⚽️ MATCH UPDATE - TREFOREST 2 CARDIFF AIRPORT 2 ⚽️
Treforest came away with a point yesterday against Cardiff Airport, but will feel it was a huge missed opportunity to take all 3. A good first half in which they were a constant threat and played some lovely football saw the hosts head into the break 2-0 up.
The first, a great move that saw Jonas burst down the wing and cross for Bunny to calmly a lot home, the second, again, a great cross from the left that was diverted into the back of the net for an own goal. Treforest new that the visitors wouldn’t roll over and came out looking for a third goal that would effectively kill the game, however the game changed in a matter of minutes. Firstly, a deflected shot found its way into the bottom of the goal before Treforest lost Lewis Thomas to a red card in an incident in which both players squared up Lewis was seen as the aggressor by the referee. This gave Airport the spur they needed and threw a lot at Treforest who battled bravely until another deflected shot hit the post and rebounded out to their striker who was a yard out to tuck it into an empty net. This left Treforest with a very nervous 10 minutes, however, to their great credit the visitors didn’t create anymore chances and in fact it was Treforest who could have and should have won it. Firstly a fine point blank save from the keeper denied Bunny before debutant Alex Jacklin had strong penalty claims turned down by the referee. Definitely 3 points missed, but an outstanding effort to take a point in the end with some outstanding commitment. Man of the match for Treforest was Kian Tuchli, who was outstanding in midfield.
