CAERNARFON Town manager Sean Eardley praised his side’s work ethic as they secured a 2-0 home win over Cardiff Met.

The Canaries put in a resolute display with plenty of quality in front of the S4C Sgorio cameras for their second victory in succession, and they sit in seventh spot in the JD Welsh Premier League standings ahead of their next outing at Llanelli Town on December 1 (2.30pm).

Eardley, said: “It was a massive shift by everyone and a clean sheet against Cardiff Met is an accomplishment in itself as they have very good attacking players, but I thought our back five dealt with it tremendously.

“It was a good win and a crucial one in the grand scheme of things as we needed to keep on Aberystwyth’s tails and we managed to do that against a very good side.

“We were very disciplined, and you could see the elation from the boys just what it meant and I thought they were magnificent from minute one.

“We were under a pretty heavy storm at the start of the second half but we weathered it and credit to them all for sticking together during a sticky period, which we have managed to come through.

“I’ve got lads coming back from injury and we are looking to go down to Llanelli with a full-strength squad providing all of them react well to their fitness and rehabilitation programmes, and we will probably get together once this week to keep us ticking over and then it’s full steam ahead.”

The home side got off to a hugely impressive start and went ahead on 19 minutes when a slick passing move presented a chance to Noah Edwards, and the talented midfielder demonstrated tremendous composure to slot into the net and give the Cofis an early advantage.

Things got even better for the hosts just before the break when defender Gareth Edwards finished from close range a minute before the interval, and despite coming under heavy pressure after the break, the Town rearguard held firm to record their sixth win in 15 top flight contests since their promotion.
