Adran Premier Preview | Cardiff City vs. Cardiff Met
Cardiff City FC Women welcome Cardiff Metropolitan University to Cardiff International Sports Campus on Sunday (13/11), 2pm KO.
Entry for this weekend’s fixture will be free of charge, in a great chance to watch the top-of-the-table clash!
The Bluebirds recorded a 1-1 draw with Pontypridd United last week to continue the unbeaten start to the Adran Premier campaign.
Iain Darbyshire’s side are currently at the summit of the table, with 19 points from the opening seven fixtures.
The Archers are third in the Adran Premier, trailing City by three points, and head into this weekend on the back of a 1-1 draw against Swansea City Ladies.
“We’ve had three really good sessions in training this week,” Iain began. “All the players have been really focused and really excited about playing Cardiff Met this weekend. They know it’s a big opportunity. Training has been great, so it’s all positive going into Sunday.
“We take confidence from the last time we played them in the cup final. We take belief that we can win these big games. Cardiff Met will be a different opposition to what they were then and they’re on a good run of form. We know that if we focus on ourselves and our strengths, we can get a positive result.
“It would be a massive result, but we’re only taking it one game at a time. It would be great for our confidence and our belief and that’s all we’re thinking about. Then, the focus will be on Abergavenny next week.”
Midfielder Seren Watkins, who has played a huge part in the Bluebirds’ great start to the season, added: “The spirits in training this week are getting better since the tough result last Sunday. We know where we need to improve and are looking forward to hopefully putting it into Sunday’s match against Cardiff Met.
“The cup final we won against Met has given us lots of confidence and belief that we can get the three points, but we know Cardiff Met are going to be up for it and can’t underestimate that. It would be great to get all three points against them and would really mark our place in the league, which so far we have done very well.”
