WELSH PREMIER LEAGUE

Airbus UK 1-1 Aberystwyth Town: A late howler from goalkeeper Steve Cann denied Aberystwyth their first away win of the season. Mike Hayes capitalised on Cann's error to score a 77th-minute equaliser.

Aber took the lead inside the first 30 seconds thanks to a Glenn Rule own goal. And there was further frustration for the visitors when new singing Sean Thornton, the former Sunderland midfielder, was sent off on his debut in the final minute.

Carmarthen 1-2 Bangor City: Neil Thomas scored a late winner as champions Bangor City came from behind to win at Richmond Park.

Struggling Carmarthen, now with only one win from seven games, took the lead on 41 minutes through Nick Harrhy. Craig Garside levelled earl after the break and fellow midfielder Thomas popped up to grab the winner for the visitors with seven minutes remaining.

The New Saints 3-0 Afan Lido: The New Saints went level on points with leaders Bala after a dominant home victory against Afan Lido, who remain pointless on their travels.

Midfielder Chris Seargeant put the home side ahead before an own goal by Lido goalkeeper Chris Curtis doubled the advantage 10 minutes before the break. Matty Williams added a third 15 minutes from time.

Newtown 0-4 Neath: Two goals in each half against bottom club Newtown gave Neath their first away points of the season.

Matthew Rees broke the deadlock after 30 minutes and Luke Bowen's header double the advantage. Chris Jones finished off a slick move to score the third before Kerry Morgan saved the best until last with a 20-yard curler into the top corner.

Bala Town 2-4 Llanelli: Leaders Bala relinquished top spot - on goal difference to The New Saints - and their unbeaten start to the season as Llanelli took their tally to 16 goals in three goals.

Two goals from Rhys Griffiths were followed by a Craig Moses strike, before Bala replied with a goal from Liam Loughlin. But any hopes of a fightback ended when Griffiths collected his hat-trick. Rees Darlinton's late effort was scant consolation.

Port Talbot 0-0 Prestatyn Town: Visitors Prestatyn failed to capitalise on Chris Hartland's 65th-minute sending off as Port Talbot held on for a draw.
