Bangor's reshuffled side overwhelmed Lido in the second half after the visitors ran them close in the opening period.
The pre match news centred on Jamie Brewerton who lined up at centrehalf with Shaun Pejic slotting in at rightback. In midfield Dave Morley was ruled out through injury so Craig Garside started for the first time this season.

It all went according to plan with City taking the lead with their first shot on goal. A corner from the left was half cleared but Alan Bull ignored shouts for a penalty to drive home from eight yards on four minutes to the delight of the St Pauls Enders sheltering under hats and umbrellas.

Lido responded through Leon Jeanne whose twenty yarder was pouched by Lee Idzi. The well travelled Jeanne was up against Shaun Pejic on the visitors left. On ten minutes Tyrone Toppar fired wide but on thirteen the visitors drew level. Toppar broke on the right despite loud shouts for offisde, crossed to Jon Hood whose calm finish beat Lee Idzi and rolled into the net.

On twenty minutes 31 year old referee Wayne Stephens angered the home fans by showing a yellow card to Chris Jones for failing to retreat ten yards at a freekick which the visitors had moved forward by half that distance. City won their second corner of the afternoon before Craig Garside was also cautioned for a late challenge on Andy Hill.

Lido showed some fine touches with LiamMcCreesh much involved and Andrew Mumford putting his experience to good use.

By now though the visitors were also going through a varied array of timewasting techniques which clearly pleased their bench. In response Stephens added one minute at the end of the 45. In the dying moments Les Davies set up Sion Edwards but his shot was well held by Chris Curtis.

Referee Stephens brought an end to the first half with little to stay in the memory for too long but with the blues faithful set for a drier 45 minutes at the Farrar End.


No changes at the interval but five minutes later Bangor regained the lead. Alan Bull ran through midfield and sent Sion Edwards out wide on the left. His deep cross was headed firmly home by Les Davies from eight yards. Moments later the same combination again as Bull released Edwards but his shot was blocked for a fourth Bangor corner which was cleared.

This heralded a long period of Bangor domination. Pejic had Jeanne in his pocket, Brewerton was heading everything that came near him, Thomas and Garside had a grip in midfield and Alan Bull looked back to his best. Three more corners followed as City cranked up the pressure which culminated in Craig Garside going close from in front of goal.

On 62 minutes Jeanne gave up the ghost and was replaced by Mark Jones whilst Gavin Jones came on for Toppar. It changed nothing as Chris Roberts fired well over from long range but on 63 minutes it was 3-1. A deep corner from the left was half cleared but found Chris Jones on the right whose low shot was deflected home through a crowd of legs.

Craig Garside fired over as Bangor looked for a fourth, James conceded an eighth corner before on 74 minutes Mike Walsh came on for Neil Thomas who had enjoyed a fine afternoon in the blues midfield. City were now passing fluently and dominating possession with the sure footed Pejic and Garside catching the eye. At times it resembled "keep ball" although Lido looked dangerous on the break when they did gain possession.

With thirteen minutes to go Les Davies trouped off to be replaced by Kyle Wilson. Lido sub Mark Jones forced Lee Idzi to save with his feet as the former Llanelli frontman charged through. Seven minutes remained when City went 4-1 up. Alan Bull collected the ball on the right and crossed for Kyle Wilson to score from lcose range with a first time contact. It was move started by the new striker with some excellent control on half way and a top draw finish to add.

The closing minutes saw a couple of late Lido subs, Eddie Jebb came on for Chirs Jones, as Bangor continued to press with Kyle Wilson, Alan Bull and finally Wilson again going close but Curtis stood firm. Credit to Lido who played some decent football and never resorted to strong arm tactics, but this was Bangor's day and in particular a welcome return by Jamie Brewerton who was first to everything.
