Llandudno come from behind twice to grab point against Druids

By Geraint Roberts

Llandudno had to come from behind to keep the fight for safety alive after goals from Sam Dool and Alun Webb were enough for the point.

The draw leaves Llandudno now eight points behind Carmarthen and safety, with five games remaining of the Welsh Premier League season.

It was a disappointing start for the away side after Druids striker Dean Rittenberg scored after just six minutes.

Some good individual play from Alun Webb followed on the right hand side and his cross found Les Davies in the box but he couldn’t convert the chance.

Llandudno were pressing well since the Druids opener and this time Ben Clark, went close with a shot from range.

The home side were looking to double their lead when goal scorer Rittenberg was free once again, but luckily only hit the post this time and Druids were denied the two-goal lead.

On the 35th minute, Llandudno got their important equaliser, and it was the in-form Alun Webb who was there to get it with a calm finish into the net.

Toby Jones was forced off through injury just before the half-time whistle was blown, and was replaced by January signing Sam Dool.

Straight after half-time, Druids almost had the perfect restart when they put the goal in the back of our net, but it was brought back for offside.

It was then Llandudno’s turn to hit the woodwork, when Wales C player Kai Edwards’s effort agonisingly hit the post.

Cefn Druids regained the lead on the 67th minute when James Kenny slotted the ball past Shaun Pearson.

But Llandudno showed character to reply instantly this time through Sameron Dool, who found the perfect time to get his first goal for the club.

Both sides were fighting hard for the winner that would be massive for either side, but the spoils had to be shared in the end with Llandudno eventually leaving the Rock with a point.

Other results went Llandudno’s way with Carmarthen dropping points against Aberystwyth and Llanelli losing to Cardiff Met.

There is now a two week break for the club until our next massive game at home to Aberystwyth, where once again all three points must be the target to keep on the tails of Carmarthen and Cefn Druids.
