After   a   pre-season   friendly   6-1   defeat   to   their   visitors,   Aberdare   were   hoping   to   continue   their   recent   good   form having only lost 1 out of their last 6 games. The   defence   was   augmented   by   the   inclusion   of   the   returning   Morgan   Rowling   while   Noah   Searl   started   in   place   of   the unavailable Dan Cushion. Baglan,   who   were   undefeated   in   their   league   fixtures,   were   prominent   in   their   attacks   which   were   well   intercepted   by   Harrant Properties Player of the Match Rhys Thomas and little threat came to the Aberdare goal. After   not   unduly   troubling   the   visitors   back   line, Aberdare   took   a   36th   minute   lead   when   a   searching   cross   from   Searl   was   met by the onrushing Ryan Boulton to strike the opening goal. After   Simon   Grmay   had   covered   well   to   head   back   to   'keeper   Ioan   Protheroe,   Baglan   thought   they   had   equalized   via   a header   from   a   free-kick   but   it   was   offside.   However,   right   on   Half-time,   a   melee   in   the   home   6   yard   box   was   adjudged   to include a trip on a Baglan player and Jordan Evans netted the equalizer from the spot. A real blow to the home side who had competed well against their more experienced opponents. After   a   50th   minute   diving   header   was   wide   from   Baglan,   three   minutes   later   saw   Jordan   Evans   hold   off   challenges   to   shoot into the far corner for a 2-1 lead for Baglan.

On the hour Aber's defence was again breached as Josh Evans broke through to easily score. As   always   the   hosts   took   the   game   to   their   visitors   and   a   fine   run   by   Yussuf   Ali,   collecting   a   through   ball   from   Aaron   Rees, down   the   left   saw   his   attempt   beat   the   'keeper,   only   to   hit   the   inside   of   the   post   and   end   up   back   with   the   eccentric   Matthew Stanton who enjoyed winding the crowd up. It   seemed   that   the   game   would   drift   to   an   end   as   Baglan   knew   how   to   kill   off   the   remaining   time   with   decisions   seemingly   all going   against   the   hosts   which   led   to   disagreement   from   the Aberdare   bench   and   the   unfortunate   dismissal   of   manager   Terry Fitzpatrick by the official. There was still time for Baglan to lose one of their men to a red card but the final whistle soon followed. Hopefully, Aberdare   will   again   have   learnt   a   harsh   lesson   in   seeing   out   another   game   in   which   they   took   the   lead.   The   next two visits to Garw   and Blaenrhondda will define how Aberdare's season may turn out.
