Super Saints claim the points at Llanelli

A SUPERB 2-0 win at Llanelli's Stebonheath Park put The New Saints bang into contention for the Welsh Premier title on Sunday.

A goal in each half from Craig Jones and Scott Ruscoe completed a well-deserved success for the Saints, as both sides struggled to play passing football on a rain-soaked Stebonheath Park surface.
Jones caused constant problems down the right hand side for the Reds and was on hand to finish-off a move in the 15th-minute, after former Llanelli wingman Craig Williams crossed for Matthew Berkeley to miscue with an attempted overhead kick.
Ruscoe added the second on 63 minutes with an angled shot through the legs of keeper Ashley Morris from man-of-the-match Berkeley's through ball, and it could have been even worse for the home side.
Aeron Edwards missed a great heading chance from Ruscoe's byline cross just before the break and, after Steve Evans had headed against the bar, Williams should have done better when through on goal from an Edwards pass.
The generally lacklustre hosts had their best spell when Antonio Corbisiero first saw a stinging drive saved by TNS keeper Paul Harrison, before Chris Marriott cleared another effort from the same player off the line moments later.
