"Every game is a cup final" says Hughes

Boss prepared for tough test at in form Druids

Every game for every side in the bottom six is a "cup final" according to Robins boss Chris Hughes.

His side have flown out of the traps in phase two, with six points from six but said his players won't be getting complacent.

The Robins head to Cefn Druids tomorrow evening, and Hughes said: "Every game is a six pointer for every team in the bottom six, and it is a cliche but every game is a cup final.

"We have shown character, togetherness and a good mentality to get us these results in recent weeks.

"The lads have had some flack this season and I have, but we've stuck together and in the last five games it has come together.

"They're still eight games left and we must keep the consistency up, we won't be getting complacent because of what has happened earlier in the season.

"We've won two on the spin for the first time this season, and we want to go and make it three." 

 Hughes has sighted his side re-discovering their clinical finishing as one of the reasons the Robins go into tomorrow's game at the Rock as one of the in form sides.

He added: "Results are the main thing now.

"Last week we weren't as good as Llandudno but we dug in and got the win.

"We were more clinical that we were earlier in the season.

"When presented to us, we've taken our chances and we can use that in tomorrow's game and take confidence from it against Druids who are the in form side in the league in the last two months."

The Newtown boss praised the work done by Druids gaffer Huw Griffiths to turn around their fortunes, and added his side must be on it tomorrow to get a result.

"Huw has done really well after promotion, he is experience but we have prepared well, we know how they will play so the lads will be ready.

"They've signed well in the window and are an experience side who can play, they don't get the credit they deserve.

"It will be physical and they are a side who will look at us and think they can take the points, so we have to be on it." 

Dave Jones is still a doubt with a knee problem, and a shoulder injury last week to captain Shane Sutton also means he is a doubt.
