Report: Colwyn Bay 2-2 Farsley Celtic

The Celts were held to a 2-2 draw.

The Celts led twice in this game at Colwyn Bay through a brace from Adam Clayton, but were pegged bag on both occasions as the Seagulls snatched a point. With Lancaster City losing at Droylsden 1-0, Farsley increased their advantage at the top of the table to two points with two games remaining.
Aiden Savory started up-front for the Celts, in an opening forty-five minutes that produced very little in terms of clear cut chances at a bright and breezy Llanelian Road. Despite plenty of possession from the Celts it wasn’t until twenty-six minutes into the game that Farsley had a shot on target through Savory. Eight minutes later, Ryan Watson tried his luck from distance, but his effort was straight at Kieran Wolland. The Celts though may the breakthrough two minutes before half-time. From a corner, Clayton lost his marker and headed Farsley in front just before the break.
Bay made a change in formation for the second-half with Danny Bartle replacing Luke Denson, in a move to boost Colwyn’s frontline. It had the desired impact for the home team, as on fifty minutes, Graeme McKibbin was forced into a good save from Danny Andrews. The Seagulls were level just eight minutes later through Andrews, as he took Danny Bartle’s pass and fired home.
The Celts responded with a change as Peter Davidson made way for Ross Daly. Within four minutes, Farsley had regained the lead. From a Watson free-kick out on the touchline, keeper Wolland’s punch was weak, allowing Savory to fire goal-ward, his effort was blocked, but Clayton was on hand to stab the rebound into the back of the net.
With sixty-eight minutes gone, the Celts were forced into a second change, as substitute Daly had to be replaced, having picked up what looked like a hamstring injury, by Richard Marshall.
As the game entered the final twenty minutes, Colwyn began to exert more pressure and were rewarded with an equaliser on seventy-six minutes. It was however, shrouded with controversy. From a free-kick by the corner flag, McKibbin looked to be fouled by Will Booth as the Celts keeper went to collect the cross. Booth then hit the crossbar and the ball fell to Bartle, who having missed the ball initially, clipped it towards goal. Rainford then looked to have controlled it with his arm before firing in. Despite the protests of McKibbin, Watson and Hardy, the goal was allowed to stand.
In what was the best period of the game, both sides had chances in the last ten minutes to take all three points. On eighty-one minutes, Nightingale played in Savory, but Wolland was quickly out to block the effort. Then Bay had two chances within the space of two minutes for the dangerous Rainford, the first saw him try to lob McKibbin when clear and the second when he cut inside, but pulled his shot wide.
The Celts though had the final effort in time added-on as skipper Hardy got round the back of the Bay backline and pulled back to Nightingale, but his whipped shot cleared the bar. That would in truth have been cruel on Bay, who deserved a point from this encounter.
Farsley now face West Yorkshire rivals Ossett Town on Easter Monday, knowing that if results go their way they could be crowned Champions.
