CAERNARFON Town ended Connah’s Quay Nomads’ unbeaten home start to the season thanks to a sensational 1-0 win on their travels.

The Canaries turned in another resolute display to take three points from the title contenders, and Sean Eardley’s men will look to continue their exceptional start to the JD Welsh Premier League season when they entertain Barry Town United on Saturday (2.30pm).

A tight opening to proceedings brought little in the way of chances, with Michael Parker narrowly missing out on a chance when his initial effort was smothered by Alex Ramsay on four minutes.

Cofis’ striker Jamie Breese latched on to a long ball soon after but was unable to get a shot away after some impressive defending from John Disney, with Sion Bradley finally forcing John Danby into a comfortable save after some neat approach play with 19 gone.

The visitors were coping extremely well of a barrage of long throws from Michael Parker, Ryan Wignall did flick one narrowly wide after 35 minutes following a prolonged spell of pressure.

Gradually the away side began to see more of the ball towards the end of the half, and they were rewarded for their improved play on the stroke of half-time when Breese steered home with a fantastic finish from ten yards out.

After the break saw the Nomads almost get back on level terms when Michael Wilde’s header from a Craig Williams cross was saved by Ramsay, with a quick counter-attack seeing Bradley fire wide at the other end during a frantic start to the second period.

Andy Morrison’s men were enjoying a lot of possession and getting the ball into threatening areas, but they lacked a cutting edge with the final ball and they almost fell further behind when a fine strike from Clive Williams on 54 minutes dropped wide.

A poor touch from Michael Bakare denied Quay another goalscoring chance on 64 minutes after good work from Declan Poole, and Gareth Evans thought he doubled the Cofis’ lead after 77 but his neat chip over Danby was chalked off for offside.

The Town rearguard held firm superbly after being peppered with corners throughout the second half, and the hosts were unable to create a significant chance of note in the closing stages to give Eardley’s men another famous victory.
