Hard work for Rhyl to overcome Nomads

HAVING trounced Nomads 5-0 last week, Rhyl were expected to embarrass Jim Hackett's side again but Nomads were made of sterner stuff this time.

The opening of the January transfer window saw seven new signings appear in Nomads' colours and the immediate improvement bodes well for their survival.

Rhyl should have been at least three goals in front by the mid point, but a mixture of poor finishing and Paul Pritchard's heroic goalkeeping kept the score to 1-0.

The only success for the Belle Vue club came in the 30th minute when man-of-the-match Craig Jones cut in from the right to beat Pritchard.
