Crazy Ten Minutes Costs Colwyn

NEW Colwyn Bay boss Gus Williams slammed his side for "a crazy ten minutes" which condemned them to a 3-0 defeat by Hednesford Town at Llanelian Road.

After another disappointing home display in-front of a crowd of under 300, the Seagulls are now firmly in a relegation battle and find themselves in the bottom three, two points away from safety ahead of their trip to Lowestoft Town on Saturday (3pm).

Williams said: "We'd spoken about not giving free kicks away in our own half, so the number of times we did that in the second half was disappointing and we certainly paid for it.

"I thought we were in control of the game in the first half and was confident at half-time, but after the first five or ten minutes of the second half we possibly lacked the desire to close people down and stop the ball at source before it got anywhere near our box.

"You can't sit back and give teams that freedom.

"Ultimately the ball is going to come into the box, and when it did we didn't defend that well enough, which is something we've got to work on.

"We know the position we are in and without a shadow of a doubt we've got big few weeks ahead of us."

The defeat is even more disappointing as the visitors were reduced to ten men on 18 minutes when skipper Darren Campion was dismissed for a rash challenge on Tom Buckley.

Despite dominating possession for long periods, the hosts produced little in the way of chances, with Jordan Bove and Buckley wasting the only chances of note.

Playing against the strong wind in the second half, Bay found things more difficult and fell behind on 68 minutes when defender Paul McCone prodded home from close range.

Their lead was doubled five minutes later when McCone headed in a second from a right wing cross, before the away side secured a vital three points on 77 when Richard Batchelor's scuffed effort found a way past Chris Sanna.

One positive for Bay was that striker Obi Anoruo, who hobbled off after just five minutes with a knee problem, is not expected to miss much playing time.
