Llanrug United 3-1 Llandudno Albion

Impressive 10 man Llanrug show class as they defeat Llandudno Albion.

Match Report by Jordan Thomas and Photos by Kerry Lloyd Jones.

After the Thursday night draw against Llanberis, Llanrug would've come into this game against third place Llandudno Albion looking to cling on to their slim chances of winning the league.

The game started at a frantic pace, both teams trying to play football and create openings but it was Llanrug who got the first chance, a James Phillips through ball saw Aaron Hughes through on goal but his strike was easily saved by visiting keeper Aaron Hoyle.

A bizarre few minutes afterwards saw home goalkeeper Dylan Roberts sent off, firstly he was given a yellow card for bringing down Conor Davies outside the box, the visitors were desperate to see the keeper given his marching orders but the referee awarded an yellow card.

Allan Davies was unlucky to see his free-kick fire against the crossbar and Llanrug cleared.

A few minutes later, the play was 70 yards from the home goalkeeper but the linesman flagged the referee over and the keeper was given his second yellow for apparently handling outside the box.

Aaron Hughes went into goal and Llanrug were changed into a 4-4-1 formation.

On the 27th minute Llanrug took the lead, Marvin Pritchard did well to win a corner, Joni Sadler's driven corner was prodded in by Llion Jones.
A shock lead for Llanrug but it was well deseved for taking the game to Albion.

Albion were always going to be dangerous on the break with striker David Maddock doing well and combining with Ricky Jones to create an opening but it came to nothing.

Llanrug double their lead soon after with a well worked goal, Dylan Owen played in James Phillips and the right back produced a pin-point cross to find Marvin Pritchard and he headed home from the edge of the box.

Soon after Llanrug scored a magnificent third, Llion Jones was brought down and from at least 35 yards Dylan Owen fired in a fanstastic free-kick, a trademark of the hard working midfielder, the ball bounced off the bar and the linesman awarded the goal.

Half-time and 10 man Llanrug led 3-0 in a half dominated by the sub-par performance of the referee.

Llanrug started the second half well and showed a lot of defensive discipline to keep out the visitors.

The Phillips back four of James, Sion, Gethin and Mathew performing superbly, with the full backs still supporting the attack whatever chance they got.

Luke Phillips had a glimmer to make it 4 in the 60th minute but his shot went wide after he beat Albion captain Joel Lloyd in a challenge.

The visitors got one back soon after, Conor Davies with a cracker from 25 yards beating Aaron Hughes in goal.

Llandudno brought the attack to Llanrug and won a lot of free-kicks which saw Gethin Phillips booked for a handball, soon after Adam Hold saw a yellow for Llandudno Albion for bringing down substitute Gavin Jones.

Albion tried their best to find the second but stand-in keeper Hughes played well, added with a great defensive effort saw them keep the visitors at bay.

Llanrug nearly added a fourth towards the end, Gavin Jones latched on to a long ball and after beating a couple of defenders his strike was fired against the post.

The visitors were looking a frustrated side and Llanrug were well deserving of the win after a fantastic all-round performance.
