A SOLITARY strike was enough to make sure it was a losing weekend in JD Cymru North action for Ruthin Town.

Chris Hardy's charges paid a visit to Llandudno on Saturday, with a first half strike doing the trick to give the home side a three-point haul.

Danny Hughes almost got Llandudno off to the perfect start when he shot straight from kick off and almost caught the goalkeeper Ryan Goldston by surprise, but he tipped the ball round the post.

Robbie Parry had the first clear opportunity of the game when he was set up by Sam Downey, but his shot was too close to Goldston.

At the other end, Ruthin striker Llyr Morris had a good chance to give the away side the lead, but Shaun Pearson saved well to deny him.

The deadlock was broken in the 35th minute.

Robbie Parry drove into space and his shot from around 20 yards out found the bottom left hand corner of the net.

Turning to the second half and after a slow start, a long ball forward was controlled by Bryan Roberts, which allowed him to find Fosu-Mensah, but the Dutch striker's shot was well blocked.

Substitute Aaron Pomeyie made an instant impact for the hosts when he played a good ball to Fosu-Mensah, but his shot didn't have the power to get past keeper Goldston.

Both Pomeyie and Parry had opportunities to put the game to bed, but they couldn't take them, meaning there was a nervy last few minutes for Llandudno, but they held on to take all three points.
