Ebbw travel to the Talbot Athletic Ground this week, where they’ll face cup finalists Aberavon. Aberavon have been taken on once already this season, way back in the pre-season preparations, Ebbw nicking a 29-26 victory on the south coast.
The Wizards have proven tough opposition for everyone this season, winning 12 of their 14 games across both competitions. Avon are unbeaten in their previous three games, having rounded off wins against Carmarthen and Llanelli with a one-point victory in the cup against Llandovery.
Ebbw also enter on fairly good form having beaten both Swansea and Llandovery in recent weeks, with last weekend’s action against Bridgend called off due to a front row player shortage – the right call given we all want to see games played with no relegation this season.
The Steelmen will be refreshed having had a couple of weeks off heading into the final month of the season and Jason and the boys are hoping for a good turnout to support the lads, “Whenever you’ve got good support, the main part of that is the team needs to do that on the pitch. Ebbw Vale will always get good crowds, but that’s up to us to get the crowd back here and supporting, not up to them.”
You can still book a space on the supporters bus by giving Angharad a call 07815163355 and let’s make the Wizards #FEELTHESTEEL!!!
