McKENNA SAYS ABER WIN WASN'T PRETTY
Jamie Wood forces his way past Aber's Luke Sherbon.
THE New Saints stayed top of the Welsh Premier courtesy of a narrow home win against Aberystwyth and manager Ken McKenna was a relieved man to bag the three points.
"It wasn't pretty to watch, but Aber are a good side," he said.
"They've got a very difficult system to play against, they invite you on and they've got two very quick lads wide and a centre forward who works hard for them.
"That's as hard a game as we've had this season."
Jamie Wood lit-up a scrappy affair with his 37th-minute goal, latching on to a superb through ball from Alfie Carter to beat a despairing dive from keeper Richard Morgan.
Llanelli beat Rhyl 2-1 to remain in second spot, two points behind TNS, but the title is looking more and more like a two-horse race, with chasers Carmarthen held 2-2 at home by Llangefni and Welshpool slumping to a 1-0 home defeat at the hands of NEWI Cefn Druids on Friday night.
The Saints now face a festive double-header away to Pool on Boxing Day and at home to their local rivals on the first day of the New Year.
