LLANDUDNO Albion got their Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One title challenge back on track with a 5-2 win at Llandyrnog United.

The promotion candidates are now just two points behind Denbigh Town with a game in hand, moving two clear of Holyhead Hotspur having played a pair of games more than the Holy Islanders.

A sensational start at Cae Nant saw the visitors go ahead on four minutes when Joe Morgan found the net, and the versatile veteran was on hand to double Albion’s tally soon after with another impressive attempt with 11 on the clock.

Jimmy McInally’s side managed to ick themselves up following the early setbacks and halved the deficit on 25 minutes through a superb effort from Craig Jones, but they were undone again at a crucial time when Luke Fountain restored the away side’s two-goal cushion in first half stoppage time.

After the interval saw the visitors all-but seal another vital three points on the hour mark when Dave Maddock extended his fine run of form in front of goal with his first of the afternoon for Darren Jones’ men.

The prolific forward benefitted once again from some prolonged possession on 65 minutes to fire in his brace, but United fought hard right until the end and managed another consolation late on that came courtesy of Adam Gage.

Glan Conwy also picked up a notable success on their travels with a 3-1 victory at Bodedern Athletic.

Conor Davies was in excellent form throughout and was rewarded with a two-goal salvo either side of half time, with Ian Pattinson also on target with a thunderous long-range strike.

Athletic were in the game right until the death, but Glan managed to hold firm despite Richard Williams and Aden Clarke netting for the home side.
