24 MARCH 2012

Poor home form continues to dog Bangor who were held at home by big spenders Llanelli on a sunny afternoon at Nantporth.  

This latest setback leaves City trailing TNS by four points with three games left to play in this truncated season. That sounds oddly familiar.  

The day itself started with a double shock as captain Jamie Brewerton was shoved into conceding an "own goal" which was promptly disallowed.  

City responded through Les Davies who headed Dave Morley's cross goalwards but Craig Richards gathered comfortably. On seven minutes Davies ran through thanks to Neil Thomas but pulled his shot wide to the right. Chris Venables headed over from a Llanelli corner but moments later The Reds were awarded a penalty for a trip on Rhys Griffiths.

The lanky striker dusted himself on a fired low - but Lee Idzi dived full length to his right and pulled off a great save!  

Young Llanelli midifielder Scott Evans was enjoying a fine first half, so too Dave Morley who was organising the blues midfield.   Within two minutes of the penalty miss City were ahead. An Alan Bull corner from the left was headed home by Les Davies from six yards with Richards rooted to the spot on the Llanelli goal.

The visitors went close minutes later but Craig Williams fired wide from the left.   On the half hour Llanelli broke after a spell of home pressure, Williams again dangerous on the left but Michael Johnston's well timed tackle snuffed out the danger. Sion Edwards attacked down the left, saw his cross blocked and charged down the clearance to keep ball near the Llanelli goal.   With half time fast approaching - into the added time allowed - Alan Bull turned and fired home from close range despite the attention of the Llanelli defence, to make the half time score 2-0 and set a positive tone to the hundreds of half time debates.


No changes at the interval with City now attacking the Farrar End of the ground.   But it was Jason Bowen who went close with a volley over from Craig Williams' cross from the left. On 49 minutes a clear yellow card for Corbisiero for a last ditch foul on Sion Edwards on half way as City looked to break. Lee Idzi had to be alert to save from Craig Williams who shot goalwards from six yards.  

Bangor pushed forward through Alan Bull whose run infield from the right freed Sion Edwards on the left. His fierce strike skimmed the crossbar with a 3-0 advantage inches away.  Craig Williams replied for Llanelli with a cross to Rhys Griffiths but he headed straight at the perfectly positioned Idzi from close range.  

On 58 minutes a lengthy stoppage ensued as Griffiths clattered both Dave Morley and Michael Johnston, the latter requiring treatment to a head injury. No punishment for the Llanelli centre forward. On the hour Jordan Follows replaced Scott Evans who had been busy in centre midfield.  

On 68 minutes Peter Hoy was yellow carded for handball and within seconds Mark Smyth replaced Sion Edwards.  Four minutes later Kyle Wilson came on for Alan Bull as the heat took its toll. Bangor instantly created a chance for Damian Allen after Dave Morley and Mark Smyth combined but the midfielder fired over.  

With fifteen minutes remaining Craig Moses replaced Jason Bowen and within seconds Llaneli hit the post, but before Bangor could gather breath substitute Jordan Follows netted from close range. City promptly sent on Clive Williams for a weary Peter Hoy and Llanelli replaced Corbisiero with Chris Llewellyn and switched to a three man attack.  

Four minutes from time The Reds bagged a deserved equaliser as Chris Venables pounced on a loose ball in the box and prodded home to the delight of the three long travelling supporters.

Both Les Davies and Kyle Wilson went close but to no avail as referee Jones added just three minutes despite six substitutions and that stoppage on 58 minutes.   Nonetheless a draw was probably a fair result and City must hope that Bala or Llanelli do them a favour in the run in.
