Druids left disappointed in 2-1 loss to Barry

After last weeks emphatic victory over Carmarthen town, Druids were on the road again - This time to Jenner Park to take on Barry Town. Barry have been making their mark on the league this season and a win over Druids would take them to second in the table, they would surely prove a tough test for Huw Griffiths' men. A dream start to the fixture when a cross by Jordan Evans was picked up by Arek Piskorski and put Druids 10 up after 20 seconds (Surely one of the fastest goals in the leagues history!) The match then opened up with Barry sharing possession- Jon Hood went close to levelling, before Dean Rittenberg hit the post for the Ancients. Piskorski then should have doubled the lead when through one on one with Lewis, but he fired wide. Druids could have put the game to bed by HT but returned to the dressing room with a slim 1-0 lead with all still to play for. A key incident early in the second half changed things, as Ryan Kershaw was shown a straight red for a foul on Chris Hugh. Down to 10 men, Druids attacking style first half quickly switched into defensive mode, an impressive display denied Barry the equaliser for 20 minutes despite hammering on the door. A superb strike by Jordan Cotterill brought things level, Barry smelling blood continued to pepper the Druids goal with shots - Michael Jones made some outstanding saves to keep things level with the whistle in sight. 4 Minutes of added time, Momodou Touray breaks through on '90+2 to score what appeared to be an off-side goal and Druids suffered yet another defeat in added time. The Druids team put on a good defensive display second half and deserved something from the game.
