Welsh Premier quality changed the game for the Citizens.

The Reserves welcomed Bangor City to Central Park on Friday evening in a clash between first v second in the Welsh Alliance Reserve League.

The first half was an even affair with both sides showing each other respect and none of the chances created being taken by either side. Denbigh changed their shape from the usual set up in an attempt to disrupt the Bangor side, but they also lack fluency to their play in the first half.

After the break, the Denbigh side came out of the blocks quicker and took the lead through a well worked Sean James goal, however within 5 mins, Bangor had equalised when an attempted cross sailed in to the top corner of the Denbigh goal. Denbigh continued to play and another well taken Sean James effort gave them the lead. The officials then conspired against Denbigh, denying them an obvious penalty, and ruling out another goal for a dubious offside at an important stage of the game.

Bangor then introduced Welsh Premier League player Sean Cavanagh, who was able to change the game for Bangor. His influence was difficult for the Denbigh players to contain, and he helped them create to headed goals from crosses into the Denbigh area giving them a 3 - 2 advantage in the dying stages.

Denbigh continued to press for the deserved equaliser and it nearly came from a good move down the right, a cross in to the box, but the ball unfortunately got stuck between the Denbigh forwards feet. In the final minutes, Bangor broke with Town pushing forward to score their fourth and secure a victory against the league leaders.

Denbigh must now regroup and look to win their remaining games of the season and see were the run takes them.
