Joint leaders can't be separated

THE league’s top two could not be separated on points or goal difference going into a contest which failed to alter the situation.
Two evenly-contested sides fought out an epic game, played at a high tempo and which was a credit to the league.
Michael Wilde came closest to snatching the spoils when he hit a post with eight minutes remaining and, when Steven Beck smashed the rebound into the net, referee Mark Whitby disallowed the effort because Scott Ruscoe had called "leave it".
TNS might feel hard done by but, in truth, the hosts more than deserved a share of the spoils. They played a full part in a contest in which both defences dominated.
Nicky Ward went close in the early minutes and only a last-ditch tackle by Kevin Aherne-Evans, playing his final game in an Old Gold shirt before emigrating to Australia, denied Mike Wilde’s surge on goal from the half-way line.
Mark Dodds fired wide from 20 yards for the hosts and Danny Thomas was wide with his effort from a Colin Loss break which ended with Nathan Cotterrall’s cross.
A Kris Thomas shot was almost deflected into the net by Dodds, with the Saints’ Wilde firing straight at Neil Thomas when put through by a Barry Hogan flick.
On the resumption, Dodds was just over from Cotterrall’s pass, before Carmarthen produced their best attack. Loss found Cotterrall wide on the left and his cross to the far post was fired against Doherty’s legs by sub Sacha Walters.
Wilde also found the roof of the net with a header from Steven Beck’s cross after good work by John Toner, but neither side could find a breakthrough and, in the end, both were happy to settle for a point.
Carmarthen played the final minutes with 10 men as Tom Ramasut received a second yellow for deliberate handball, with coach Mark Aizlewood’s protestations leading to him being sent from the dugout.
