COLWYN Bay manager Craig Hogg had no complaints after his side’s incredible winning run ended with a 2-1 home loss to Porthmadog.

The Seagulls’ had triumph on seven straight occasions in all competitions prior to their defeat against a resurgent Port outfit, leaving them occupying third in JD Cymru North ahead of their home encounter against Bangor City on Friday evening (7.45pm).

Hogg, said: “We got what we deserved and I have no complaints over the result.

“I had genuine concerns going into the game, because with a change of manager at Porthmadog, there’s always a certain degree of reaction. We witnessed that reaction in full swing.

“From our point of view, we played well in patches and that was the most frustrating thing for me.

“We haven’t performed anywhere near the levels we are capable of. We scored a good team goal, but that was against the run of play and in reality, Andy (Coughlin) has made three good saves before that.

“There was a big turning point in the game of course, with the penalty awarded against us, because for me Alex (Downes) has made a good tackle and it’s not a foul in or out the box.

“But to use that as an excuse would be extremely unfair to all at Porthmadog, who were excellent value for the win on the balance of 90 minutes.”

Both sides spurned good chances during the opening quarter of the game, with the home side drawing first blood on the half hour mark when Mitch Bryant finished well after good work from Darren Thornton.

Alex Downes’ thumping effort from 30 yards rattled the cross bar soon after for the hosts, and this proved costly as Port levelled matters on 37 minutes when Iddon Price turned in from close range.

After the break saw the visitors handed a golden chance to take the lead when they were awarded a penalty, and Ilan ap Gareth fired in the spot kick to give his side a vital three points.
