Llandudno secure another well earned point against Caernarfon

By Geraint Roberts

After playing them just three days prior at the Oval, Llandudno have drawn against Caernarfon for the second time this season.

It was Caernarfon who took the lead first this time, only for a penalty to be given for us just minutes later after a foul on George Harry allowed Mark Connolly to get his 99th Welsh Premier League goal.

Llandudno started off the better side and forced the referee to give two yellow cards to the away side in the first ten minutes.

Connolly hit the post with a free-kick after just seven minutes, whilst Toby Jones and a few long range strikes at goal that didn’t trouble the goal.

Captain Danny Hughes went close not long later when Jones’ corner found his head but it just went over the crossbar.

Caernarfon were forced to make two early substitutions half way through the first half, bringing on Jamie Crowther and Gareth Evans for the injured Danny Brookwell and Gareth Edwards

Two more Caernarfon players were booked before the first half ended, along with Zyaac Edwards also going into the referee’s book before the whistle.

Our keeper, Connor Roberts was barely troubled in the first half and the second half started with it being a more cagey affair, with no team able to create anything clear cut.

On the 65th minute, Llandudno went so close to taking the lead when the ball was slipped through to Leo Smith who put it past the keeper but the post agonisingly denied the on-loan from Wrexham man.

Four minutes later, Caernarfon took advantage of a defensive error from the otherwise solid
Ben Clark, but Sion Bradley made no mistake in tucking the ball beyond Roberts’ reach.

Two minutes later there was the instant reply though, with George Harry being bundled over from behind, giving the referee no option but to point to the spot.

Mark Connolly stepped up and put the ball beyond the Caernarfon ‘keeper, giving us the deserved equaliser.

Darren Thomas went close to giving the away side the lead for the second time, but Roberts made himself big to deny the goal.

With just five minutes left on the clock, it was nearly the dream start to 2019 when Alun Webb lofted a brilliant cross in for George Harry that was asking to be headed home, but it went just wide of the post.

The referee blew his whistle to signal the end of the game and both teams walk away with a point a piece, with a huge game coming up next against Llanelli, there are definitely positives to take from the point and the performance.
