RHYL goalkeeper Alex Ramsay produced an inspired performance to deny bottom club Bangor City a first home win of the season.

The young stopper made a string of fine saves which, combined with some poor finishing from the home side, saw the north Wales coast derby end in a goal-less draw in front of the Sgorio cameras at Nantporth.

City's Ryan Edwards forced Ramsay into an early save while, at the other end, former Blues' favourite Ashley Stott saw a shot blocked by Sam Hart.

The Lilywhites went close when Levi Mackin drew a good save from home keeper Jack Cudworth but Chris Jones headed over the target for the hosts and Declan Walker's angled free-kick was punched away by Ramsay.

Aaron Bowen had a chance to give Rhyl the lead midway through the first half, but flashed his shot wide from 10 yards out.

Ramsay then parried a Sion Edwards shot before denying Walker and Damien Allen with smart saves.

City dominated much of the second half and went close when Jamie Petrie robbed Dave Thompson, but Ramsay again came to Rhyl's rescue in a one-on-one with Les Davies.

Another outstanding save prevented Petrie from opening City's account from a Davies cross and another Petrie effort was then stopped by Ramsay's feet.

Hart's long range shot was deflected narrowly wide in the closing stages, while Rhyl's Matty Woodword headed a Rob Hughes free kick wide of the target.
