Port Talbot Town manager Scott Young has praised his side’s work-rate in the run up to Saturday’s Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League play-off final (3pm).
Young has seen his side record three successive clean-sheets on route to the weekend’s Euro play-off at the Gen-Quip stadium and believes his own footballing upbringing was evident as his Port Talbot side ground out a disciplined 1-0 victory in last weekend’s semi-final against Carmarthen Town.
"That was how I was brought up and it was my game - work hard every week, show lots of desire and then I believe the quality comes out on to. I see work-rate as a skill and the lads worked their socks off and they were different class,” said Young following Saturday’s win.
"Being hard to beat and keeping clean-sheets is how I was brought up."

"I’ve said to the lads that the first stage was to get into the top-six, the second stage was to go into the play-offs, the third one was to win the semi-final and now we’ve now got one more to go.
"There are two teams left looking to achieve the same thing so we’ve got a fifty-fifty chance and I’m sure it’s going to be a great game next week.
"Bala are a good team, they’ve won twelve on the bounce now and their going to come here full of confidence and maybe as slight favourites.”
