Neil SmothersTWO festive fixtures against Aberystwyth Town could define the season for Welsh Premier bottom club Carmarthen Town.
The Old Gold are five points behind their mid-Wales rivals so the visit to Park Avenue on Boxing Day could lengthen the margin between the teams to eight points — a formidable gap considering Neil Smothers's side have scrambled just 10 points from 20 matches.
Town's away record is hardly promising as they have yet to gain a point on the road, but Smothers is upbeat after a spirited 1-0 home loss to The New Saints last Saturday.
"To play so well against a side who have dominated the Welsh Premier for the past six or seven years was a good effort and the lads can take confidence from that," Smothers told the South Wales Evening Post.
"We had a few chances to have gained a point but failed to convert them, but the performance was very encouraging.
"I have been happy with the players' attitude and commitment, but we now need to start getting points on the board."
