Play-off Conference

Aberystwyth Town 0-2 Barry Town United: A goal at the end of each half was enough for Barry Town to pick up all three points on their travels.

Jordan Cotterill gave Barry the lead after 41 minutes before Louis Gerrard put the result beyond doubt with just injury time remaining.

Victory for Carmarthen means Aberystwyth's points cushion above the relegation zone has been reduced to eight points.

Newtown 3-2 Llandudno: A five-goal thriller at Latham Park was won by the Robins thanks to a second-half turnaround.

Llandudno had led at the break, a Jay Gibbs brace giving the visitors a deserved lead.

However a spirited comeback reaped its reward with 20 minutes remaining when Nick Rushton calmly scored a penalty after Ethan Jones had equalised.

Prestatyn Town 0-1 Carmarthen Town: Carmarthen Town won the battle of the bottom two 1-0 at Bastion Road to leave Prestatyn five points adrift at the bottom of the Welsh Premier League.

Liam Thomas' second-half goal was enough to give the Old Gold victory, and draw them to within eight points of safety.
