Match of the week in the JD Cymru Premier could well be the clash of the bottom two Flint Town United and Cefn Druids as the Essity Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Druids moved off the basement following Saturday’s superb 4-1 win over Haverfordwest, while the Silkmen now prop up the league after their match at Penybont was postponed.

New Flint manager Neil Gibson was due to take change of the team for the first time in Bridgend, but the game was called off for medical reasons following reports of Covid cases within the North Wales club’s camp.

Flint report on their website that Tuesday’s meeting with Druids is set to go ahead.

“We are delighted to confirm that the Covid tests taken for players displaying symptoms over the weekend, have come back negative,” said a Flint Town United statement.

“So tomorrow night’s (Tuesday) game at home to Cefn Druids will take place as scheduled (KO 7-45pm).

“It’s been a worrying few days for the players concerned and their families, and we are relieved that they can now put this behind them and we can all once again concentrate on the football.

“We would also like to express our thanks to the support we have received among the football community since the news first broke, and we extend our best wishes to the two players who did test positive, and hope they enjoy a full and speedy recovery.

“A third player, who was originally thought to have tested positive, was re-tested and has now been confirmed as negative, after the first test was found to be inconclusive.”
