RHYL manager Eddie Maurice-Jones urged his side to be more patient following their 0-0 home draw with Penrhyncoch.

It proved to be a frustrating afternoon at the office for the Lilywhites, who spurned a host of good opportunities and also missed a penalty during the stalemate.

This leaves them in fourth spot in the JD Cymru North standings and five points behind leaders Prestatyn Town ahead of their tricky looking trip to Guilsfield on Saturday (2.30pm).

Maurice-Jones, said: “It’s was a frustrating game. To have all that possession and not come away with three points is difficult to take.

“Defensively we were switched on and weren’t troubled at all really, but credit to Penrhyncoch they came with a game plan and it worked for them.

“It’s not just about the penalty miss. We had some good chance in the first half hour and another day they go in and then you can express yourself a bit more.

“After an hour I thought we got a bit frustrated and tried to force things a bit, so we have got to believe in our own ability and be more patient.

“Keeping more clean sheets has been a hot topic with us and we should be achieving more of them with the players we have got, and I believe if we can do that then with our front four or five we are going to come out on top more often than not.”

The home side began the game well with Aaron Hassall, Leo Riley and Steve Thomas all failing to find the net when presented with good opportunities, but they were presented with a golden chance to break the deadlock on 24 minutes when Ben Nash was felled in the box.

Asa Hamilton’s spot kick was parried by the keeper, and the former Airbus Broughton man also went close with a header just before the break.

The second period saw the Lilies’ dominate possession for the entirety to fail to come up with a crucial goal to give them three points, with Nash wasting their best effort late on.
