CONWY Borough’s unbeaten run came to an end with a narrow 1-0 loss at Prestatyn Town.

The Tangerines’ pushed the runaway JD Cymru North leaders all the way thanks to another display full of encouragement ahead of a busy week for the club that sees them travel to Bangor City on Tuesday night and host Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant on Saturday.

First team manager Chris Morrell, said: “Our run had to end sometime but it wasn't without a fight and the lads worked tirelessly to try to get a point.

“I thought we really provided them a tough tactical test which I'm sure Prestatyn will agree to and out of possession we were excellent but just needed a bit more composure when in it.

“That will come though as the youngsters are learning with every game so we are still in good spirits going into Bangor on Tuesday night.

“Also, thanks to the travelling support too, its much appreciated."

Blustery conditions at the Motion Finance Stadium saw both sides take their time to adjust to the contest, with Alex Jones forcing a stunning save from Ben Heald to deny the home side an opener from their first chance of note.

Ben Maher was the next to go close when his free kick sailed narrowly over on 36 minutes, with Corrig McGonigle coming within inches of breaking the deadlock at the other end when his strike was tipped away from danger by Town stopper Jon Rushton.

After the break saw the hosts dominate early possession but found the resolute Borough back-line in tremendous form, with their persistence finally paying off on 66 minutes when a thunderbolt from long-range by Danny Davies gave Heald no chance.

The home side’s task was made greater with the dismissals of Jones and Jack Higgins in quick succession on 70 and 74 minutes, and although the visitors threw everything at their opponents in the closing stages it was not enough to salvage anything from the game.
