LLANDUDNO Albion left it late before eventually securing a 1-1 draw at St Asaph City.

The one-time Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One title challengers have fallen off the pace in recent weeks, but they managed to seal a share of the spoils right at the death to end a disappointing run of recent results.

A scoreless first half was brought to life when Josh Brown successfully converted a chance on 55 minutes to put the Saints’ ahead, and the home side did well to resist some considerable pressure from Darren Jones’ to keep their slender lead intact heading into the dying stages.

Their hopes of a long-awaited league win were dashed when Joel Lloyd popped up with a stoppage time leveller for the away side right at the death after a barrage of balls into the box.

The hosts almost caught them cold with the final attacking action when 16-year-old Dylan Roche went through on goal, but he was thwarted by a superb stop by Liam Jones to ensure both sides had something to show for their efforts.

Albion are now fourth position in the third tier standings and ten points behind current pacesetters Holyhead Hotspur having played a game more than the championship favourites.

Jones’ men will look to continue their amazing FAW Trophy quest this Saturday when they host Welsh League Division One outfit Risca United at the quarter-final stage.
