CAERNARFON Town manager Sean Eardley said his side “got what they deserved” following their 3-1 loss at Cefn Druids.

The Canaries fall to back-to-back reverses for the first time this season on Friday night at The Rock and have now conceded seven goals in their last two fixtures, leaving them in fifth position in the JD Cymru Premier standings ahead of their home tie against Carmarthen Town on Saturday (2.30pm).

Speaking to the club’s YouTube channel, Eardley said: “It was a disappointing one and we have had words after the game as we weren’t at our best, particularly in the first half.

“The goals we conceded from our point of view were poor and that’s seven in two now after riding on the crest of a wave a bit this season.

“The Manager of the Month curse can hit you but it’s the players that got me in that position. We plan every single week well for each side but we got what we deserved.

“I don’t want to use the 72-hour change over as an excuse as I thought we looked good in the last 20 minutes when we were chasing the game, but unfortunately it ended up being a disappointing night at the office.

“It’s uncharacteristic from our point of view, but we will be working hard in training this week to address things and give it a good go against Carmarthen.”

A frantic start to the contest saw both side miss a wealth of opportunities to break the deadlock, but the Cofis’ managed to take a slender lead into the break when Danny Brookwell released Jamie Breese, and the in-form striker made no mistake with the finish to put the visitors ahead.

After the interval saw the Ancients’ presented with a golden chance to get back on level terms when they were awarded a penalty on 52 minutes, and Alex Midimu duly despatched the spot-kick past Alex Ramsay.

The home side got an instant impact from substitute James Davies on 62 minutes when he put them in front moments after entering the fray, and the same player was on hand to double their cushion when he broke clear and finished well with 70 on the clock.
