Neath Head Coach Patrick Horgan, said: "After nine consecutive wins, it was disappointing to lose 12-19 at Llanelli on Monday, all the more so because the winning score came with the last play of the game when we were still attempting to win the game and our move broke down.
"But that's the nature of rugby and the real measure of a side is how it responds to setbacks. Naturally we are looking to bounce back straightaway but we fully realise that Llandovery will be all out to stop us.
"Our supporters always enjoy seeing Llandovery at The Gnoll as they play good rugby with Neath 'old boys' Howard Thomas, Cerith Rees and Gareth James in their ranks. They impressed us in the game up there and we were not altogether surprised that they won at Newport recently - they are a real threat to any side that doesn't play the right game."
