PRESTATYN Town reached the JD Welsh Cup’s last sixteen with a determined 2-1 success at Penrhyncoch.

The Seasiders’ gained revenge on a side that beat them in a JD Cymru North fixture a fortnight ago to reach the fourth-round stage, and Town will look to take this momentum into next Saturday’s clash at home to newly promoted Corwen (2.30pm).

A strong start from the away side saw them go close on seven minutes when defender Kai Edward fired over following a corner, but they did not have to wait too much longer to break the deadlock as Danny Davies found the net following fine approach play from Alex Jones with nine on the clock.

The Roosters’ responded well to the setback and restricted Town to few opportunities for the remainder of the first period, with experienced forward Jack Kenny, Davies and Dan Roberts all fluffing their lines when presented with chances midway through the half.

Another telling moment in the tie arrived on 40 minutes and once again it was Davies who was the difference-maker, latching on to a Kenny through ball before finishing well to double their advantage After the break saw visiting stopper Jon Rushton called into action on 58 minutes with a brilliant save to deny a free-kick, but the hosts were handed a golden chance to get themselves back into the contest a minute later when they were awarded a penalty, for which Michael Parker received a yellow card.

Jack Rimmer was the man tasked with putting away the spot kick, which he did emphatically to reduce the arrears.

This provoked a strong response from the away side, who almost restored their two-goal cushion on a pair of occasions through Jordan Davies and Kenny following the restart, but despite this inefficiency in front of goal they managed to see out the remainder of the tie in comfortable fashion to book their place in the hat.
