Aberystwyth Town 0-1 Barry Town United: Kayne McLaggon's second half goal secured victory for Barry, who had won only one of their previous six games. Barry are back in fourth spot while Aberystwyth remain ninth.

Connah's Quay Nomads 2-1 Bala Town: Nomads secured their third win of the season over Bala to return to second spot in the Cymru Premier. Former Nomad Johnny Spittle fired Bala ahead on five minutes after goalkeeper Lewis Brass flapped at a corner. But Colin Caton's side failed to put the game to bed and two second half goals from substitute Michael Bakare secured a vital win for Andy Morrison's men, who are now a point behind leaders New Saints.

The New Saints 1-2 Cardiff Met: Champions and current leaders New Saints were stunned at home by Cardiff Met, who boosted their hopes of securing a top six place ahead of the second phase with a first ever league win at Park Hall. Joel Edwards gave Met an early lead following a well worked move before Ryan Brobbel levelled for Saints. But Will Evans' goal secured victory and a timely boost for The Archers, who had Christian Edwards back in charge after a recent heart attack.
