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