Uphill task ahead for Robins

Created on 21/07/2022 @ 20:44

Newtown face a massive uphill challenge if they are to make further progress in the Europa Conference after crashing 4-1 in Slovakia tonight.

The Robins found the going tough against a very strong FC Spartak Trnava side containing internationals all over the field in the 2nd Qualifying Round.

It all went wrong for the Robins in the first half with Bamidele Yusuf hitting a hat-trick with goals in the 17th, 41st and 44th minutes with Henry Cowans hitting a 32nd minute response.

Things got even worse in the second half when Alex Ivan netted a fourth for Spartak Trnava in the 75th minute to leave Newtown with an almost impossible task at Park Hall, Oswestry next Thursday.
