Saints draw a blank at the Meadow

THE New Saints fought out a goal-less draw against Haverfordwest County at a rain-soaked New Bridge Meadow.

Home boss Derek Brazil admitted his side had been set-up to secure a point and the Bluebirds' goal led a charmed life.
Craig Jones shot just wide of the far post after he had dispossessed Damon Searle and Steve Abbott was also inches wide of the target.
Scott Ruscoe saw his shot tipped over the bar and keeper Lee Idzi foiled Matthew Berkeley.
Ruscoe again went close, missing a gaping goal at the back post from a Craig Williams cross and Edwards was then denied by the woodwork.
County had defender Lee Bevan dismissed three minutes from time following an altercation with Steve Evans as Andy Cale's men extended their clean sheet to 806 minutes of action in all competitions.
"It was really one-way and, on another day, if we had scored an early goal, it could have been five or six," said TNS managing director Mike Harris.
