Saints miss their chance
TNS missed the chance to open up a six-point gap on rivals Rhyl and put one hand on the Welsh Premier championship trophy as they lost their second league game of the season to a single goal.
A Paul Roberts strike from Phil Baker's cross after 68 minutes gave Bangor the points against a Saints line-up that looked jaded after their midweek exertions against Swansea.
A scrappy encounter produced little in the way of chances, although Michael Wilde was unlucky when his first-half effort hit the post with City keeper Phil Priestley beaten.
Tommy Holmes blocked a goalbounder Baker effort at the other end in a forgettable first period hardly likely to set the TV viewers' pulses racing.
The Citizens had the better of the second-half action, with Carl Lamb setting up Les Davies, who could have done better from eight yards out.
Eifion Jones blocked another Wilde shot which was heading on target, but the best opening fell to Bangor's Paul Roberts, who could only shoot weakly at Gerard Doherty after being put clear by Kevin Scott.
The goal spurred TNS into action and a Chris King surging run and cross saw John Lawless fire wide.
Marc Lloyd-Williams had come on as a substitute and looked strangely out of sorts against his old club, missing completely from eight yards out in the final minute.
