PLAYER-manager Mark McGregor was proud of his players as Gap Connah's Quay ended a depressing eight-match losing streak against Prestatyn on Friday night.

The Nomads led two-nil before goals from Gareth Wilson and Sean Hessey ensured the game ended all-square and McGregor said: "I am delighted to stop the rot.

"The lads were very happy after the game, they were happy with the performance and to not lose.

"There are mixed emotions when you are 2-0 up with 15 minutes to go, but we couldn't kick it out of our own half due to the wind.

"It says Prestatyn scored in the 90th-minute but there were seven minutes added on and a few weeks ago we would have gone on to lose."

But Seasiders' boss Neil Gibson was not satisfied with the outcome.

"I felt we controlled the majority of the game and should have won it comfortably," Gibson said.

"We gave away two very bad goals and the whole game summed-up our season in that we didn't take our chances and got punished for our mistakes.

"We're running out of time fast to make the top six and I'd have to say we're an outside bet now."

Rhyl manager Greg Strong was delighted with his side's response to a 2-0 defeat at Newtown last weekend as his charges beat high-flying Carmarthen 2-0 at Belle Vue.

"We put in a fantastic performance, it was night and day compared to last week," said Strong.

"We knew a big shift was needed against the wind in the first half, but in the second half we stayed positive, kept two up front and went on to win the game.

"The lads put their bodies on the line, were brave and we counter-attacked effectively when we could."

Despite his side becoming the first to take anything from Park Hall this season, Bala Town chief Colin Caton was not satisfied with a 1-1 draw against The New Saints.

"We dealt with the conditions better than them and in the second half we dominated the game," he commented.

"They were happy to hear the final whistle and on other nights we could have won, it shows how far we have come to go to a full-time team and be disappointed with a draw."
