Aberdare   Town   continue   to   search   for   their   first   points   of   the   season   as   they   suffered   a   defeat   on   the   road   against Cefn Cribwr. With   the   departure   of   goalkeeper   Joe   Regan,   Liam   Pryor   took   his   place   between   the   posts   having   filled   in   the   opening   games as centre half while there was also a return of defender Arran Finlayson. On the bench was returning striker Adam Jones having completed his transfer from Caldicot Town in midweek. The   opening   exchanges   were   a   tame   affair   with   neither   side   creating   much   in   the   way   of   clear   cut   chances,   although   there were a couple of difficult moments for the Aberdare defence who were caught out with some poor choices. However,   after   10   minutes   the   hosts   started   to   turn   the   screw   as   Tom   Harris   fired   over   from   the   edge   of   the   area   and   then from a Matthew Symons freekick Ross Hooper headed over. Harris   again   shot   over   the   bar   from   a   volley   from   just   outside   the   box   before   Aberdare   started   to   try   and   get   more   into   the game. On   19   minutes   Will   Eastwood   was   given   the   chance   with   a   25   yard   freekick   but   his   effort   was   blocked   by   the   wall   and   the loose ball fell to Ellis Whitcombe who shot goalwards but his low shot went narrowly wide of the post. A patient build-up saw Noah Searl with a chance but his curling effort from 20 yards just crept past the far post and bar.

Right   on   the   stroke   of   half-time Aber   almost   took   the   lead   as   a   long   clearance   from   Pryor   reached   Ibby   Djilla   who   controlled and   played   it   to   Sanna   Jawo   -   his   perfect   through   ball   reached   Eastwood   whose   stunning   strike   was   tipped   over   by   Aaron Jones with a flying save. Going   in   level   at   the   break   the   travelling   fans   were   hoping   that   the   second   half   could   see   them   sneak   a   winner   but   sadly   it was costly mistakes that once again undid the hard work. It   only   took   3   minutes   of   the   second   period   for   the   hosts   to   get   ahead   as   the Aber   midfield   gave   the   ball   away   too   easily   and after Pryor blocked well with a reaction save and Tom Davies fired home from close range. Aberdare looked to change something and on came Yusuf Ali to replace Abs Camara On   60   minutes   a   Searl   corner   caused   panic   in   the   home   defence   who   just   managed   to   scramble   it   clear   and   Simon   Grmay from the next attack fired a shot wide back across goal. It   was   a   simple   second   goal   for   Cefn   as   a   left   wing   corner   was   headed   home   at   the   far   post   with   a   good   header   from   Ross Hooper. In   a   last   throw   of   the   dice Aber   made   a   triple   change   bringing   on   Jones,   Ryan   Boulton   and Aaron   Rees   in   place   of   Eastwood, Jawo and Dan Cushion. Rees   wasn’t   long   into   the   action   before   he   tried   his   luck   from   distance   which   crept   wide   and   then   he   played   an   excellent   ball into the box only for Scott Reader to find the side netting at the far post. With   time   almost   up   the   hosts   rubbed   salt   into   the   wounds   as   Toby   Galliers   netted   the   third   to   compound   a   miserable afternon on their travels for the Aber faithful. Next   up   is   a   local   derby   against   Merthyr   Saints   on   Wednesday   evening   where   the   performance   level   will   need   to   be   upped from the opening two games of the season.
