week, which is natural.
We have had a training ground injury to Dawid, who looks like he dislocated his shoulder in a Goalkeeping drill, so we wish him well on his recovery.
Bala will be a tough game away at their pitch. They’re going well in the league, and like every game this season we will all have to be at our maximum, we can’t carry anyone.
We have drawn at home already in the league with a late equaliser and we pushed each other all the way.
This season has seen us not putting our chances away as defensively we look very solid.
In the last 3 games we have had 6 shots on our goal, let in 3 goals.
But we have only scored 2 goals and yet had 18 shots on target.
We need to understand where we are as club, nothing has changed from the day I took over. From the good form and early wins and sitting on 15 points, we are now missing out on fine margins and the difficult task we had and have remains. My first target has been achieved, that is not to be like Druids last season, get a points haul and avoid heavy score lines. We have lost games by 1 goal not 5 or 6, bar at TNS. We, like many teams around us such as Aber, Cardiff Met, Caernarfon, Haverfordwest, Newtown, have ambitions of Top 6 but equally will be looking over the shoulder at the bottom 6.
Although we have a bottom 6 budget, we have a top 6 mindset, I can assure you of that.
We are all in this together from top to bottom, to the fans and volunteers, we all row in the same boat.

Enjoy the game
