NICK WARD feels Gresford Athletic aren’t getting the rewards their hard work deserves.

The Wrexham-based outfit twice led through Jack Jones and Jordan MacCarter, but Llangefni hit back through Steffan Jones and Jamie Roberts to earn a 2-2 draw.

Coach Ward, taking charge in the absence of director of football Steve Halliwell, sympathises with his players.

“I’m more disappointed for the lads than anything,” said Ward. “They’ve put in so much hard work and effort over the last few weeks and they aren’t getting the rewards they deserve.

“I’m more than happy with the lads application and it is just a bit frustrating that we couldn’t get the win we wanted.

“We controlled the game and played some good football.”

Ward, who saw Gresford play the last 20 minutes a man light after Nathan Williams saw red, does feel the Clappers Lane outfit were their own worst enemy at times against their fellow strugglers.

“We got in-front just before half time and then there seems a mental block when we come back out,” said Ward. “Their goals have come from our mistakes as well. They’ve come when we’ve tried to force passes.

“But we could have folded when we went down to 10-men and we didn’t. I still felt like we were the better team.”

Llanfair United remain rooted to the foot of the table - and without a win to their name - after being beaten 4-1 at Ruthin Town.

Kevin Evans, Llyr Morris, Dan Cox and Wil Owen struck as Ruthin cruised to victory, with Josh Astley replying for Llanfair.

Porthmadog moved to within a point of Gresford as they twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at Conwy Borough.

A Corrig McGonigle penalty and Liam Morris gave Conwy the lead on two occasions, but John Owen - on-loan from Cefn Druids - and Rhys Alun earned Porthmadog, who had Iddon Price dismissed, a share of the spoils.

Llanrhaeadr were also victorious as they defeated Penrhyncoch 3-0.

Khyam Wyton’s penalty and second-half efforts from Joe Vaughan and Iwan Matthews secured the visitors victory.
