AFTER grabbing a last-minute point at Carmarthen on Saturday, Prestatyn are back in action at Bastion Gardens against Bala this week.
Town triumped 2-1 at Bala earlier in the season but the visitors are likely to be a much tougher proposition this time as they have climbed the table in recent weeks with an unbeaten run of seven games.
On Sunday, Bala won by the odd-goal-in-five against Afan Lido with former Rhyl favourite Mark Connolly grabbing a couple of goals.
Saturday’s match kicks off at 2.30pm.
A last-gasp penalty by Michael Parker saved a precious point for Town at Carmarthen on Saturday.
Having hammered the West Walians 7-1 earlier in the season, the Seasiders were handed an early numerical advantage on five minutes when Julian Allsopp was red-carded for an over the top challenge on Gareth Wilson but five minutes later it was ten-man Carmarthen who went ahead.
Liam Thomas beat Dave Hayes for pace and as he bore down on goal, Jon Hill-Dunt raced out and brought him down inside the box. Thomas slotted the spot kick home but the setback seemed to galvanise Town.
Michael Parker sent a fine volley just wide and on 21 minutes it was all square when Gibson played the ball forward, Jason Price got a touch and ross Stephens drilled a crisp finish past Steve Cann in the home goal.
Early in the second half Price headed Anthony Stephens' cross wide under pressure from Rees and was then involved in an accidental clash of heads with Liam McCreesh which left both men seeing stars for a few minutes.
Dunt then saved on the line with his feet from McCreesh as play swung from end to end.
On 65 minutes Wilson's 25 yarder brought a fine stop from Cann who cleared quickly and with seconds Hill-Dunt was in action, diving to stop Liam Thomas's shot.
Three minutes later Town were behind when Price handballed during a frantic piece of action in the penalty area and Thomas stepped up to dink the ball past Hill-Dunt.
With everything to do now, Parkinson rattled the underside of the bar from 18 yards on 71 minutes and as the Seasiders ramped up the pressure, the lively ex-Tranmere striker sent another shot a foot over the woodwork.
The drama ended in the 94th minute when Parkinson was fouled in the box by Neil Smothers and Parker showed great composure to level the scores.
