CAERNARFON Town were unable to extend their good run of form following a 4-2 reverse at Connah’s Quay Nomads.

The Canaries were unable to claim anything from another largely positive display against the Europa League heroes, with the game decided in a short space of time in the second period that proved to make the difference overall.

There is little time for Sean Eardley’s side to reflect on the defeat, with the Cofis’ set to visit Cefn Druids on Friday night (7.45pm).

A strong start from the home side saw them go ahead on seven minutes when Jamie Insall found Michael Wilde, who was presented with a simple task of finishing from close range to break the deadlock.

This was met by an instant response from the visitors, who levelled proceedings a minute after the restart when livewire forward Danny Brookwell was sent through and steered an opportunity into the net.

After the break saw the Nomads’ restore their slender advantage on 51 minutes when a neat passage of play in the final third resulted in Declan Poole hitting the target, and things went from bad to worse for the Cofis’ soon after when Insall doubled the home side’s advantage with 53 on the clock.

Credit to Eardley’s side, they kept their composure and hit back almost instantly when talented playmaker Sion Bradley’s powerful effort nestled in the corner on 57 minutes during a frantic spell of play at both ends of the field.

Town worked incredibly hard in pursuit of a leveller but failed to make the most of the chances that came their way, and they were undone again on 66 minutes when Insall made the most of the space afforded to him for his brace to complete the scoring and condemn the visitors to defeat.
