LLANGOLLEN TOWN manager Luke Maybury has hailed captain Kristian Jones after he saved a last-minute penalty in Saturday’s 3-3 Ardal North East League thriller with Bow Street.

“It was a great result and a huge credit to our captain Kristian Jones, who went in goal at the last minute and saved a penalty,” said Maybury, whose side go to Cefn Albion tonight.

“We’re unbeaten in four, goals coming from many sources and we’ll go there to get the three points.

“Man to man, Cefn are the best team in the league.

“The re-appointment of Micro (Sean Jones) and Ian Andrews was a smart move - they are 100 per cent the best pair for the job.”

Cefn, who still have 10 games to fit in before the end of the season, hope it will be third time lucky after derby dates against Rhos Aelwyd and Penycae have both been rained off in the past week.

Coach Ian Andrews knows it will be tough encounter and said: “Llangollen are on a bit of a roll at the moment and were within minutes of upsetting Bow Street.

“With it being a midweek game, we’ll have to juggle the squad around but we will have a strong squad going into the game.”

There’s a battle of the bottom two at Llanrhaeadr where Welshpool Town are the visitors.

In the North East Wales League’s Premier Division, Connah’s Quay Town host Coedpoeth United.

In the Championship, Johnstown go to Brymbo and Rhydymwyn entertain Yr Wyddgrug.
