THE Lakesiders battled back to ensure they secured a share of the spoils from a JD Welsh Premier League away day over the weekend.

Bala Town were certainly animated by new signing John Disney's late leveller, which ensured his side claimed a point at Maesdu Park.

At a windy Llandudno, it was a game of two totally different halves of football, with the points being shared in the end.

It was a poor opening 45 minutes from the point of view of the Lakesiders, who looked out of sorts.

From the outset, it was Llandudno who got a hold of the game and their first opportunity arrived when James Joyce’s shot was saved by Bala number one Ashley Morris after only two minutes.

As the hosts continued to press, Marc Williams fired over the bar a few minutes later.

New Llandudno signing Wes Baynes tested Morris, who pushed away his effort, but Llandudno eventually gained a deserved lead after 21 minutes.

A break down the right resulted in a cross being headed into the net by Marc Williams at the back post.

The home side's dominance continued after this goal, with Mike Williams driving over the crossbar and then Toby Jones beat three Town players to release Joyce, who found Baynes, but he volleyed over the top.

An improvement was needed by the Lakesiders in the second half and this is how things panned out.

Lewis Short was introduced shortly into the second half and this change kick-started things for the visiting side.

New signings John Disney and Short combined down the wing and this attack resulted in a corner, showing Town’s fresh second half intentions.

A break on the left saw Ian Sheridan’s cross being cleared by Mike Williams at the expense of another corner and this set piece was then headed over by Jones.

Will Bell went close from yet another Town corner, before Evan Horwood’s free kick picked out Jones, but his strike didn’t have enough power and it was collected by home keeper David Roberts.

Bala were really taking the game to Llandudno, with Lewis Short’s opportunity being blocked on the line, prior to Mike Hayes’ shot being toe-poked away by Tom Dix.

With 78 minutes on the clock, Town managed to level things up.

Evan Horwood’s corner picked out Les Davies, whose header was flicked towards the far post and Disney got on the end of it to make sure the ball went into the net.

The final 10 minutes saw Llandudno drop deep as they tried to hold on for a point.

Town put on more pressure as time ticked away, but the points were ultimately shared and over the course of the 90 minutes, this was a fair outcome.
