Aaron Pomeyie's goal in the 7th minute of the game gave Llandudno the lead, but Flint found an equaliser through Mark Cadwallader as soon as the second half started.

The early of the stages of the game was evenly matched with both sides having some possession but not really creating anything.

Llandudno did manage to strike first with an early goal though when Scott McHarrie intercepted the ball well and found Pomeyie on the right, he played a one-two with Dean Seager and slotted the ball past John Danby.

Flint responded well to going a goal down and had four really good chances in the space of 10 minutes, but Shaun Pearson was in top form to deny each one.

Llandudno could have doubled their lead though on the half hour mark when Robbie Parry struck well from outside the box but it just went over the bar.

After going into half-time with a 1-0 lead, it was quickly lost when the match restarted with Flint having an early corner which was met with the head of Mark Cadwallader which hit the crossbar on way to going just over the line.

Aaron Pomeyie put Robbie Parry through on goal on the 57th minute but he was brought down by goalkeeper John Danby just outside the box, which he was yellow carded for.

Bailey Jackson took the resulting free-kick and hit it hard and low but the keeper managed to hold on to the ball.

Llandudno were having a good amount of chances, first with Lee Thomas shooting from range that forced another good save by Danby, and then Sam Downey went close to heading the ball home on the 65th minute but he just couldn't reach Parry's corner.

Pomeyie was causing trouble on the right wing throughout the game with his skilfull play, and was putting some good crosses in but nothing came of it.

Jacob Farleigh, Fosu Mensah and Bryan Roberts came on for Jackson,Pomeyie and Seager in the 76th minute, and Farleigh could have got the winning goal after coming back from injury when Fosu-Mensah's shot found him in the box but once again Danby denied Llandudno.

In the 90th minute, Flint had their best chance to steal alll three points when another corner troubled Llandudno, but this time the header was straight to Pearson.

The full time whistle blew and Llandudno can be happy with earning a point against the side closest to Prestatyn at the top of the table.

Llandudno travel to Llangefni on Friday as they look to extend their unbeaten run to four games in the JD Cymru North.

STARTING ELEVEN: Pearson; Jackson (Farleigh), Stephens, Marshall, McHarrie; Downey, Hughes (C), Parry; Thomas, Seager (Fosu-Mensah), Pomeyie (Roberts).
