Match report by Ian Pearce Aberdare   Town   ended   2018   with   another   defeat   and   plunged   them   11   points   from   safety   as   lack   of   available   players   left   them   with   only   boss   Simon   Jones   on   the   bench and it was another heavy loss for the Aberdare faithful to take leaving them with little Christmas cheer on their minds. The   visitors,   who   currently   sit   second   in   the   table   and   in   with   a   chance   of   promotion,   took   control   from   the   opening   whistle   and   it   didn’t   take   long   for   the   deadlock   to   be   broken   as   a deep   cross   from   the   left   to   the   back   post   after   12   minutes   saw   Ross   Davies   try   and   head   the   ball   back   across   goal   but   what   should   have   been   a   simple   catch   for   young   keeper   James Ofomah-Parry saw the ball squirm away from his grasp and trickle into the net under his body. Aberdare   went   on   to   enjoy   a   good   spell   over   the   next   10   minutes   and   played   some   nice   football   and   from   one   of   their   limited   chances   a   superb   cross   from   Daniel   Riddiford   on   the   left     looked like being headed home by debutant striker Adam Jones but the ball ended up floating away from danger. Abegavenny should have doubled their lead after 24 minutes as Curtis Methven completely missed the ball from only 2 yards out following a pull back. On   the   half   hour   the   visitors   did   get   their   second   as   Ofomah-Parry   made   a   spectacular   save   tipping   an   effort   onto   the   bar   from   a   shot   from   the   edge   of   the   area   but   the   loose   ball   was crossed in from the right and Sean Feeley headed home. It   was   actually   a   half   of   few   chances   but   right   on   the   stroke   of   half-time Abergavenny   were   gift   wrapped   their   third   goal   as   another   debutant   Scott   Philpot   was   penalised   for   handball and Feeley buried the spot kick with the last kick of the half. Half Time: Aberdare Town 0-3 Abergavenny Town It   continued   to   be   one   way   traffic   in   the   second   half   as   Ofomah-Parry   again   pulled   off   a   good   save   at   full   stretch   to   deny   Daniel   Hartland   and   Methven’s   luck   was   certainly   out   as   his free kick cannoned off the top of the crossbar. The   fourth   goal   of   the   game   came   after   69   minutes   as   a   ball   across   the   face   of   the   box   rebounded   off   the   young Aberdare   keepers   chest   and   left   Feeley   with   the   simplest   chance   to complete his hat-trick. Methvyn finally put his earlier miss to bed with 73 minutes gone as a simple ball over the top of the tiring Aberdare defence saw him bury the ball into the net. Ofomah-Parry   again   made   a   good   save   low   down   to   deny   Hartland   and   with   5   minutes   left   Will   Duggan   scored   after   being   set   up   by   the   visitors   player   manager   Ben   Bannon   who   had just come off the bench. With   the   Christmas   and   New Year   period   off   now   for Aberdare   it   will   hopefully   give   time   for   the   unavailable   players   to   be   back   in   contention   and   with   13   games   left   in   what   has   been   a bleak   mid-winter   to   date   the   next   game   at   home   to   Garden   Village   on   Friday   4th   January   will   hear   the Aberdare   utlras   in   full   voice   once   again   and   hopefully   it   will   be   far   from   a   silent night. FineClub.co.uk  Man of the Match: Scott Griffiths Team:    James   Ofomah-Parry,   Scott   Griffiths,   Daniel   Riddiford,   Matthew   Owen,   Steve   Lane,   Ryan   Davies   (Simon   Jones),   Scott   Philpot,   Andrew   Price,   Rhys   Thomas,   Adam   Jones, Drew Langdon Sub not used:   n/a Scorers:   n/a
