Jiws edges Saints closer to title repeat

A MARC Lloyd Williams goal and another clean sheet from an outstanding defence ensured TNS moved within nine points of retaining their Welsh Premier title.
Lloyd Williams struck his 24th league goal of the season in an entertaining contest on a superb New Bridge Meadow playing surface which both sides used to their advantage.
Barry Hogan's sublime through ball gave Jiws the chance to outpace Haverfordwest player/boss Deryn Brace and fire past keeper Lee Kendall in the 32nd minute.
The striker had earlier hit the post in the 24th minute following a superb John Toner cross while minutes later Michael Wilde looked through on goal only to pass to strike partner Jiws, who fired over.
Chances were scarce as both defences dominated and, although the Bluebirds had plenty of possession, they never looked likely to cause an upset.
Their best efforts came from Nicky Palmer, who headed wide just after the break, and an angled drive in the 89th minute which was well held by Saints' keeper Gerard Doherty.
Michael Jackson again figured in the back line, which was disrupted on the hour by the loss of Tommy Holmes with a thigh strain, with Martyn Naylor coming on as a replacement.
It was TNS who almost had the last word when sub Graham Evans, making a welcome return from injury, tried to lob Kendall from the edge of the box, but his effort fell short.
