Football: Buckley Town need to rediscover goal trail as Porthmadog come calling

BUCKLEY Town return to action tomorrow evening at Globe Way as they entertain mid-table rivals Porthmadog.

It is an opportunity for Gareth Thomas’ side to put a little daylight between themselves and Porth with both sides level on points.

But Buckley will need to rediscover their goalscoring form after a goalless draw at home to Cefn Druids on Saturday.

With Matty Hughes suspended Thomas made two changes, putting Adam Eden on the bench and bringing in Ant Lipson and Tom Smith.

On a heavy pitch Buckley had the majority of chances in the first half but they failed to convert.

The second half saw Druids try to hit the Bucks on the break but right at the end former Buckley forward Mike Burke had a golden chance to win the game when he somehow missed the target from five yards out with the goal at his mercy.

FLINT TOWN UNITED were disappointed to draw on the road as their game at Rhayader ended 2-2.

The Silkmen took the lead on 17 minutes when Ross Rule played in a low cross and Aaron Edwards diverted it home.

But within two minutes the hosts had equalised.

Paul Davies’ men bounced back however and restored their lead before half-time, Edwards turning provider as his cross was cleared as far as Mitch Roberts who lashed his shot home from the edge of the box a minute before the break.

The second half saw Flint maintain their pressure but Rhyader show a little more spirit.

And just after the hour mark that spirit paid dividends as Rhayader drew level again.

Poor defending from a corner left Christian Jones unmarked at the far post and he knocked the ball home to restore parity.

And it could have been worse 60 seconds later as Flint goalkeeper Mike Jones was called upon to make a great save to deny Mike Collister.

RHYDYMWYN returned from Holyhead Hotspur empty handed having lost 3-1.
