CONWY Borough bounced back from their thumping against JD Cymru North leaders Prestatyn Town with an impressive 2-1 triumph at Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochant.

The Tangerines’ were on the wrong end of a 7-0 drubbing at the hands of the Seasiders’ last week but responded in the best possible fashion on their travels, leaving Warren Gibbs’ side occupying fifth position in the standings ahead of their clash against Ruthin Town at Y Morfa on Saturday (2.30pm).

Things could not have gone better in the early stages for the visitors, who went ahead with just five on the clock when Iolo Hughes reacted first to an initial save from Llan goalkeeper Jimmy Hayns to fire in the opener.

This joy proved to be fleeting as the home side got back on level terms after ten minutes when Matt Williams’ deflected effort narrowly evaded visiting custodian Ben Heald and went in off the post to restore parity to the score-line.

The away side bounced back in fine fashion and controlled possession for long periods thereafter, and their persistence paid off on the half hour mark when forward Cory Williams became the latest to benefit from a parried shot by Hayns to put his side back in front.

After the break saw Joe Vaughan and Sam Thomas spurn good chances during the initial stages of the second period, but the Tangerines’ weathered the storm and managed to see out the remainder of the game in comfortable fashion to get back to winning ways at the earliest opportunity.

Next up for Borough is a Ruthin Town side who have undergone a management change following the departure of long-serving boss Chris Williams, and they come into the game on the back of a narrow home loss at the hands of Colwyn Bay.
