Another   dismal   away   performance   saw Aberdare   fall   to   a   third   successive      defeat   with   five   again   in   the   goals   against   column. That   is fifteen in three away games and over fifty conceded in total this campaign.  The   position   is   now   critical   and   an   ignominious   fall   into   the Alliance   league,   a   definite   possibility.   With   a   series   of   home   games   to   come,   wins   are   an   imperative   but   on the evidence of this performance a great turnaround in effort, commitment and resolve is essential.  Other   than   a   few   you   could   count   on   one   hand,   players   are   not   taking   the   responsibility      in   certain   areas   of   the   pitch      and   yet   again   too   quick   to   switch   off   when things get difficult, a contagion that can quickly spread. Josh   Evans   made   a   couple   of   changes   for   this   match   bringing   in   keeper   Martin   Phillips   for   the   injured   Mike   Thomas   and   Arron   Cafell   and   Dylan   Jones   slotting   into midfield. An omininous sign for which lay ahead was the loss of central defender ,Scott Reynolds, during the warm up being hastily replaced by Callum Tandy. On   a   windswept   afternoon   awaiting   the   arrival   of   Storm   Ciara,   Aberdare   enjoyed   the   first   half   elements   but   were   to   gain   no   advantage   with   only      a   couple   of   clear chances created, both falling to Caffell who was denied by Tredegar keeper Richard Webb. The opener for the Gwent men came in the ninth minute with Danny Hillman setting up Lewis Parfitt. Caffell’s   first   chance   arrived   minutes   later   but   his   shot   was   parried   away   by   Webb   and      with   a   Dylan   Jones   header      veering   wide   from   the   resulting   corner sandwiched between, another one on one with their keeper again saw Cafell denied. Tredegar   were   to   take      full   advantage   of   this   profligacy   with   Liam   McCann   heading   in   unchallenged   from   a   corner. A   two   nil   lead   against   the   elements   must   certainly have   meant   the   hosts   enjoying   their   half   time   cuppa   sweet   even   without   the   sugar,   with   as   likely   a   bitter   refreshment   served   in   the   Aber   dressing   room   producing substitutions with the introduction of Dewi Abbruzzese and Dylan Reid from kick off. With   the   breeze   strengthtening,   these   changes   made   no   discernible   change   to   proceedings   and   the   hosts   were   now   in   the   ascendancy   with   little   or   no   threat   on   their goal and similar to the two previous away fixtures, goals against came in clusters with all three added in a ten minute spell as Aberdare capitulated. Hillman   notched   the   third   with      the   benefit   of   a   deflection   and   as   the   visitors   crumbled   Nathan   Petit   hit   the   fourth   and   Hillman   as   with   the   opener   setting   up   Parfitt,   as Tredegar went nap. Whether   it   was   them   stepping   off   the   gas   or   a   little   more   fight   from   the   visitors   there   was   to   be   no   further   scoring,   with   Aber   down   to   ten   men   for   the   last   fifteen minutes   having   used   all   their   subs,   the   reason   was   that   sadly,   young   Dewi   Abbruzzese   suffered   a   broken   nose,   quite   possibly   from   a   stray   elbow,   and   was   taken immediately to hospital and all at the club wish him a speedy recovery. Craig   Reddy,   again   to   be   awarded   the   Harrent’s   Man   of   the   Match   award,   presently   stands   out   like   a   beacon   in   the   side   and   is   it   much   to   ask   that   his   teammates recognize the level that he sets and step up to the plate. This hopefully begins on Saturday with the visit of West End and nothing other than  a win the objective. Man of the Match:  Craig Reddy TEAM:    Martyn   Phillips,   Aaron   Tyner,   Simon   Morgan,   Callum   Tandy   (John   Harding),   Craig   Reddy,   Gethin   Jones,   Charlie   Sears,   Dylan   Jones   (Dewi   Abbruzzese), Chris Quinlan, Drew Langdon, Aarran Caffell (Dylan Reid) Subs not used: Matthew Glassey
