PRESTATYN Sports remain bottom of the early Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One standings after they fell to a 3-1 reverse at Bodedern Athletic.

Individual mistakes overshadowed another encouraging display from Sion Williams and John Hargreaves’ side, who are still looking for their first point of the campaign and will look to achieve this during their home clash with St Asaph City on Wednesday night.

Williams, said: “It is always a tough away day at Bodedern every time we go there and this was no different.

“Take out our defensive mistakes and we deserved a draw out of that game, but it's a tough league and it's the difference right now, we have to cut out the individual errors.

“Playing all these away games in a row hasn't been easy and we didn't get much on our travels last season either so there is no panic.

“We have a big local derby at home on Wednesday so we're expecting a big response from the lads.”

A bright start from the visitors was quashed on 19 minutes when prolific striker Dean Redmond, a summer signing from Gwynedd League champions Menai Bridge Tigers, capitalised on some hesitant defending to turn in the opener.

The same player was on hand to double their tally after the break, with Redmond unleashing a stunning striker that gave the visiting keeper no chance with 64 on the clock.

Credit to the away side, they remained resolute and got their reward on 76 minutes when Dean Hyland extended his good form in front of goal with a close-range finish after superb work from Ryan Fortune in the build-up.

Sports threw everything at their opponents in the closing stages in pursuit of a leveller, but they were undone in stoppage time as a quick counter-attack presented a chance to Callum Thomas, who made no mistake to seal their success.

Following their midweek clash, Sports face a tricky looking trip to title contenders Llandudno Albion on Saturday.
