HAVERFORDWEST County and Cardiff Met earned their first points of the season on Friday (Aug 20) as they played out a 0-0 draw at the Ogi Bridge Meadow.

The Bluebirds played the entire 2020/21 season behind closed doors as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and Friday’s game was the first Cymru Premier fixture where fans were allowed to come and watch.

As a thank you to the fans for their patience the Bluebirds gave free entry for all spectators.

It resulted in a bumper attendance of 895 at the Bridge Meadow, the highest of the weekend.

The Met made a bright start to the game as Emlyn Lewis headed over from a Kyle McCarthy corner before Adam Roscrow and Elliot Evans also came close.

With fifteen minutes gone, Ben Fawcett forced Alex Lang into a point blank save and Kyle Patten was also denied.

Kieran Lewis saw a shot deflect wide on the half hour mark as the Bluebirds began to dominate the game.

Just a minute later though the visitors almost took the lead as the ball fell kindly for Evans and he tried to chip Lee Idzi but it went just the other side of the post.

Henry Jones then sent a free kick into the box but it evaded everyone and it remained 0-0 when the half time whistle went.

Evans and Roscrow both saw shots go wide early on in the second half as the Met started brightly again.

Twenty minutes in, Jones sent a free kick into the box but Fawcett headed wide.

Evans saw a free kick blocked by Dylan Rees as they continued to look for the opening goal.

With thirteen minutes to go, Mason Jones-Thomas picked the ball up and ran towards goal but he sliced a shot just past the post.

With three minutes to go Liam Warman sent a snap-shot towards goal but Lee Idzi made an excellent save to deny him and keep the scores level.

That was the last of the action as both sides settled for a point.
