Second half comeback earns Druids and Old Gold a share of the points

Bala and Aber blow half time leads to miss chance to go level with Barry and TNS

Aberystwyth Town 1-1 Carmarthen Town

The home side made it seven games unbeaten but their winning run was brought to an end by Carmarthen at Park Avenue.

Liam Thomas' penalty ten minutes after the break was enough to give the visitors a share of the points, cancelling out as it did Declan Walker's eleventh minute header which had given Aber the lead.

The Old Gold had made the early running, Luke Cummings and Mael Davies both testing Terry McCormick within the first five minutes, but it was the home side who struck first after Walker met Wes Baynes' cross.

The Seasiders then controlled the first half. Ashley Ruane was denied by a good save from Lee Idzi, before Alan Goodall volleyed just wide. Paulo Mendes then hit the bar, as the home side continued to threaten but not convert.

They were left ruing those misses when a handball in the Aber box lead to the penalty decision, Thomas making no mistake from the spot.

The result leaves Aber remaining in fifth, just three points off leaders Connah's Quay.

Cefn Druids 2-2 Bala Town

Bala are also three points off the top, but again could have been just one had they held onto a half time lead at the Rock.

The Lakesiders had raced into a two goal lead early on, Mike Hayes and Henry Jones having them two up inside twenty minutes.

Two could have been three five minutes later when a chance was cleared off the line by Druids, before Anthony Miley fired over on the rebound.

Further first half pressure failed to yield more goals, and Druids responded after the break. James Davies brought them back into the game on 55' with a a close range finish, after they had an earlier goal disallowed for offside.

The woodwork was rattled on the hour mark, before Ashley Morris was called upon to make a couple of key saves, one from Ryan Kershaw and another from Alec Mudimu.

There was nothing he could do though seven minutes from time, when Jordan Evans unleashed a wonder strike to bring the scores level and earn a point for the home side.
