LLANDUDNO are off the JD Welsh Premier League basement after a dramatic 4-2 home win over Llanelli Town.

Late drama at the Giant Hospitality Stadium saw Tudno secure three points in the final few minutes after being pegged back from a two-goal cushion earlier on in the game.

The result leaves saw them move above Saturday’s opponents and they are now nine points adrift of safety ahead of another pivotal clash at Cefn Druids on Friday (7.45pm).

Assistant manager Mark Cowan, said: “I am still trying to make sense of it. I thought we were done in the 90th minutes but the character and belief that Iwan (Williams) has installed in the group was there for all to see.

“To go straight up the other end of the field to get a third and then a fourth despite defending the lead was unbelievable, and I thought Webby (Alun Webb) deserved his hat-trick as he was outstanding.

“The heart and desire shown by every player was magnificent. When it went to 2-2 I was thinking how could we turn this round and our season could have been over in February, but the lads weren’t having any of it and it could end up being the best thing that’s ever happened to us.

“Whatever happens we can go into the Cefn Druids game with plenty of confidence and we still have to play them at home on the final day, and if we can go into that game with a chance of staying up then that will be an achievement in itself.”

A scoreless game at the break was brought to life on 58 minutes when Webb notched his first of the afternoon, and the same player was on hand to double Tudno’s advantage with 69 gone.

Nerves began to show when the away side reduced the deficit through a Chris Jones penalty on 77 minutes, and there was further heartbreak in stoppage time when Andy Hill produced a late leveller.

Credit to the home side, they remained focussed and got themselves ahead immediately following the restart through skipper Danny Hughes on 93 minutes, and they sealed a vital three points on 95 when Webb sealed his hat-trick.
