Saints show the glitter against Old Gold

CARMARTHEN Town never looked likely to cause an upset against The New Saints nor end their recent poor record at Park Hall.

The outcome was never really in doubt once Matty Williams had put the hosts in front after eight minutes, stabbing home from close range following a left-wing corner which the Old Gold defence failed to clear.
Keeper Mike Lewis make a superb diving save to keep out Nicky Ward's drive from a Simon Spender pass and Ward headed over from a Craig Jones cross.
The winger was causing endless problems down the right for the Carmarthen defence and finally laid on the second goal, headed home at the far post by Greg Draper, on the stroke of half-time.
A second-half of more TNS domination was illuminated by two superb goals, the first a 25-yard free-kick from Williams which left Lewis with no chance.
And the keeper was again rooted to the spot when Chris Seargeant looked-up 25 yards out and picked out the top left-hand corner with a sizzling effort.
The Carmarthen defence somehow survived a series of raids with some resolute defending and the visitors were only able to fire one shot on target, which failed to test Paul Harrison in a one-sided affair that keeps the Saints at the top of the table.
