ST ASAPH City boss Daniel Brewerton after his side could only muster a 1-1 home draw with Llandyrnog United.

The Saints failed to build on a superb victory last weekend against their fellow Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One strugglers, and the stalemate leaves them third from bottom in the standings with games in hand over the majority of teams around them.

Brewerton, said: “I’m really disappointed with the draw to be honest, after the win last weekend against Greenfield we put ourselves in a great position to climb the table, a win today would have seen us move up to 10th with games in hand on most teams.

“First half we were poor, we conceded a soft goal and gave away possession time after time, second half we were much better, we threw everything at them, we pulled one back and we had plenty of opportunities to win it, but the final ball just wasn’t up to scratch.

“It was a typical derby game, but we need to be beating the teams around us.”

Things did not begin well for the home side, who fell behind after just four minutes when Josh Griffiths took advantage of some hesitant defending to fire into the net.

Credit to the hosts, they responded well to the setback and managed to get back on level terms on 69 minutes when they were presented with a penalty, which forward Duncan Midgley duly despatched.

Despite dominating possession for long periods following the equaliser, they were unable to find a way past the resolute United rearguard to give both sides a share of the spoilt.

The Saints are next in action this Saturday when they host Penrhyndeudraeth (2pm).
