LLANDUDNO Albion remain fourth in the Lock Stock Welsh Alliance Division One standings after a 2-0 win at Llanrwst United.

Darren Jones’ men continued their fine recent run of results to keep the pressure on their fellow title challengers, although they have played more games than those around them and sit five behind current pacesetters Bodedern Athletic.

A tense first half saw both side spurn opportunities to open the scoring, but a turning point arrived after the break when the visitors were awarded a penalty which Adam Hold converted.

United piled the pressure on in the closing stages in search of a leveller, but they were unable to find a way past the resolute Albion rearguard and they sealed the points in stoppage time when a quick-break away was finished off by Hold for his second of the afternoon.

There was no such luck for struggling Llandudno Junction, who remain bottom following a heavy 6-1 home reverse at the hands of Nantlle Vale.

Goals from Daniel Evans and skipper Chris Parry put the away side two-up within the opening seven minutes, and further strikes from Adam Jackson, Rob Daniels (2) and James Bell in the second period put the exclamation point on proceedings.

The Railwaymen did manage a consolation late on through Curtis Cooper, but they remain without a win at the Arriva Stadium so far this term and now find themselves 11 points adrift of safety.
