CAERNARFON Town manager Sean Eardley declared his side’s 0-0 draw at Aberystwyth Town “a fair result” as they continued their impressive start to life in the JD Welsh Premier League.

The Canaries battled treacherous conditions to secure a clean sheet on a difficult evening for football, and the newly promoted outfit now sit in seventh spot ahead of their home clash with Newtown on Friday (7.45pm).

Eardley, said: “I thought it was a game of two halves really. We were very good in the first and although we had to battle the elements I thought we defended resolutely and had some opportunities of our own.

“The second half was different, and I felt that with the wind we might take control but credit to Aberystwyth they were very good and asked questions of us, so I think on the balance of things it was probably a fair result.

“During the warm up I didn’t think that the conditions were that bad and my initial concern was for everyone travelling down. You are always going to have conditions like this throughout the season but considering the elements I thought it was a good game of football with a lot of incident.

“It’s not the worst result in the world and on another day we might have had a break to get all three points, but at the same time we need to start being more ruthless and clinical with our chances as we don’t want to be looking back at dropped points where we had chances at the end of the season.”

Jamie Breese and Rio Ahmadi proved the biggest threats for Caernarfon and Aber respectively, as the former brought a number of top saves out of Terry McCormick in the home goal.

Ahmadi’s movement and hold-up play causing the Cofis some issues, but as the game looked like it would spark into life the half time whistle came.

Ashley Ruane and Ryan Edwards had big second half chances for the hosts, and the game’s major incident arrived on 82 minutes when the visitors had a goal disallowed as play was brought back to give recent signing Noah Edwards a red card.
