Brewerton blow for Bangor double header


Tomos Hughes

BANGOR CITY will look get back to winning ways as they prepare for a double-header against Aberystwyth Town this week.

Nev Powell’s side will be keen to make amends for their 3-2 defeat at Newtown last Saturday, as they face the Black and Greens twice in a space of four days.

The Citizens will be sweating on the fitness skipper Jamie Brewerton, who is a doubt for the weekend’s match, as is full-back Chris Roberts.

Aber manager Tomi Morgan brings his side to the Book People Stadium on the back of an encouraging 1-1 draw against Bala Town, and will be hoping his side can produce and equally stubborn display on Saturday, before the return match the following Tuesday.

City were left shellshocked as two late goals saw them leave Latham Park empty-handed in their first away league match of the campaign.

Bangor began the match in the ascendancy, with midfielders Damien Allen and Craig Garside having the early opportunities.

After sustained pressure, the Citizens took the lead when Chris Simm was put through by Les Davies to score his second league goal in as many games with a well-executed finish.

Three minutes later however, the hosts equalised after Luke Boundford’s shot took a defelction to wrong-foot Lee Idzi.

The second half saw both sides threaten to take the lead, and it was Bangor who struck in the 83rd minute, when Mark Smyth converted Alan Bull’s cross.

The Robins did not give up though, and they drew level again on 86 minutes through Steve Blenkinsop, before completing a remarkable turnaround in the 90th minute courtesy of Boundford’s second.

An injury to captain Jamie Brewerton midway through the second period completed a miserable afternoon for Powell’s men, who will be hoping to recover from this early setback with six points over the coming week.
