Llandudno beaten by league leaders Connah's Quay

1 week ago By Geraint Roberts

Llandudno were comfortably beaten by league leaders Connah’s Quay as we remain bottom of the pack in the Welsh Premier League

Goals from Ryan Wignall, Andy Owens and a Callum Morris penalty was enough to see off the Seasiders, as we keep searching for that elusive victory.

Play started off evenly with both sides seeing a lot of the ball and we looked relatively bright, but couldn’t turn the possession into clear cut chances.

Matty Williams struck from distance but did no harm to the Connah’s Quay goal, and just minutes later the Nomads went up the other end and took the lead through Wignall.

There was uncertainty in our penalty area and it was enough for Wignall to take advantage and tap home from close range.

Llandudno looked dangerous at times on the break through the pace of Alun Webb in particular, but still couldn’t create a good enough opportunity to warrant being back level

Llandudno didn’t give in throughout the first half though and kept looking to get balls in the box for Mark Connolly and George Harry, but the ball just never fell kindly enough for the visitors.

The Nomads probably should have made it 2-0 just before the interval when Owens was put clean through but luckily his shot went off the post.

It was 1-0 at the half-time break and Llandudno would have still felt that there could have been something to get out of this game.

Connah’s Quay came into the second half in search of a two goal cushion and pushed Llandudno hard in the first ten minutes in particularly.

It was Steve Thomas who had Llandudno’s best chance to draw level when he picked up the loose ball from a stray Nomads pass, but his shot unfortunately went the wrong side of the post.

The second came after 66 minutes and this time Andy Owens did manage to find the back of the net and give the home side the cushion that they had been craving.

Owens hit a volley from around 15 yards out and it had enough power to beat new signing Connor Roberts in the Llandudno goal.

Iwan Williams then decided to bring on John Owen and Leo Smith for Toby Jones and Matty Williams in a late attempt to find a way back into the game.

The second Nomads’ goal calmed the game down and to give the league leaders credit, they showed their quality by controlling the majority of the game after that.

A penalty was then given on the 86th minute for the home side to put the game well and truly beyond us after a Llandudno player was adjudged to have handled the ball.

Callum Morris calmly slotted the penalty home and made certain that they stayed at the top of the league for another two weeks.

It’s Welsh Cup action next up for Llandudno as they face a long trip down to Briton Ferry on Saturday to try and change the club’s recent form around.
