Carmarthen look the better in goalless draw

ALTHOUGH they will be disappointed to have dropped two places in the Welsh Premier following yesterdays result at Bastion Gardens, Prestatyn would have been relieved to pick up a point against a fired-up Carmarthen.

The Old Gold created the better chances throughout and with sharper finishing would have earned the win they desperately need in their battle to finish in the top 10. Prestatyn's best chance came after seven minutes, when a lovely succession of passes between Michael Parker, Neil Gibson and Andy Moran left Steve Rogers with just keeper Neil Thomas to beat.

But the strikers somewhat inadequate shot was comfortably saved. Moran volleyed wide after Gibson won a header in the box but otherwise it was all Carmarthen.

Early in the second period Steve Hoults firm strike was well held by Thomas, then at the other end Hill-Dunt went down smartly to gather a shot from Richard Hughes, who made a dazzling run from his inside his own half before letting fly.

Carmarthen should have scored when Paul Fowlers cross from the right eluded the home defence but Danny Thomas failed to hit the target. The hosts then raised their game, Parker and Ian Griffiths both hitting decent long range efforts which Thomas was equal to. But Carmarthen always looked the likelier scorers, Thomas back-post header kept out by Hill-Dunt.
