Gaffer warns of tough Met test

Robins have never beaten the students in the WPL

Chris Hughes is warning his side of a stern Cardiff Met test as the Robins look to return to winning ways in the league.

The Robins suffer defeat twice in the capital this year, and have never beaten the Students, who are riding high in the table this season.

Hughes was encouraged by his sides response in the JD Welsh Cup last week, and has called for more of the same.

He said: "It is a tough one for us, they're all tough, I say the same things every week, because it is a tough league with improving standards.

"We will need to perform to our maximum to get a result, but we're really looking forward to it.

"After Aber the lads bounced back last week and we want them to do that again this week.

"Met are always tough, we've never beaten them since they got promoted, they're organised, full time and a good bunch of young lads."

The Robins have got a tough Christmas period coming up, with games against Llandudno, Connah's Quay, and a double header with TNS.

Hughes knows how important it is to get points on the board ahead of the festive period, and wants to start against Met.

He said: "Apart from Aber, our performances have been good and we have picked up some wins.

"We know we have it in our locker to beat Met, and we want to get some points on the board now before Christmas.

"They will be organised, but we know how they will play, we will be set up right and be ready to go come Saturday."

Ryan Kershaw is still out for the Robins with a broken hand, and a late fitness check will be taken on Tom Goodwin.

Hughes admitted Jamie Price, who faced an injury lay-off, will be in contention for a re-call, as will Jay Denny who was unavailable for last week's game against Guilsfield.
