Danger Man

Eliot Evans - The ever present Eliot Evans has been the main source of goals for the Met this season, leading the way with nine league goals to his name having now matched his league tally for last season with five games to go. The Met will look to Evans today, in hope they can find their first three points of Phase Two, having only picked up two points thus far. The 32 year old already has a goal against the Lakesiders this season; scoring the only goal of the game at Maes Tegid in mid-December.

Previous Meetings  

In the last five meetings between the two sides, the Met come out on top with two victories to their name, with the other three meetings ending with a share of the points. The last meeting was a 1-1 draw at Maes Tegid as George Newell slotted the ball home from his saved penalty in the 80th minute; cancelling out Finn Skiverton's first half goal. Our last trip to Cyncoed was in August last year and would also end in a draw, with neither side finding the net in our first away trip of the season.
