With the sun shining and spirits within the club on a high, Mark Pike’s men travelled down to Haverfordwest County and came away with a more than credible draw on the road.
The game itself had little action and the goalless result was probably reflective of this. Ricky Watts was the looking the most dangerous for the home side and just went wide of the mark within the first 10 minutes of the game.
Port Talbot Town had the biggest chance of the game which came minutes later. Keane Watts latched on to a ball played over a very high pressing Bluebirds side and found himself with the whole half of the pitch to run at. The linesman had initially flagged which held up play for a second or two before lowering and allowing Watts to continue on a now delayed run. Pushed wider of the goal now, Watts went one on one with Kyle Stuart who did well to prevent Watts’ effort from going in.
Haverfordwest did go close one more time from a corner later on in the half. Ryan Morgan remained on the back post when the ball came in to play and following a headed effort he was able to clear the danger from the PTT goal line.
Blake Morgan was looking for assists at the start of the second half and provided two excellent crosses where the away side looked most dangerous. Morgan Thomas and Keane Watts going close to goal on these occasions.
With minutes to play, a defensive error nearly cost Port Talbot dearly as Sean Pemberton got a chance from close range. Pemberton unable to direct his shot on target in what was the last bit of action down at Meadow View
