City in three-way tus­sle for top-two slot in Al­liance

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

BAN­GOR City can go sec­ond in the Huws Gray Al­liance - tem­po­rar­ily at least - if they can beat Den­bigh Town at Nant­porth this Fri­day evening.

Vic­tory will edge Gary Tay­lor-Fletcher’s side above Porth­madog, who could then re­gain sec­ond spot with a home suc­cess over fel­low high-fly­ers Flint Town United on Satur­day.

De­pend­ing on re­sults, Rhyl are an­other team which could tech­ni­cally fin­ish the week­end in the run­ners-up berth.

City re­turned to win­ning ways last Satur­day with a 2-0 tri­umph at Buck­ley Town thanks to two late goals.

Ban­gor pretty much con­trolled the first 45 min­utes, re­duc­ing Buck­ley to the odd chance on the break, but it was 0-0 at the in­ter­val.

City earned a penalty when Tay­lor-Fletcher was felled by keeper Joe Makaruk, who made amends when he kept out top-scorer Alex Dar­ling­ton’s spot-kick.

Bucks were much im­proved in the sec­ond half, and if Cal­lum Humphries had hit the tar­get rather than shot high and wide from a cor­ner, things may have been dif­fer­ent.

Ban­gor broke through on 76 min­utes when Marc Wil­liams fin­ished off a deep cross to the back post. Sam Jones added the sec­ond five min­utes from time to seal the points.
