AN impressive second half display saw Prestatyn Town secure a 4-2 home friendly win over Ashville.

The Seasiders were behind at the break but turned in a much-improved display after the interval, bouncing back from their loss to Vauxhall Motors at the first opportunity.

The visitors got their noses in front in the first period when Sam Hunt made the most of the space afforded to him to fire into the net, which is an advantage they held

After the break saw the hosts up the tempo and they were rewarded almost immediately following the restart when Macauley Taylor timed his run perfectly at the far post to steer home a cross and level matters.

This was met by a strong response from the away side, who regained the advantage shortly after the hour mark when a blistering counter-attack presented a chance to Tyler Smith, who made no mistake with the finish on 61 minutes.

The away side almost double their advantage soon after when Dan Roberts hacked a certain goal off the line on 63 minutes, which proved to be crucial in the overall outcome of the friendly fixture.

Neil Gibson’s side were presented with a fantastic chance to get back on level terms once again when Rob Hughes was felled in the box on 81 minutes, and the midfielder dusted himself off to fire in the spot kick and equalise once again.

Town were now fully in the ascendancy and they went ahead for the first time on 83 minutes when Ben Maher continued his fine pre-season with another fine finish, and the Seasiders’ wrapped things up late on when recent signing from Llandudno Kai Edwards’ deflected effort found the target.
