4 vs 0
The Cavs progressed into the next round of the Bernard Martin Cup with a good performance and comfortable victory over Treforest at the Wern Park.
The opening 10 minutes were equal, the visitors looking to utilise their tricky and skilful winger and Nelson looking to get the ball forward quickly. As the Cavs settled into the game they began to dominate, James Radusin, Dan Falconer and Ceri Clingo we’re dominating the midfield and dictating the play.
This lead to a few half chances and corners but nothing really clear cut until after some nice build up play Corey Haines fired home to give Nelson the lead.
Joey Brain, Chris Edwards and Cameron Szpadt were keeping the ball well at the back and waiting for gaps appear, this got Lewis Lawford and Dan Lewis more into the game as they started to cause problems down the flanks.
The lead was soon doubled, Szpadt and Lewis combined well to find Clingo who’s inch perfect cross was well met by Hari Davies who extended the Cavs lead. Any Treforest possession was quickly cut out before any threat as Nelson were solid off the ball. More half chances came for the Cavs with Haines and Davies both going close, along with Lawford before Haines fired home a loose ball to make it 3-0. Just before the half Treforest went close after a good break their striker fired just side from the edge of the box.
The half-time message was clear and a target of a clean sheet and more goals was set. Credit to Treforest who changed their shape and looked stronger throughout the 2nd half, and enjoyed more than an equal share of possession. They forced some corners but failed to trouble Matthew Farr in the Nelson goal who dealt with any crosses and through balls well.
The Cavs still looked the more threatening of the two teams Brain missing two good chances from corners, the new front two of Ryan Donovan and Liam Dellana were looking sharp and both had some good opportunities to score.
A combination of poor finishing and some good saves kept the score down before Dellana latched onto a defence splitting pass and rounded the keeper to get a deserved goal for both him and the team.
A good performance especially after a few weeks with no game, man of the match goes to Corey Haines who got two good goals and caused problems for the visiting team throughout the game.
