SAINTS REWARDED FOR PATIENT DISPLAY
The Steelmen kept a tight grip on leading scorer Marc Lloyd Williams.
KEN McKenna was pleased with the 1-0 win over Port Talbot and felt his side had done well.
"Port Talbot were fantastic and showed lots of character. They could have sneaked it, but we remained calm and patient," he said.
"They packed men behind the ball and kept their shape well as we tried to create gaps by pulling them one way then the other but, fair play to them, they held firm.
"In many ways, this was a more satisfying result than beating a side 5-0.
"We told the players at half-time that if it ended goalless we would take it as it was better than losing 1-0."
Rhyl were held to a draw by Airbus on Friday night leaving the Saints 14 points clear at the top of the Welsh Premier.
Llanelli are emerging as the likely challengers - if they won their games in hand they could close the gap to 10 points and McKenna admits another title is looking a distinct possibility, adding: "It's looking a little better and another few wins might start to get me excited as I feel we can afford a few defeats while our challengers can't."
Port Talbot boss Wayne Davies said he felt 'suicidal'. "We didn't get what we deserved and we are all very disappointed.
"We really defended well and they created very little, although they enjoyed lots of possession," he said.
