PRESTATYN Town’s recent good run came to a halt as they fell to a heavy 4-0 home loss to newly promoted Buckley Town.

The Seasiders were unable to build on their positive performances of late during what was a disappointing display and they will look to bounce back at the earliest opportunity this Saturday during their trip to Holyhead Hotspur (2.30pm).

Leon Field and Ryan Turner’s men went close early on when Chris Bennett’s effort was well saved after good work in the build-up by Jack Hoult, but their task was made more difficult when Nathanial Hulme was sent off after a robust challenge in the box which resulted in a penalty.

The visitors were unable to take advantage of this golden opportunity as their spot kick was saved by Scott Williams, and things got even worse when Jack Jones’ red card on 29 minutes relinquished their numerical disadvantage.

They picked themselves up from the setback and scored the opening goal of the game on 42 minutes when Adam Eden broke clear and produced a composed finish past Williams to give them a slender cushion at the interval.

Town were dealt another blow when influential defender Sam Kersh was forced off at half-time, and they fell further behind after 49 minutes when Shaun Tinsley diverted a cross into the net.

The home side were presented with the perfect opportunity to reduce the deficit when they were awarded a penalty of their own on 59 minutes, but Hoult’s effort was parried by the visiting custodian.

This proved to be telling as the away side all-but sealed the points on Eden popped up at the far post for his second of the afternoon, and there was still time for another as a superb long-range strike from Jake Roberts in stoppage time rounded off a miserable day at the office for the hosts.
