Late goal denies Bay victory

chrisFirst Team

Alex Davidson’s goal seven minutes from time denied Colwyn Bay their first home league win of the season against Bradford Park Avenue in the Skrill North in a game which finished 2-2 at Llanelian Road. Two goals in a five minutes spell in the first half from Rob Hopley and Louis Moss had given the Bay a 2-1 lead after Chib Chilaka had given Park Avenue a seventh minute lead. Gareth Evans missed a chance to make it 3-1 before Davidson secured a point for the visitors, who extended their unbeaten run to 12 games. Frank Sinclair’s side are now 15th in the Skrill North table. Former Wrexham and Wales Under-21 striker Marc Williams impressed on his Seagulls debut after receiving international clearance late on Friday. “In the first half we played really well, especially after going a goal down. We responded brilliantly to that and should have been 3-1 up at half-time,” Frank Sinclair told Tim Channon.
“I didn’t think Hopley was offside for the disallowed goal, because, for me, the right back was playing him on and it should have stood.
“At 2-1 we’ve also missed some good chances to kill the game off.
“It was always going to be a tough second half because they are a resilient side and that’s why they have gone 11 games unbeaten before today, but I don’t think 2-2 was a fair result. We deserved to win on chances created.”
