Druids show lack of ambition

NEWI Cefn Druids had conceded 10 goals in their previous two league games and clearly arrived at Park Hall on a damage limitation exercise.
But an 18th-minute goal from Barry Hogan ensured they returned home empty-handed and propelled The New Saints to the top of their group in the Loosemores League Cup.
The visitors almost took an early lead when a Darren Williams shot fizzed over Gerard Doherty's bar, but Hogan soon responded with a shot wide of the target from a Tommy Holmes run and pass, and Jamie Wood went even closer following his solo run.
It was Hogan who found the key to unlock the Ancients' defence, initiating the move that saw Carl Lamb mis-kick and Hogan fired past keeper Carl Edwards from 12 yards.
Andrew Edgar found Kevin Holsgrove wide on the left and shot wide in the Druids' only hint of ambition in the first-half, but TNS struggled to find a way through in an uninspiring game of cat and mouse.
Lamb hit the post after the break from Martyn Naylor's right wing free-kick and Steven Beck could have done better when failing to control a sublime through ball from Holmes.
Naylor also hit the side netting when a cut back pass to Lamb looked the better option, but the second goal failed to arrive, while the defence was rarely troubled by a Druids' side who appeared content to escape with a one-goal defeat.
