Friday, 9 November

Llandudno 2-4 Bala Town: Colin Caton's Bala moved level on points with New Saints with victory at Maesdu Park. Steve Tames gave Bala a first half lead but Llandudno's new signing, ex-Blackpool and Leicester City striker Gary Taylor-Fletcher, brought them level. Tames restored Bala's lead before Henry Jones and Chris Venables sealed the win. Taylor-Fletcher scored his second with a minute remaining but Llandudno have now gone eight games without a win and remain in the bottom two.

The New Saints 0-1 Caernarfon Town: Champions New Saints suffered their second successive defeat - their fourth of the campaign - as Caernarfon Town struck late at Park Hall. Nathan Craig scored the only goal from the penalty spot with four minutes remaining with Saints' Ben Cabango sent-off for committing the foul on Noah Edwards. Saints remain third while Caernarfon are seventh after ending a winless run of six games.

Carmarthen Town 2-3 Cefn Druids: Cefn Druids did the double over fellow strugglers Carmarthen to leave them four points clear of their rivals. Druids stayed ninth with Carmarthen a spot below them, having beaten the same opponents 4-0 at The Rock in September.

Druids' Matty Owen opened the scoring for the hosts with an own goal and Luke Bowen doubled their lead. Alec Mudimu began the fightback before Owen made amends and James Davies delivered the decisive blow.

Connah's Quay Nomads 2-2 Barry Town: Connah's Quay stayed and top with Barry level on points, but in second after because of Nomads' superior goal difference separating the two sides. Barry, who had won their previous four league games, beat Andy Morrison's side 2-0 in September.

On this occasion Michael Bakare scored the game's first goal for Nomads with Momodou Touray levelling before putting the visitors into the lead. Rob Hughes rescued a point for the hosts in the 76th minute.

Newtown 7-1 Llanelli Town: Llanelli remained bottom of the table after another hammering to follow last Saturday's 6-0 loss at Connah's Quay.

The rout that led to Llanelli's fifth successive defeat began with Neil Mitchell's early goal. Luke Boundford added brace before Nick Rushton beat that effort with a hat-trick.

Steven Leslie added the sixth with Kurtis March offering brief respite for the visitors as Ben Bailey scored Newtown's seventh.

The Robins are unbeaten in their last three games but needed a last minute Luke Boundford to rescue a point at Cefn Druids last Friday.
