PRESTATYN Town got back to winning ways thanks to a 3-1 home success over Colwyn Bay.

The Seasiders’ remain on the JD Cymru North summit on goal difference after another three points, ensuring they put last weekend’s derby defeat to coastal rivals Rhyl behind them at the earliest opportunity.

Rob Hughes and Kai Edwards missed good opportunities to break the deadlock for the hosts early on, but they did manage to seize the initiative on 14 minutes when a long ball sent Jack Kenny through on goal, and the former Cefn Druids forward slotted past Andy Coughlin to break the deadlock.

Things got even better for Town immediately following the restart when captain Alex Jones fired low past Coughlin on 15 minutes to double their lead.

The Seagulls’ were presented with a golden chance to get back into the game on the half hour mark when they were awarded a penalty after Julian Williams was felled in the box, and skipper Tom McCready silenced the home faithful by successfully converting the spot kick.

After the break saw Kenny and Williams trade chances at both ends during the opening exchanges, with James Stead rattling the post for Town with 66 on the clock.

The Bay stopper had to be at his best to deny Jordan Davies on 69 minutes, and Toby Jones was denied a leveller with 79 on the clock when his goal-bound effort was diverted by a defender.

This miss proved to be telling as the home side restored their two-goal cushion on 82 minutes when Jones despatched his second of the game to complete the scoring.
