PRESTATYN Town came from a goal down to eventually secure a 2-1 home win over Buckley Town.

The early JD Cymru North leaders rounded off a superb week that saw them pick up a maximum nine points from three games over a six-day period, leaving them three points ahead of fierce rivals Rhyl ahead of their trip to struggling Porthmadog on Saturday (2.30pm).

Manager Neil Gibson, said: “It was pleasing to get the three points as we weren’t anywhere near the standard we normally set, however it was the third game in six days which is a tight schedule and I expect most of our challenger in and around us thought we might drop points.

“Credit to them, they found a way to cope with the intense pressure at the end and to be fair to Buckley they’ll probably go away from the game thinking they should have got something out of it.

“Sometimes it’s not pretty but the sign of a good team is finding a way to win. They put their bodies on the line and threw themselves at every ball and that is as good as a goal and something that will take you places.

“I can’t be too harsh on them as we had a few missing so had lads coming in who hadn’t played for a while. It takes time for them to bed in, but three points is what we asked for a that’s what we got.”

After Jack Kenny and Jordan Davies spurned chances for the Seasiders’ in the opening exchanges, the visitors took a shock lead on 18 minutes when Aron Williams produced a composed finish past Ryan Woods to break the deadlock.

This joy proved to be short-lived as the home side struck back on 26 minutes through prolific forward Davies, who went on an impressive individual run before unleashing a stunning 30-yard drive into the net.

The crucial moment arrived after the break when Danny Davies turned in a Ben Maher free-kick on 66 minutes to put the hosts ahead for the first time, and they managed to hold firm in the face of prolonged pressure thereafter to secure their sixth victory in seven league contests.
