Saints denied by offside decision

A CONTROVERSIAL and baffling last-minute decision cost Saints a deserved victory against title rivals Caersws.
Scott Ruscoe was felled on the edge of the box and from his free-kick Steve Evans headed cleanly past Bluebirds' keeper Andy Mulliner.
But referee Paul Thomas ruled that Jimmy Aggrey, who followed the ball over the line but did not touch it, was off-side, leaving the points shared.
After the game, Thomas said Aggrey had "momentum" towards the ball, but it was difficult to see how he could have been deemed to be interfering with play.
It was rough justice on TNS who were also denied a first-half penalty when Colin Reynolds felled Marc Lloyd-Williams in the box.
They dominated the game for long periods, although the quality of their final ball let them down.
Barry Hogan burst into the box early on only to see his shot saved and Ruscoe set up Jamie Wood to cross for Mike Wilde to head over.
Marc Lloyd-Williams was also off-target after beating Hugh Clarke, with Jimmy Aggrey missing a golden heading chance at the back post.
TNS were rarely troubled at the back by an unambitious Caersws, although Gerard Doherty was on his toes to push away a 25-yard free-kick from Sean Jehu.
Saints' boss Ken McKenna said: "We've been the side that's come here to win it - they're supposed to be going for the title, but they were more than happy to settle for a draw.
"I thought we were the better side, we played some good football and just needed a better final ball," he added.
