Match Report - 10 Oct 2008, Ammanford AFC Firsts drew with Pontypridd Town


Ammanford 's performance was impressive enough on Friday night at Ynysygharad Park, but they failed to bag a maximum return.

Frustrated coach Phil Fisher was left wishing he had been on the pitch to tap in the winner.

"We missed so many scoring opportunities, including three really clear-cut chances in the second half. I could have run on and tapped them in myself," Fisher quipped.

"When you miss chances like that they usually come back to bite you, which they certainly did.

"It was definitely two points lost and a very disappointing result for us against what was probably the worst side we've played against all season.

"Pontypridd only made two meaningful attacks and they scored from both.

"Our keeper Richard Walton didn't turn up. Gruff Harrison filled in at the last minute and did okay to be fair,'' added Fisher.

The first half ended 0-0.

During the interval Phil Fisher brought on son Matthew, whose dazzling run in the 50th minute set up the first goal.

Fisher beat three defenders before whipping the ball into defender Cerith Williams, who finished in style.

However, this narrow lead was short-lived with Ponty making the most of an individual defensive error to level the scores 10 minutes later.

With 15 minutes left, Ammanford were awarded a penalty, which Richard Lewis netted.

The away win looked likely for the visitors way but, during a late Ponty attack - only their second goal threat of the night - they equalised.
