LLANGEFNI Town remain in a fight for their JD Cymru North future after suffering a 2-0 loss at Penrhyncoch.

The newly promoted side were undone by two first half goals that they were unable to recover from, leaving Chris Roberts’ men fifth from bottom and one point ahead of Buckley Town having played four more times than their relegation rivals.

Cefni face another significant test of their credentials this Friday when they welcome title chasing Flint Town United to Cae Bob Parry (7.45pm).

Despite the eventual result it was the away side who carved open the first chance on seven minutes when Jake Jones rifled in an effort that crashed off the inside of the post and away from danger.

This early misfortune in front of goal came back to haunt them on the quarter hour mark as Ifan Burrell took advantage of some hesitant defending to steer past Tyler French to break the deadlock.

Things went from bad to worse for the visitors soon after when another neat passage of play from the Roosters’ on 31 minutes presented an opportunity to Steff Davies, who made no mistake with the finish to double their advantage.

After the break saw Cefni throw caution to the wind in pursuit of a route back into the contest, but they were unable to take any of the chances that came their way thanks in no small part to the performance of home custodian Leroy Jenkins.

The Pen stopper was at the top of his game on his way to a series of incredible saves that proved crucial and condemned Town to their 11th defeat in 22 second tier games.
