Colne Go Nap at Colwyn Bay

By

Colne moved nearer the play-offs with an emphatic win at Colwyn Bay on Saturday

Despite going a goal down early on, the Reds bounced back with five goals to clinch a well earned three points.

Colwyn Bay had the better of the early exchanges and Craig Pritchard caused problems for the Reds defence with his darting runs forcing good clearances from the Colne area by Alex Coleman. After 16 minutes, Colne fell behind when a corner kick was played high to the far post and headed home by Ashley Woods to give Colwyn Bay the lead.

Colne looked for a reply and after 25 minutes a period of pressure led to the equaliser when Matty Morgan’s diving header was blocked by the keeper and Reece Webb-Foster fired the loose ball into the roof of the net from close range to level the scores at 1-1.

The Reds pressed forward with further attacks and after 33 minutes took the lead when Webb-Foster’s cross from the right wing was deflected past the keeper by Will Bell for an own goal.

Six minutes later, Simon Nangle won the ball in midfield and found Morgan on the right wing whose low cross was forced home by Ollie Wood to put Colne 3-1 up.

The Reds needed to resist a short period of pressure before half time when Hakan Burton made a great save from Pritchard’s shot and Coleman blocked the follow-up in the goalmouth to deny the home side.

Colne made a lively start to the second half and after 50 minutes increased their lead when Wood headed home Morgan’s cross to put the Reds 4-1 up. Two minutes later, the Reds made it five when Webb-Foster’s run through the middle set up Morgan for a shot past the keeper as Colne turned on the style.

Colwyn Bay responded with some good attacks and pulled a goal back on the hour when Woods blocked a clearance on the edge of the Colne area and fired home to reduce the deficit to 5-2.

The home side continued to look for a way to stage a recovery as Lassana Mendes forced a good save from Burton with a goal-bound shot and Danny Andrews created openings for Colwyn Bay.

But Colne defended strongly and threatened with good breaks at the other end as Waqas Azam gave them fresh impetus in the midfield and ran out comfortable winners at the final whistle.

The result takes the Reds to sixth place, just one outside the play-offs and gives them a great platform on which to build their run-in to the end of the season.
