PRESTATYN Town extended their advantage at the JD Cymru North summit with a 2-0 home victory over Llangefni Town.

The Seasiders’ managed to pick up another three points in their quest for promotion despite being well below their best throughout the clash against the newly promoted side, who did well to restrict the pacesetters with another encouraging display.

It is another crucial week for Town that begins with a trip to former Europa League qualifiers Llandudno on Tuesday night, before Neil Gibson’s men embark on their JD Welsh Cup journey at Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant on Saturday.

The home side began the game on the front foot and almost went ahead early on when an Alex Jones header hit the side-netting, and a quick break on 18 minutes resulted in Robbie Hughes firing a powerful effort over the bar.

They did not have to wait much longer for the opener, which arrived on 22 minutes when James Stead reacted first to a Jordan Davies attempt that came back off the post to put his side ahead from close range.

Things got even better for the hosts soon after when a testing delivery was narrowly diverted in by Jack Higgins to double the Seasiders’ tally with 24 on the clock.

Credit to the visitors, they remained resolute despite not having the ball for extended periods of the half, restricting Town to just one clear cut chance of not during the remainder of the first period when Jones steered an opportunity over.

After the break saw Danny Davies, Michael Parker and Hughes spurn the best chances of the half, but the home side managed to see out the game in comfortable fashion to move eight points clear at the top of the standings.
