IT must have felt unusual for Llyr Morris to score a goal against Llanfair!

Morris was banging them away for Llanfair a few months back in Summer League action, however he was happy to find the back of the net versus Llanfair United as Ruthin Town gained a much needed three JD Cymru North points.

On a cold afternoon, Ruthin boss Chris Hardy named an unchanged line-up for the home encounter.

Ruthin started the game well and they managed to take the lead after only six minutes.

Veteran centre half Kevin Evans was in the right place at the right time when the ball fell to him six-yards out after a poor clearance from an Ilan Hughes corner.

The game was developing with Ruthin seeing plenty of the ball.

Meanwhile, Llanfair we’re happy to soak up this pressure and try to hit Ruthin on the counter attack.

Town had a penalty appeal turned down on 40 minutes after Llyr Morris ran into the box, but these shouts were turned down by the referee.

Ruthin did manage to double their advantage on the stroke of half time.

Osian Davies won the ball high up the field and played in Gwion Owen, who was upended by the goalkeeper as he was bearing down on goal.

On this occasion a penalty was awarded and Llyr Morris confidently converted it to give his side a 2-0 half-time lead.

The second half started with Ruthin again on top.

Town were pressing much higher up the pitch and the players were giving striker Morris more support.

Morris had two good chances to make it 3-0 in the first five minutes of the half, with one opportunity being cleared off the line, while the other was well saved by the keeper.

Out of the blue in the 53rd minute, a defensive error by Kev Evans allowed Llanfair to break.

A square pass was finished well by Llanfair striker Josh Astley to haul the visitors back into the contest.

This spurred Ruthin Ruthin on again and they regained their two-goal cushion on the hour.

A good move saw Morris play in Dan Cox and he finished well from 12 yards when one-on-one with the keeper.

As a result of this goal, Llanfair were now pushing more men forward and that left Morris with room to attack.

Ruthin eventually wrapped up the three points when they grabbed their fourth goal of the afternoon.

Once again, Morris was involved when he played in Wil Owen and from a tight angle, he finished well to the far post.
