TEN-man Conwy Borough produced a scintillating fight back to secure a 2-1 victory at Guilsfield.

The Tangerines left it very late to come away with three points in what was manager Warren Gibbs’ first Huws Gray Alliance win since taking over at the helm, and Boro’ now find themselves in tenth spot and six points above the drop zone ahead of their clash with Buckley Town at Y Morfa on Saturday (2.30pm).

Things did not begin well for the visitors as they fell behind on seven minutes when the prolific Steve Blenkinsop fired past Ben Heald, and the stopper endured further misery when he was dismissed for a professional foul.

Returning defender Gerwyn Jones put on the gloves and turned in a polished display despite still suffering the effects of flu, and after weathering the storm they were handed a lifeline in the form of a penalty late on, which forward Corrig McGonigle converted on 88 minutes to level matters.

That was not to be the end of the drama, with the away side clinching a dramatic winner in stoppage time through a superb moment of magic from Sean McCaffrey.

Gibbs, said: “The game couldn't have started any worse for us, 1-0 down and having Ben Heald our keeper harshly sent off in the first 25 minutes.

“We had to reshuffle the shape of the side and concede that we would have less of the ball to a team that keep it well. Credit to centre half Gerwyn Jones for taking up the gloves following Ben’s red card.

“However, the message at half time was if we can stay in the game then opportunities would come. The players put in so much effort to defend our goal that I don’t remember Gerwyn having to make a significant save after half time.

“It is also a credit to the lads and the character in the squad. We are looking forward to every game now with confidence and next week can't come quick enough.”
