Reserves Battle their Way to Another 3 Points

A solitary goal from Rory Kelly earns Bangor City Reserves a 1-0 win at Llandudno Junction

With Sunday's big WPL Development clash against TNS on the horizon, Bangor City Reserves were shorn of several key players for Saturday's Welsh Alliance Reserves Division fixture at Llandudno Junction's Flyover Ground.

On a bright but bitterly cold afternoon, the youthful Citizens Reserves line-up found chances few and far between in an evenly contested opening period. With much of the play congested into midfield, any thoughts of a repeat of the previous Friday's handsome 10-1 win against the same opponents were soon banished.

City did threaten periodically and the best opportunity of the half fell to Adam Evans, but the youngster somehow contrived to miss the target when well positioned in front of goal. The hosts also created the occasional chance but City guardian Leon Jones was on hand to save the only on target shot of the half.

Half-Time: Llandudno Junction Reserves 0-0 Bangor City Reserves

The Citizens stepped up a gear in the second half and generally dominated both the possession and the territory. Sam Jones was introduced into the action as he replaced Adam Evans up front.

The breakthrough came just after the hour mark when striker Rory Kelly scored what proved to be the only goal of the game on 63 minutes with a neat finish inside the area.

Under-19 Development Team captain Ifan Emlyn Jones was then brought into the match as a second half substitute as City sought to steady any nerves and impose their authority on the middle third.

Further chances were created but The Citizens were unable to add to the scoreline as the clock counted down. One late opportunity saw goalscorer Kelly rattle the Junction upright with a powerful effort. The ball rebounded off the inside of the post to present the striker with a second bite at the cherry but he blasted over with the goal at his mercy.

It ended 1-0 to the Citizens, which sees them narrow the gap to leaders Denbigh Town to just 4 points with a game in hand. Attention now turns to the crunch fixture next Friday (27 January) when Bangor travel to Denbigh's Central Park ground (7:30pm Kick Off) for the Welsh Alliance FL Reserves Division's match of the season.
