TEN-man Caernarfon Town showed their resolve to secure a late 2-2 draw at JD Welsh Premier League rivals Llanelli Town.

The Canaries showed all their fighting qualities to secure a share of the spoils after a frantic second period, and Sean Eardley’s men now turn their attention to JD Welsh Cup action this Friday when they face a tricky looking trip to second tier side Prestatyn Town (7.45pm).

The home side almost opened the scoring early on when a James Loveridge rattled the post after a good spell of possession, with Gareth Edwards unfortunate not to put the Cofis ahead on two occasions in the first half when he found the woodwork with both of his opportunities.

After the break saw things take a sour turn for the visitors as goalkeeper Alex Ramsay was sent off after bringing down Jordan Follows just outside the box after he misjudged the initial long ball, meaning Nic Bould was summoned from the bench to deputise for the talented stopper.

There was further drama on 75 minutes when the away side took an unlikely lead courtesy of skipper Nathan Craig, who unleashed a powerful left-footed free-kick into the top corner to given them a slender advantage.

This was met by a strong response from the hosts, who drew level on 79 minutes when a Kurtis March cross took a he deflection before looping in over Bould, and they went ahead for the first time when Chris Jones converted from the spot with 84 gone.

As has been the case throughout the campaign, the Canaries responded well and their persistence finally paid off two minutes from time when striker Jamie Breese was presented with a chance, and the clinical striker made no mistake with the finish to level matters.

Scott Tancock was sent off for the hosts in the aftermath of the equaliser, but neither side were able to add to the score and had to be content with a point to show for their efforts.
