Dafabet Welsh Premier League

Friday, 13 November

The New Saints 2-2 Rhyl: League leaders The New Saints were denied an eighth successive victory by a 90th-minute equaliser by John Owen. The home side took a fifth-minute lead through Mike Wilde, and Steve Evans doubled the advantage shortly after the break.

Owen soon pulled one back for the visitors and they were given more encouragement when Chris Seargeant's penalty was saved. TNS looked to have done enough to secure all three points, but Owen salvaged what could prove to be a crucial point for relegation-threatened Rhyl.
