Steven Beck gets the plaudits after scoring for TNS [Liz Pearce].
CAERNARFON led Llanelli 3-1 after 24 minutes at The Oval, but finished on the wrong end of a 4-3 scoreline, leaving manager Steve O'Shaughnessy disappointed.
"I cannot fault our players, who all gave 100%, but I have to be disappointed that, having gone 3-1 ahead, we were not able to finish the job," he said.
"While Llanelli took their chances well, we were guilty of poor defending and to concede four goals at home is not acceptable."
The win leaves the Reds top of the Welsh Premier, three points clear of Rhyl who beat Airbus UK Broughton 2-1 at Belle Vue. Manager John Hulse was unimpressed after watching his side struggle against the Wingmakers, who had defender Steve Hopkins sent-off an keeper Andy Hughes replaced through injury.
Lilywhites manager John Hulse was far from impressed. "We went out with the wrong attitude," said the Lillies' boss.
"There was no urgency in our play and Airbus seemed more up for it than us, but I suppose if you have a bad night at the races and still win it can’t be bad."
After a poor start to the season, reigning champions The New Saints leapfrogged Carmarthen into third place with a 3-0 win at Richmond Park.
And manager Ken McKenna revealed the incentive of an extra day off helped inspire his side to victory.
A sparkling second-half show produced three goals in 10 minutes and McKenna said:
"I thought we looked tired in the first half after the long trip down. I had a few words at half time and told the lads they could have Monday off if they won and it seemed to do the trick."
