Williams sparks six-goal Saints

THE Saints have been crying out for some width down the left-hand side since the departures of Chris King and Luke Holden, and new arrival Craig Williams looks the answer to the prayer.
A long-time target for TNS, Williams only signed from Llanelli on Friday, but quickly made his mark after coming-off the bench to replace Phil Baker, who bruised his heel.
When Alfie Carter cut inside Ryan Davies, his pass found Williams, who netted from close range for a debut goal to put the Saints two-up.
And he went on to terrorise the Port defence with some incisive running and excellent deliveries into the box.
Earlier, the hosts had struggled to prise open a resolute visiting defence until a dreadful gaffe by former TNS marksman Marc Lloyd Williams.
After testing keeper Paul Harrison with a sharp shot, Jiws under-hit a back-pass which ound Carter free to advance on keeper Richard Harvey and score with aplomb.
The Williams goal sparked a goal rush, with Jamie Wood playing a one-two with Alex Darlington before displaying some tricky footwork to create an opening and crash his shot past Harvey.
Some neat footwork by Barry Hogan created the chance for Darlington to crash his volley into the net via the far post and Hogan was also involved in the final goal, setting-up Wood who crossed for sub John Toner to back-heel on the line.
In between, Michael wilde atoned for some earlier misses by finding the target from Wood's pass as Saints went top of the league on goal difference from Rhyl.
