Cwmbran Town 2-2 TNS
Welsh Premier League
Sat 4 Dec 2004: Away - Cwmbran Stadium

A GOAL deep in stoppage time denied Saints maximum points in a game they just about deserved to win on the balance of play.
With the seconds ticking away, Kaid Mohamed made space on the left and crossed for Paul Coughlin to lash a 20-yard shot past a bemused Gerard Doherty.
Despite playing a hand in the first TNS goal, Coughlin had been outstanding in the Cwmbran midfield and his goal was just reward.
Saints play was like the Curate's egg, their best spell coming after a lacklustre first-half in which they conceded after 21 minutes. There appeared to be little danger when Kristian Hanbury took possession outside the box, but he ran past three defenders before sending a low shot into the bottom corner.
TNS were losing the midfield battle and created little of note, until Mike Wilde ignored pleas from Marc Lloyd-Williams for a cross and sent a shot past Gareth Wesson from 18 yards with the help of a massive deflection from the unlucky Coughlin.
Buoyed by their equaliser, TNS dominated the majority of the second half, although Lloyd-Williams had an off-day. But he played a part in the goal which put Saints ahead, flicking on a through ball for John Toner to fire past Wesson.
Starved of first-half possession, John Lawless now created major problems down the left hand side and there were plenty of chances for the visitors to add to their tally.
The home keeper did well to keep out a Jimmy Aggrey header with help from Kristian James on the line as TNS pressed hard for another.
Beck could have done better after creating space for himself and Wesson again came to the Crows' rescue when he scooped away a Steve Evans header from a corner.
But Saints paid the penalty for taking their foot of the pedal and after Jason Welsh had spurned a half chance on the edge of the box, Coughlin popped up for the equaliser.
