Port v Dinbych / Denbigh - 14/03/01

Welcome once again to Y Traeth for this evening's League match against Denbigh Town. We visited Denbigh on the opening day of the season and ran out 4-1 winners, but we can expect a tough battle again this evening as our visitors go in search of much needed points.

As we all know last Saturday's match was surrounded with controversy. Efforts were made to postpone the match as local farmers expressed their concern. The foot and mouth crisis has hit farming communities hard and we at Porthmadog Football Club have sympathy with the plight of farmers. Football for players, officials and supporters is a pas-time and a pleasure but farmers are worried, understandably, about loosing their livelihood and no wonder they are concerned. It is vital that football is seen to be doing all it can to support the farmers and that our actions in no way worsens the situation. Clubs like Porthmadog are part of the community in which they operate and must do all we can to help in difficult situations like this. I am sure that we all hope that this virus is defeated very soon and that things can back to normal as soon as possible.

As far as Saturday's performance was concerned it was pleasing to keep a clean sheet, our fifth in a row. Our defence has been outstanding in recent games, not just the players on duty on Saturday but Mike and Warren who were out injured have been a big part of our recent success. One player in particular has in my view had a purple patch of late and that is club captain Campbell Harrison, despite still not being 100% with the after effects of his virus problem he has been consistently putting in first class performances. I felt we could easily have emerged victors on Saturday, I think we had the better chances especially in the second half.

Of the injured and walking wounded news is mixed. Mike Foster looks as if he will be out for another 7 days with his back injury, while both Warren and Carl will be hoping to be back tonight after tonsillitis and flu respectively. Kenny Dixon is unlikely to start tonight, as his shoulder is still painful, Merfyn Williams is likely to deputise if required. Danny Hughes is also not fully fit after a knee injury against Holyhead but still managed to put in an excellent performance on Saturday so he is likely to start as long as he does not have any ill effects after Saturday.
