Bangor Back to Winning Ways

BANGOR City leapfrogged Carmarthen Town into fourth place in the Welsh Premier League with a fine 3-1 triumph at The Book People Stadium.

City made two changes to the side that lost to Airbus, with goalkeeper Dave Roberts, drafted in on-loan from Prestatyn Town, making his first City start in place of the injured Jack Cudworth, while Gerwyn Jones replaced Chris Roberts.

And the Citizens got off to the perfect start, when after just 45 seconds, Anthony Miley was first to react in the area when Jones thundered a header against the bar from a Declan Walker free kick.

Christian Doidge went close as Carmarthen looked for a response, before the equaliser arrived on 20 minutes, when Doidge nodded home a Luke Cummings cross from a Town breakaway.

It took The Blues just seven minutes to regain their advantage though, when a Chris Jones corner fell to Miley at the back post, and his drilled effort was touched in by Jamie Petrie.

Les Davies shaved the crossbar with a header as City threatened to extend their lead, but it remained 2-1 at the break.

The second half saw the Old Gold start brightly, with Doidge shooting at Roberts within the first minute. However, City looked comfortable in keeping out the visitors, restricting them to few clear chances and posing a threat on the break.

The visitors put the match to bed five minutes from time, when Damien Alled fed Davies on the counter, and the Truck produced a deft right-footed chip floating over keeper Scott James and into the top corner, to secure the much-needed three points.
