Match report WELSH PREMIER

NICKY Ward's brace kept Total Network Solutions in sight of the League of Wales leaders with a hard-earned suc-cess at Aberystwyth.
With title rivals Barry Town and Bangor City also winning, three points was imperative for Saints in their quest for league honours.
But they made a poor start after going behind on 12 minutes when Gavin Allen was allowed space inside the box to fire past keeper Gerard Doherty.
The visitors, however, took just six minutes to get back on terms when Ward crossed from the left, keeper Mike Kinsella failed to hold and Justin Perry headed in at the far post.
The encounter continued to be evenly contested but TNS edged ahead on the stroke of half time when a spell of pressure resulted in Ward crashing a fine low shot into the net from the edge of the box.
Ward went close to adding to his tally after the break when firing a couple of efforts wide while at the other end, the impressive Jonathan Tappin also put a shot off target.
John Toner missed a good chance for the visitors when firing wide after beating Kinsella but Aber were also pushing as former TNS striker Anthony Wright brought a fine save from Doherty with a fierce st ike from the edge of the box.
Doherty also made a good reaction stop from Glyndwr Hughes whose shot was deflected off teammate Huw Jones 10 minutes from time.
But a minute later, the Saints made sure of the points when a comer from Jodie Jenkins was deflected off Gary Powell's head and Ward volleyed the loose ball into the net.
