Wales round-up: Tight at the top

There was no separating TNS Llansantffraid FC and Barry Town AFC after victories for both clubs.
There was no separating TNS Llansantffraid FC and Barry Town AFC at the top of the Welsh Premiership after both clubs won this weekend.

Barry bonanza
Defending champions Barry beat Rhyl FC 4-1 at Jenner Park, with second-half goals from Nicky Burke, with two, and Nathan Cotterell sealing the points. Kenny Brown's men had gone in front on 24 minutes but Andy Moran equalised for improving Rhyl just before half-time.

Best of five
Meanwhile, Llansantffraid came from behind to defeat bottom club Llanelli FC 3-2 at Stebonheath Park. The home side twice led through Jeff Aspell and Chris Taylor but Mike Wilde's goal kept the joint leaders in contention before decisive late strikes from Paul Fowler and Gary Brabin. Llansantffraid stay ahead of Barry on goal difference.

All square
Elsewhere, the teams in seventh and eighth places, Connah's Quay Nomads FC and Cwmbran Town FC, drew 1-1 at the Halfway Ground. Tommy Mutton put the home side ahead but Stuart Rain's 18th goal of the season gave Cwmbran a point.

Early baths
Meanwhile, the mid-table battle between Flexys Cefn Druids AFC and Port Talbot Town FC saw four sendings-off and five goals, as Flexys prevailed 3-2. The hosts recovered a two-goal deficit to win through strikes from Joe Desomeaux, Dave Cunnah and Danny Watkins. Finally, torrential rain caused the match between Newtown AFC and Haverfordwest County AFC to be abandoned on 67 minutes with the scores level at 1-1.
