THE brilliant form just continues from the perspective of Ruthin Town.

Chris Williams' in form charges made it six Huws Gray Alliance victories for the season with a 2-1 verdict in their weekend meeting at home to Guilsfield.

Ruthin are proving to be tough nuts to crack for the leading lights in the league and after beating title chasing Denbigh in their previous match, Town were too strong for sixth-placed Guilsfield.

It was always likely to be a tough encounter for Ruthin against the Mid Walians, who had only lost twice in the league this season ahead of the game.

Guilsfield's hopes of achieving their ninth league win of the campaign were hit when they were reduced to 10 men in the 25th minute.

Stuart Rogers received received his marching orders when he picked up his second yellow card of the afternoon.

Ruthin responded by then taking the game to their opponents and they took the lead seven minutes shy of the interval.

A handball offence in the box resulted in a Ruthin penalty award and star striker Llyr Morris tucked away the ensuing spot kick to claim his 19th league goal of the season.

The second half started in terrific fashion for Ruthin and Jordan MacCarter doubled his side's advantage just four minutes after the restart courtesy of a cool finish following some fine work on the left by Llyr Morris.

The three points appeared to be in the bag when Guilsfield were then reduced to nine men.

Adam Jenkins received a straight red card for retaliation on the hour mark.

Despite their numerical disadvantage, the visitors refused to throw in the towel and they managed to pull a goal back with a quarter-of-an-hour remaining.

This came following the second penalty award of the afternoon and Asa Hamilton netted from the spot.

The nine men of Guilsfield dominated during the concluding 15 minutes and they had chances to level things up, with Ruthin failing to keep the ball on a heavy pitch.

Ruthin did have opportunities of their own on the break, but were grateful to hear the final whistle to take the three points.
