Cefn Druid boss John Keegan knows his side will need to cut out errors as they chase much-needed points in Saturday’s trip to Newtown.
A 1-0 loss to Bala Town saw the Ancients slip to third-bottom in the Welsh Premier Division table, with just four points gained from their five games played in the new season so far.
Keegan was happy with the performance, but he was concerned by the slack marking that led to Lakesider’s headed goal by Mark Connolly.
“It was a tight game, but I felt we were the better side over the 90 minutes, so it was disappointing that one defensive lapse cost us,” said Keegan.
“These things have been happening too much, most of the goals we’ve conceded so far have been down to us, and we’re learning the hard way at the moment.”
“It’s still early days, but it’s important we cut out these silly goals if we’re going to get ourselves up the table.”
“We’re third from bottom, but when you look at the league table, if one or two things had gone for us, then we could have been in the top four, the table’s that close.”
The Druids will travel to Newtown with a near full-strength squad after forward Karl Moon came back from injury, as he missed the defeat against Bala.
“It’s 50-50, neither side have set the world alight, but on their day both can put in a performance,” added Keegan.
