SECOND half goals from Sam Hart and Kristian Platt saw Colwyn Bay make it 20 league wins in a row with a 2-0 home victory over Gresford Athtletic.

A goalless first half saw them twice hit the woodwork and visitors keeper Matt Busby made saves from Joe Williams and Cai Owen, while Tom McCready shaved the bar with a free kick.

The Bay also had a strong penalty shout waved away when Cai Owen appeared to be brought down in the area.

Gresford were a threat on the break with Jack Crichton having to make good saves from Dominic Deacon’s good run and shot as well as a header from George MacCready.

In the second half Busby did well to turn a Tom Creamer shot onto a post and Lewis Sirrell had one shot held by the keeper and another, from 25 yards, was just over the bar.

The breakthrough, however, came on 58 minutes when Sam Hart scored with a close range header at the far post from Joe Williams’ great cross.

Ten minutes later Tom Creamer provided the cross for Kristian Platt to get his fourth goal of the season with a towering header.

Tom Creamer had a chance to add a third in the dying minutes when Bay were awarded a penalty, but saw his spot kick saved by Gresford’s star man Busby.

“We changed shape to begin with and we didn’t really have a flow. We didn’t have a rhythm and we just stuttered and started,” said manager Steve Evans.

“We weren’t terrible, but we didn’t have that flow and rhythm which we had in the second half.

“Second half we tweaked it a little bit and we said at half-time that we needed a little more energy and control of the game, which we got and we really dominated the second half.

“We don’t get too carried away with the record, we just keep playing one game at a time.”
