LLANDUDNO moved into the JD Cymru North’s top eight with a resounding 4-1 home triumph over Porthmadog.

The one-time Europa League qualifiers produced arguably their most impressive display of the campaign against their struggling opponents at the Giant Hospitality Stadium, and they will be aiming to take this good form into the next fixture at unbeaten Bangor City on Saturday (2.30pm).

The home side got off to a bright start and went ahead on 13 minutes when skipper and midfield talisman Danny Hughes managed to head in a corner to break the deadlock after missing a good opportunity during the opening exchanges.

Tudno managed to double their cushion on 35 minutes when Anthony Marshall rose superbly to turn in a Hughes delivery, and at the other end Shaun Pearson had to be at his best to divert a thumping free-kick from Jay Gibbs to maintain their two-goal advantage at the interval.

After the break saw Port come out with a renewed sense of purpose and they were rewarded for their improved tempo when a Josh Banks effort deflected past Pearson to reduce the arrears.

Former Llandudno player Telor Williams had a golden chance to level matters soon after when he was sent through on goal, but Pearson held firm in the Tudno goal to block the chance and the danger was averted.

They were made to pay for this crucial miss on the hour mark when a sensational piece of individual skill from Robbie Parry presented a chance to Bryan Roberts, who made no mistake with the finish to extend their lead once again.

In-form striker Dean Seager managed to finally make sure of the points in stoppage time when he capitalised on a defensive error before producing a composed finish to complete the scoring and net his fourth goal in seven games.
