Mold Alex’s impressive run ends with defeat against Queens Park
Following victories over Rhostyllen, Brickfield Rangers, and Corwen in the Welsh National League Premier Division, Mold Alex were eyeing their fourth consecutive win on the weekend when FC Queens Park came to Flintshire.
But their day didn’t go as planned, as they were undone by a solitary Mike Latham goal which was enough to give the visitors the win.
The loss leaves Mold in a still strong league position, placed sixth with a game in hand over league leaders Queens Park, keeping them in and around and the top of the table.
After the game, manager Mike Cunningham spoke of his disappointment at his side’s stutter after an impressive run of recent results.
“Very disappointed with our performance, we never really got going and lacked a cutting edge which has been present last couple weeks. We lost three lads within the game and that disrupted us a little.”
After Latham’s early goal, Mold couldn’t find an equaliser against a stubborn Queen’s Park, with Cunningham rueing a lack of chances created during the game.
“I think a draw would have been a fair result, but credit to Queen’s Park they got there goal early and made it a difficult afternoon for us.
“They had their periods within the game and we restricted them to very little clear cut chances. But I don’t think we created enough in the game. Joey Jones the Queen’s Park keeper pulled off a world class save in the first half, which I think was probably our only shot on target which is disappointing.”
The Mold Alex boss is asking his side to make an immediate comeback from the loss this weekend, when they welcome seventh placed Saltney Town, who are just one point below Mold, to Alyn Park.
“Next week again is a difficult task, and the squad will need to massively improve all over the pitch from last weeks performance. We know we let ourselves down a bit on Saturday and we will be looking for a reaction this weekend.”
Mold will move on quickly from the result, but not without taking a lesson from it on the volatility of this year’s Welsh National League Premier Division.
“The league this season is a ruthless one, and the game showed if you fall below a certain level of performance, you get punished we will be working hard this to put it right this Saturday”
