Afan Lido v TNS
Welsh Premier League
Sat 18 Dec 2004: Away - Afan Lido Stadium


SAINTS have a pretty good record in Aberavon, winning 3-2 last season and notching up a record 6-0 away success the year before.
But the lesson of the last two weeks' draws against Cwmbran and Port Talbot is that there are no easy games in the Welsh Premier League.
TNS will be looking to get back to winning ways at the expense of lowly Afan Lido, who have yet to win on their own ground in seven attempts and lie perilously close to the relegation places.
The south Walians put up a stout performance when they visited Treflan on the opening day of the season, restricting Saints to a 2-1 win with goals from Scott Ruscoe and Nicky Ward.
Ken McKenna's men can expect a rugged afternoon down on Princess Margaret Way and will hope Marc Lloyd-Williams can regain his shooting form after three games without a goal since his hat-trick at NEWI Cefn Druids.
Saints should be at full strength with the exception of the injured Chris King and suspended Jimmy Aggrey, sent off in last Saturday's home draw with Port Talbot.
Lido also have their problems with the experienced Leigh Shrimpton's shoulder injury set to keep him out of Mark Robinson's plans for a long spell.
